Presenting sponsor announced for 2014 Homearama

The Home Builders Association of Southeastern Michigan (HBA) is proud to announce that Gorman’s Home Furnishings & Interior Design has been designated presenting sponsor for the first Homearama® celebration in more than a decade. Michael Stoskopf, CEO of the HBA commented, “We are extremely excited that Gorman’s will be playing such a significant role in the event.”

The event will be hosted at the spectacular new Pinnacle luxury estate home community developed by Moceri, located off the north side of Silverbell Road, east of Adams Road in Oakland Township, MI. Pinnacle is majestic in every detail, from its grand entry walls, to its original sculptures, to its amazing water features and iron work. No detail has been overlooked. The crème de la crème at the 2014 Ultimate Homearama® will be the six residential masterpieces, built by Arteva Homes, Cranbook Custom Homes, MJC Companies, and Moceri Homes, all lavishly decorated and landscaped by some of the nation’s top professionals. The public will have the opportunity to see all the one-of-a-kind concepts found in the $2.8 – $4 million custom homes through self guided tours.

The Ultimate Homearama® will be launched with a gala Charity Preview Party on Wednesday, August 27, 2014, from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. All ticket proceeds will be donated to Rainbow Connection and Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County. The event will be open to the public from August 29, 2014 (Labor Day weekend) through September 14, 2014. Hours are 11:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 12:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets and information are available at

“The Ultimate Homearama® is more than just a way for designers and builders to exhibit their creativity and skill,” said Tom Lias, Gorman’s president and COO. “Gorman’s has partnered with Moceri Homes and Dominick Tringali’s Architectural Collection to tie together the elegance of their three dream homes by adding our exceptional interior design and home furnishings to create the pièce de résistance.” 

A team of Gorman’s designers conceptualized and will bring to life three distinctive lifestyles to complement each of the Moceri/Tringali homes: New Traditional, Collected, and Transitional. Construction of all six multi-million dollar homes is nearing completion.

The Ultimate Homearama® has also attracted the attention of several other high-profile sponsors. Along with Gorman’s Home Furnishings & Interior Design, Detroit Media Partnership, XFINITY®, and many more. “It’s a privilege to be part of the Ultimate Homearama®,” said Tom Lias. “What it represents – quality, beauty, innovation – is exactly what Gorman’s brings to every project. A person’s home is the most important place on earth, and the Ultimate Homearama® is a celebration of that fact,” he commented.

“The Ultimate Homearama® is a recognized symbol of excellence in the housing industry, showcasing some of the most beautiful homes and communities in the area,” stated Stoskopf. “Bringing the Dream Home is the event’s theme because it offers something for everyone. Many will come looking for the right builder or for fresh decorating and interior design ideas; and some will also be looking to buy a home. The Ultimate Homearama® is also a great event for those who just want an entertaining experience and the opportunity to see what their dream home might one day look like.”

“All six homes will exhibit the latest trends in design, construction, and technology including professional-grade kitchens, spa-style master retreats, spectacular exterior and interior water features, idyllic landscapes, unique outdoor living experiences, theater-quality home entertainment systems, tasting rooms, original-themed Man Caves, and more surprises around every corner,” commented, Dominick Tringali, architect for the three Moceri homes.

“This year, Homearama® is more than just a home showcase,” Stoskopf said. “It’s a tangible sign that our region is growing again. It’s not just Oakland County or new construction. This is about all of Michigan and our entire economy recovering and gaining momentum.”
