WARREN, Mich., Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Making spirits bright! Oh what fun Art Van Furniture has in store for families this holiday season at its fourth annual Art Van Wonderland display in Grand Rapids (4375 28th Street SE). The Midwest's No. 1 furniture and mattress retailer's showroom will be brimming with breathtaking holiday trimmings and decor. Guests will get their first glimpse of this year's spectacle at an official lighting ceremony and special community event on Thursday, November 12. The dazzling Art Van Wonderland will be a must-see destination for young and old alike to shop, stroll and savor the spirit of the season.
Over one million lights will illuminate the store inside and out.

Throughout the store, enormous birch branches adorned with sparkling sequins, metallic touches and holiday-themed decor will be suspended overhead.
Families will be transported into jolly old St. Nick's cozy living room at Art Van Furniture's new custom-built, movie-style Santa set, complete with a fireplace, frosted faux windows, ornate velvet throne, and Christmas trees, with classic Lionel trains circling their base, will be imaginatively decorated using toy-themed ornaments.
