Furniture Fun, Selfies and High Point Market

What would you define as “fun?” Amusement parks, dance parties, champagne punch? When we think of fun, we think of High Point Market, a beautiful spacious showroom and the #NAHPSelfie wall. This past High Point Market furniture fair was not only fun, but also gave us the warm fuzzies. Twice a year over 75,000 buyers travel to High Point North Carolina to see the latest in everything for the home. Twice a year, we hope to dazzle and inspire visitors with our own designs. This time, we think we did just that. Feed back was very positive and encouraging. We had a chance to not only meet new customers, but also to really connect with visitors encouraging them to write on our #NAHPSelfie wall. Best of all, the Channel 2 news, WFMY News 2 selected our designer Tina Nicole to talk about hot trends for the fall furniture market – watch now News2! Also, here are just some of the highlights from the show…

What’s the Buzz at High Point Market 2015

Drawing inspiration from an eclectic mix of global sources, ranging from the fashion runways of Paris to the street murals of New York, we are pleased to debut our new seating and accent pieces this season in our IHFC InterHall showroom, space IH-411, during fall High Point Market; October 17, 2015 – October 22, 2015.

 

Our Fall introductions include two new fashion-forward sectional collections, a dramatic accent bench and major additions to the Elan collection, which had a successful launch at the April trade show.

The contemporary-styled Elan collection expands with two new occasional chairs, two benches and a limited edition Elan/S swivel chair, inspired by the “De Stijl” Dutch artistic movement of the early 20th century.

ELAN/S CHAIR LIMITED ED.

 

The new Elan/S swivel chair is shown at Market in a bold print, with brightly colored fragments of faces, shapes and numbers. The limited edition chair was selected as a featured item in one of the IHFC’s three special TrendWatch displays. In addition to its unique fabric applications, the Elan/S chair also features a creative overstitching detail.

“Patchwork was a big trend on fashion runways this season,” said Tina Nicole, our co-owner and lead designer, about her design influences for this market. “For Elan, we’ve taken this 1970s-inspired look and put our own distinct spin on it by creating a faceted effect on the furniture silhouettes with overstitching.”

ELAN/O CHAIR

 

ELAN/W CHAIR

 

Other new pieces in the collection include the Elan/O occasional chair, with hairpin metal legs; Elan/W chair, with wood legs; and the Elan/A large bench and Elan/A bench, a smaller scaled version.

ELAN/A WATERFALL BENCH (LARGE)

 

ELAN WATERFALL BENCH (SMALL)

 

The Elan/A large bench features a fully upholstered silhouette, including the legs, taking a cue from the company’s popular Ansonia-U accent chair and Phoxie-U wingback chair, which also are now offered in fully upholstered versions with fabric-covered legs.

ANSONIA/U CHAIR

 

PHOXIE/U CHAIR

 

“Extending the upholstery reach to the floor lends sartorial sophistication, like a plunging pantsuit,” said Nicole. “It’s a clever twist that gives each piece a completely different personality. We believe that good tailoring and well-suited silhouettes are always in style.”

In addition to the expansion of the Elan collection, our other introductions this market include:

GABLE SECTIONAL

 

This new sectional collection features a clean, contemporary silhouette. In addition to architecturally shaped metal legs, Gable sports a unique stitching treatment that frames the outside arm and back for extra eye appeal when the piece is floated in a room. This new design is offered in two versions: With button tufting (Gable) or without button tufting (Gable/P).

WILSHIRE SECTIONAL

 

Wilshire is a Danish modern-inspired take on our best-selling, clean-lined transitional Haus collection. It includes a bench seat and steel base in three different finishes — polished chrome, modern brass and gunmetal.

VALENTINO BENCH

 

This new bench features a modern shape upholstered in a white, Tibetan lamb cover. Fun and modern, the Valentino bench can be used as an accent seat in a living area or to dress up the end of a bed.

3. BIG TREND: THE PANT SUIT

Good tailoring and well-suited silhouettes never get dull. Emilio Pucci brought it top to bottom. Our new Phoxie-U and Ansonia-U chairs, and new Elan-A Large bench have been suited from top to ground like the silhouette of the “plunging jumpsuits” on the runway!
