Decorating Den Brings Professionals from 25 States to High Point Furniture Market
“We have been bringing our design professionals to High Point showrooms and factory tours for more than 20 years,” said David Haseley, senior vice president of merchandising and marketing.
“In the last ten years, we have brought about 100 (design professionals) each year and have had our most ambitious schedules of showroom visits. We think we are the largest designer buying group firm that visits Market.”
“We will be visiting 21 showrooms of suppliers that participate in our LIVV Home Collection™,” Haseley explained. “We organize into several groups with each having its own schedule. But all groups will visit the same showrooms.”
“Due to the number of suppliers that now participate in our program, it is not possible to see them all, so we rotate from Market to Market. Our designers appreciate the personal extra attention they get and the product knowledge they gain. They also enjoy the camaraderie of being together with their peers, especially at our evening social events.”
They are represented by designers from 25 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
