BoConcept, a Danish-based company with more than 255 stores worldwide, has moved into the Channel District neighborhood of downtown Tampa.
The new 5,400-square-foot storefront at Grand Central at Kennedy
in the Channel District
is BoConcept's only brand store in Florida. The 60-year-old company has 24 stores in the United States. A grand opening for its latest in Tampa is planned for September 20.
“We offer customized, coordinated and affordable design furniture,” says owner Ray Priddle. “Customized because our products can be designed to match the needs and dreams of our customers. Coordinated because we take a holistic approach in the development and design of our product range. Design because we are a design company with our own designers. Affordable because we want to spoil our customers by giving them great value.”
Making modern design furniture available to urban-minded, design savvy customers throughout the world, Priddle says it's important to remember that the word "urban" describes an aesthetic and state of mind, not a location.
“You can have a house with urban design in the middle of the burbs,” he says.
And, he says, a visit to the new Channel District BoConcept
can help you achieve that.
“We believe that we will help the Channel District and downtown Tampa
show its modern, urban face to the world,” Priddle says. “And if, for some reason, people can't make it along to the store, they can always have fun designing their ideal sofa on our website
An in-store event, coinciding with the monthly Flicks and Food Trucks
event in Channelside
, will be held on Thursday, July 19th, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
“We would love to see anyone interested in modern design in the store for a glass of wine.”
