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.”
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.

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.
“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:
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 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.
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.
