Inspiring family and friends to connect more often in the home.
Human beings are social creatures by nature – they long to talk, share, interact and connect with those who are near and dear to them. Unfortunately, these connective needs are often trumped by the demands of an ever-quickening pace-of-life.
Great Gatherings has taken up the challenge of changing the way people gather and connect. We strive to be the antidote to a hectic and hurried lifestyle. It’s our belief that nothing is more important than satisfying our innate need for socialization. Thus, our stores celebrate social interaction in the home.
Our brand vision is full of ideas and possibilities. It is a vision that encourages us to find new ways to inspire (and equip) people to connect with each other more often in the home.
We strive to create an extraordinary shopping experience that enables you to fully visualize what your home’s entertaining space can become.
The goal is to inspire everyone our product touches to spend more time gathering in their homes for fun with families and friends. It is our desire to do all we can to foster the growth of positive connection that helps build family values, traditions and memories that will pass from generation to generation.
The value we hold in our own families and friends should be apparent to everyone that is a part of our mission. We will continue to put family first, while also building a healthy and sustainable work culture that enables everyone to achieve fulfillment within their lives.
GreatGatherings was created by American Heritage Billiards in 2005 to help inspire friends and family to gather more often in their homes. We believe that every gathering, no matter how large or small, is an opportunity to create cherished memories that last lifetimes. We opened our first retail stores in 2008 in the Washington, D.C. marketplace.
In GreatGatherings, we’ve built a place that brings the most inspiring elements of entertaining together in one place so that you can easily visualize and experience all the unique and exciting ways to remake, enhance or create the entertaining space of your dreams.
As creators of the world’s finest home entertainment furnishings, GreatGatherings offers magnificent game room and outdoor furniture selections and much, much more.
You’ll find furniture that is crafted in its entirety by the finest artisans in the world. You’ll find the highest quality service delivered by a passionate group of people who love to celebrate. And you’ll find incredible value, not found at any other retailer.
We would be honored to have the opportunity to help you, your family and friends disconnect from any and all mobile and electronic devices for just a few minutes a week, to reconnect, the old fashioned way!
