HIGH POINT, N.C. – (April 1, 2021) – The International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC) is experiencing a notable surge in leasing activity for Spring 2021 High Point Market, running June 5 – June 9, 2021, with more than 60 new, relocated, expanded and recommitted showrooms among the building’s 450 resources this June.
“Along with being High Point Market’s largest property, IHFC features hundreds of the industry’s biggest brands and is home to the popular InterHall collection,” said Scott Eckman, International Market Center’s (IMC) chief revenue officer. “Each market, IHFC is bustling with activity and this recent round of leasing gains strengthens its place as a must-see sourcing destination at the furnishings industry’s largest trade show.”
Three exhibitors are making their IHFC debut: long-time High Point Market participant Mainly Baskets (baskets, lighting, tabletop and wall decor) opens a new 264-square-foot showroom and two High Point Market newcomers – Aros Rep/Troels Denmark (fabrics and leathers) in 3,373 square feet and Hi-Rock Home (chairs, recliners, sectionals and swivels) in 5,815 square feet – will have a first-time presence at the market.
