IMC enhances resources at Fall 2019 High Point Market

International Market Centers (IMC) noted that 34 new, relocating and renewing showrooms will enhance the breadth and depth of resources in the International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC) at Fall 2019 High Point Market, which runs from Oct. 19-23, 2019.

2019 Fall High Point Market

“IHFC offers the largest collection of home furnishings at High Point Market, with an assortment of companies that range from best décor and accessories such as Global Views and Phillips Collection, to large-scale furniture companies such as Ashley and Bernhardt,” said Scott Eckman, president of furniture and home décor leasing for IMC. “IHFC offers buyers and designers an expansive cross-category lineup of product.”

Eleven exhibitors will make their High Point Market debut in IHFC this fall, while another four tenants will debut new showrooms in IHFC. Additionally, 19 relocating or renewing showrooms are slated for October.

“High Point Market is valuable to our business for product sourcing, networking and educational opportunities,” said Howard Rosenbaum, president of expanding exhibitor RFA Décor. “We also meet new suppliers and other potential partners; but it’s not just buying and selling. There are educational events every day, so we learn from other people in the industry. ”

A number of new, relocating and renewing exhibitors are using Fall Market as a springboard to debut new product. Artmax is introducing nearly 100 new pieces; Cooper Classics is debuting a Natural Mirror Collection; Impressions Vanity Company is introducing the Slaystation and Hollywood Glow collections;KAS Rugs is launching a new collection with designer Libby Langdon; and RFA Décor is showcasing new artists and more than 100 new artworks.

Additionally, long-time IHFC exhibitor Bernhardt Furniture is expanding its upscale line to include a debut collection of luxe outdoor furniture for Fall Market. “We’re excited to present these new pieces in October for Bernhardt Exteriors,” said Alex Bernhardt, Jr., president and CEO.

Beyond exhibits, IHFC offers marketgoers a range of educational and networking opportunities, including seminars and social events. Additionally, there will be two IHFC tours that showcase contemporary highlights and Made in America products. A schedule of IMC-sponsored IHFC events is available online.
