“IHFC is High Point Market’s largest property and features hundreds of the industry’s biggest brands in 3.5 million square feet of permanent showrooms and the distinguished InterHall collection,” said Scott Eckman, president of furniture and home décor leasing for International Market Centers. “IHFC’s lineup includes an assortment of companies that range from best décor and accessories such as Global Views and Phillips Collection, to large-scale furniture companies such as Ashley and Bernhardt.”
Three newcomers will make their High Point Market debut in IHFC this spring, including Crystorama (interior and outdoor lighting); Level 57 Art Studio (art); and RDT (furniture).
“We are thrilled to unveil our new showroom in High Point and have greatly expanded our product offerings, so the time was right to showcase our new designs to an increasing following of designers and home décor buyers,” said Nancy Lonoff, marketing director of Crystorama. “High Point Market is the epicenter of the home furnishing industry and we are so excited to meet new customers and experience the energy and excitement of April Market.”

These exhibitors include: Art Classics (canvas reproduction art); Bontempi Casa (beds, bookcases, desks, occasionals, seating); Hubbardton Forge (handcrafted lighting); and Port 68 (accessories, accent furniture, lighting, pendants, wall decor).
