His passion to provide an intimate and distinctive collection of merchandise to enhance a home is clearly reflected in the assortment being offered on the site today - which is a small start to the vision for the company. The Ivory Company offers bed, bath, table linens, furniture, tableware and decorative accessories like figurines, frames, garden stools and vases. The site also sells decor gifts.The introduction of Zara Home ( www.zarahome.com) to the US market in 2012 is a key validation that the home decor consumer is seeking alternative value conscious merchandise. Well established high-end retailers like Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Williams Sonoma, Gumps and Crate and Barrel provide a wide assortment in home decor.  The Ivory Company's vision is to be the pioneer in creating a luxury experience for a price sensitive consumer seeking to enhance the aura of their living spaces - an assortment in the color " ivory and white" with a classic and timeless home decor sensibility. The funding allows the company to launch catalogs combined with a concept showroom in Atlanta. Shelley comments "While the online experience is critical to capture the sale, we want our customers to experience our brand through the channel of their preference. Our long term strategy is to open concept showrooms in all the major cities in US. "Shelley's founding team has decades of experience in the retail industry. The angel funding is provided by a global venture capital company in addition to several retail visionaries. Contact: media@theivorycompany.comPhoto(s): http://www.prlog.org/12082644
