    John Boyd Designs Moves to IHFC’s Hamilton Wing

    for October High Point Market


    High Point, N.C. (October 8, 2013) – Bedroom importer John Boyd Designs is moving to a new permanent showroom in the IHFC for the Oct. 19-24 High Point Market.


    The company will exhibit in a 1,700-square-foot showroom in the IHFC’s Hamilton wing, Space 1114. It had been showing in the Profit Center at 156 S. Main St.


    “The Hamilton wing of the IHFC will be a much better fit for us,” said Tom Carscaden, vice president of sales and marketing for John Boyd Designs. “Our line is aimed at the middle of the market, and the IHFC attracts all the retailers we do business with — or want to do business with—so this new location will make us much easier to shop.”


    In its new showroom this market, John Boyd Designs will feature three popular collections: Notting Hill, a traditional group in poplar with a painted finish and beadboard panel treatments; Outer Banks, a multicolored painted design, also in poplar, with a cottage feel; and Cape May, a simple, elegant beach-inspired design in a light Drift finish with louvered insets. Each group features both master and youth bedroom configurations.


    Construction details include the use of solid-wood dovetailed drawers and side-mounted, ball-bearing glides. The line also features an ArmorTec protective top coat that shields surfaces from scratches and wear.


    Based in Los Angeles, John Boyd Designs was founded in 1981 by John Boyd. The company today is a division of Kinfine, an importer of occasional and accent furniture based in China.


    John Boyd Designs specializes in high-quality, value-priced bedroom, with all collections carried in stock with 48-hour shipping from its Los Angeles warehouse.


    “Our attention to quality and service sets us apart from other importers,” said Carscaden. “We focus on a core lineup of best-selling collections backed by a level of service that is second to none.”


    “John Boyd Designs adds another strong source to the IHFC’s lineup,” said Julie Messner, vice president of leasing for International Market Centers. “We’re excited that they’ve made the commitment to a new showroom in the Hamilton wing.”
