C&D Building Hosts New Product Lines and Social Events for HP Market
“The C&D building meets the needs of every type of buyer and designer,” said Julie Messner, Sr. VP of furniture and home décor leasing for International Market Centers. “With innovative products ranging from commercial to organic and sustainable, the C&D building is a key destination for every Market-goer.”
New this Market, luxury lighting, furniture and décor brand Arteriors (C&D, 1A, B, G) is opening a new showroom on the ground floor. The new location has a footprint that’s twice the size of Arteriors’ former showroom in the IHFC building. Prior to this move, Arteriors has shown at the International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC) since Mark Moussa founded the company in 1987, more than 30 years ago.
“We believe that our customers will appreciate a more streamlined and open experience,” Moussa said. “In the last two years, we’ve invested in more ways to show the versatility of our product assortment, including expanding our visual merchandising team to create new moments of inspiration for our products to shine through. Our new High Point showroom will embody that same initiative at a much greater scale, and we are excited to find a new home in the C&D building to showcase this new era of the brand.”
At Market, Arteriors will present the Playa Posh collection by designer Windsor Smith. The collection will feature lighting, seating, tabletop and accessories in shades of tan, white-gray blue, rosy copper, and shimmering golds.
Visual Comfort, a manufacturer of designer lighting, will be showcasing hundreds of new designs at the October Market. The Visual Comfort line includes lighting fixtures, portable lighting, hospitality and contract design, outdoor living, kitchen and bath lighting, and private label design.
Sarreid (C&D, 3D), a source for exceptional home accessories and bench made occasional furniture, will showcase numerous introductions, including its Wall Cabinet; Four-Door Storage Cabinet; Two-Door, Three-Drawer Cabinet; Tall Cabinet and Fairmont Cabinet. The Sarreid line includes bench-made solid hardwood furniture, antiques, European and American reproductions, and an eclectic collection of decorative home furnishings and accents.
