IHFC’s InterHall Gets Facelift

By Home Furnishings Business in High Point on April 2007 InterHall, the upper-end, high-style section of the International Home Furnishings Center, is undergoing a renovation and facelift.

Construction, which will nearly double the size of InterHall, is expected to be completed in time for the fall High Point Market. The renovation will net an additional 21 showroom space and will take the area from three aisles to six. Spaces will range from 350 square feet to 1,400 square feet. Once complete, InterHall will be home to about 60 exhibitors.

€œThis exciting project is a continuation of our progress in remaking IHFC,€ said Tom Lindh, president. €œIt makes ense to put our best foot forward in InterHall, and that€™s what we€™re going to do. The new InterHall reinforces High Point€™s role as the industry€™s introduction market.€

The project follows€”and extends€”last year€™s renovation of the Commerce lobby that transformed IHFC€™s main entrance into a modern, upscale environment. While the new design preserves InterHall€™s open, engaging appeal, spaces will have permanent walls for the first time. Aisles will feature scored, stained concrete, and the ambience will be enhanced with halogen track lighting. Many of the design details are still under review.

InterHall will also feature a limited number of €œshowcase rooms,€ a new concept at the market, according to Gaye Outlaw, who is managing the project Selected IHFC exhibitors will spotlight vignettes of major new collections in these spaces scattered throughout InterHall, directing visitors to their showrooms.
