High Point Furniture Market

Review of the High Point Furniture Market


We went to market expected price increases, the weeks before I recieved a letters from everyone of my vendors explaining why we would be getting increases . Then you go to market and not a word mention, I assume in the coming weeks I will have a ailbox full of new price lists, I guess no one really likes to talk about the elephant in the room.

They had plenty of entertainment and kept market fun and festive.

Flexsteel was hoping as always with reps and vendors, They have really beefed up their stationary division . The latitudes reclienr collection hits the right price point with quality, The combos they have matched up are spot on, I look forward to adding some new photography on the website just as soon as I get it, See the site for new Latitudes Collection coming soon.

The private label showroom was beautiful and Green Leaf styles will be beefed up shortly. Carolina Custom added four new groups and all of them sat well and added to the existing line.

Legacy Leather showed at there new location , and seemed to back at business under the new headquarters at Campio.

The real news story was the Buffalo or Bison showing up on all showrooms, This is actually bison hides or buffalo hides, SOOO big note to consumers you will have to ask now is this Cow or Buffalo or Bison, The buffalo seemed to less of a desirable product, showing a lot of hair fociles and stiffness. I have to admit the Bison was really beautiful and had an excellent hand, but really wasn't a huge savings.  We will see if the buffalo has a place in the leather industry or if it was just intro that will fade. Seemed like a hard sell , time will tell
