FALL HIGH POINT MARKET — More than 340 companies, including about 75 new exhibitors, will be showing the world’s Home Furnishings news in temporary showrooms during the Oct. 17-22 High Point Market. They will exhibit the Home Furninshing Trends for 2016 and the best sellers for fall 2015.
The 1st (top floor), mezzanine and ground floors in SAMS feature a new presentation with a mix of products and resources merchandized by style and category, as well as new dining options.
Over the course of fall market, top tastemakers will conduct free “Suite Spot” tours to share their favorite finds throughout the floors. There are 10 such designer-led tours in all, each with CEU accreditation.
“We’re committed to providing the ideal platform for buyers and sellers to do business,” said Julie Messner, senior vice president for furniture leasing in High Point for International Market Centers, “and having one central location for temporary showrooms makes the shopping experience infinitely easier and more convenient for everyone. With hundreds of companies this market on three cohesive floors, we are uniquely positioned to expose buyers to a tremendous amount of new and one-of-a-kind cross-category resources.”
To assist buyers navigating the new SAMS floors and to provide a first-hand look at what trendsetters think are must-see’s at High Point Market, attendees can spend an hour on a guided “Suite Spot” tour with one of them.
This October, tastemakers including Rue’s Kelli Lamb and Victoria de la Camara, HGTV Home’s Nancy Fire, interior designers Kim Radovich, Bobby Berk, Corey Damen Jenkins, Justin Shaulis, and FORM’s Joshua Rose and Rafael Kalichstein, share their favorite finds on each floor.
