    For October High Point Market, new exhibitors in SALON include 1429 mfg; Addison Weeks; BY FLY; Ceramicarte Deruta; GreenApple; Honour Collection; Kim Salmela for Norwalk Furniture; SE7E; Society Social and X8 Chairs.

    Society Social designs and produces small but edited collections of unique furniture built in-house. The Society Social product line includes North Carolina-made upholstery, case goods and occasional furniture from textured raffia tables to faux bamboo bar carts, and rattan and cane mirrors and furniture.

    “At Society Social, it has always been about accessible price points and playful design,” said founder Roxy Te. “We are thrilled to bring our latest collection along with our seasoned best sellers to High Point Market as we feel our level of customization and at our price points will be an exciting addition to the Market. You can expect to find colorful custom raffia available in 1,500 colors, North Carolina-made upholstery, case goods, mirrors, and more!"

    1429 mfg will be moving from the top floor to SALON and features a range of modern and mid-century styles, from occasional to dining to wall accent. The line includes consoles, dining, accent and cocktail tables, headboards and wall panels for residential and commercial use.

    “The move to SALON represents the next chapter of 1429 mfg as we are maturing from a duo collaboration to a full-scale operational organization,” says Bridgette Hamilton, co-founder and owner of 1429 mfg. “We are so excited to meet new designers and buyers who are seeking something fresh and different.”

    Ngala Trading Co. is returning to High Point Market with a selection of African-design and manufactured luxury lighting and curated home décor products. All products are high quality and made entirely by hand somewhere in Africa.

    "Ngala Trading Co. debuted at High Point Market exactly a year ago in October, and due to the favorable response from our customers in SALON, we have now doubled our space and will be introducing a colorful fabric range as well as a new line of furniture and décor called Avoova,” said Lawson Ricketts and Nick Geimer, co-founders of Ngala Trading Co. “Avoova features intricate ostrich eggshell mosaic designs that appeal to a high-end designer with a sophisticated, discerning eye — exactly the clientele that High Point Market attracts.”

    This Market, SALON will also debut a new entrance, lighting and carpet as part of a renovation of the Ground Floor.

    “We’re excited to unveil the renovations in SALON at High Point Fall Market,” said Julie Messner, senior vice president of furniture and home décor leasing for International Market Centers. “The updates represent IMC’s commitment to the design-focused companies who invest resources in SALON each Market. SALON continues to be a must-see destination for buyers trying to create excitement on retail floors and in design studios.”
