Warren-based Gardner White’s new American Life Collection in Shelby Township will showcase its’ exclusive, specially curated, Americana-inspired home furnishings, accent pieces, and authenticated collector items at a Red, White and Beautiful grand opening party from 6-8 p.m. on Feb. 9.

The soiree, which is open to the public, will welcome Michigan designers, Lori and Lou Mettler, owners of Mettlers American Mercantile in Petoskey. The Mettlers collaborated closely with Gardner White on the American Life Collection from concept to creation.

Detroit entertainer Ben Sharkey will perform live and signature cocktails and light refreshments will be served. Attendees also will be given a Gardner White golden ticket for 30 percent off merchandise at any of the company’s 13 stores through Feb. 12. Some restrictions may apply.

“Lori and Lou are a legendary design duo up north, and we’re thrilled that their many Michigan fans will have an opportunity to talk with them about the unique design and décor they helped curate in our American Life Collection,” says Rachel Stewart, president of Gardner White. “Lou’s genius at Ralph Lauren and Tommy Bahama helped reshape the American shopping experience, just as Gardner White is transforming the way Michiganders shop to furnish their homes.”
