    • Hi Ann, showrooms are compiled based on various factors. Be sure that your listing’s title, description, brand, etc. are all accurately filled out. These showrooms are updated as new items are listed, so while you may not see yours right away, it very well could be included. Sometimes your size filter may be automatically applied, so that could be another reason it may not initially appear. Hope that helps!
