Market to Market Journey Phase Three

Can you believe Market is just 4 weeks away?? On this journey to market we are busy finishing up our last orders for market. Our team of designers has gone room by room designing the 80,000 square feet of space here in our High Point showroom. Making our selections for upholstery and casegoods simultaneously allows us to be very creative and make the whole room very cohesive.

With our market orders into the factory, we are now moving all the pieces that are still in showroom. By sorting the furniture into a central place in each room we can decide where each piece should be for October Market. It's important for us to be organized in such a big showroom!

And now the fun begins! We have multiple trucks arriving to the showroom weekly from Hickory. Off the truck, into the freight elevator, up to the showroom, and into place.

Fresh off the truck- this sofa looks great!
It is amazing to see the pieces in all the new and different finishes! Here is a chest from our Madera collection finished in fossil.  Doesn't even look like the one in the catalog. 
For another chest from our Milan collection we selected a Desert and Smoke combination. How pretty is that?!
Check out this great chair in a new fabric and finish for the Bob Timberlake area!

We love seeing how beautifully the pieces come out of the factory. Below is another gorgeous new fabric on the Trellis chair from our Oscar de la Renta collection!

We're so excited for the rest of the pieces to get to the showroom! And now I must get back to the floor to start the next step in the journey to market-  staging and propping the rooms.  
Be sure to visit our showroom during market to see the final result.
