Mod Brands Takes HB2 Stand, Pulls Out of High Point Market
Mod Life Collection, co-founded by 30-year industry veteran, Robert Petril and Kiersten Hathcock, founder of sister company, Mod Mom Furniture, made the decision to withdraw from exhibiting at the upcoming High Point Market in April.
Petril, CEO of Mod Life Collection said “Like so many of our friends and colleagues in the industry, we were shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of HB2. Both Kiersten and I are people who greatly value diversity and inclusion and feel strongly, given the position we are in, we need to take a stand”
Mod Life Collection has exhibited at High Point Market since April 2015 and prior to HB2, planned to showcase new designs as well as launch Mod Mom branded sofas. The Mod Mom Furniture upholstery launch will now debut after market.
