North Carolina-Furniture Market-May 29

North Carolina People, Places, and Things-May 29

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special.

High Point is home to a trade show called the Furniture Market which is the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world, bringing more than 85,000 people to High Point every six months.

Serious retail home furnishings buyers can be found in High Point twice a year looking to get deals for their businesses.

Current Demographics
180 Buildings
11.5 Million Square Feet of Showspace
75,000 Attendees Each Market
More Than 2000 Exhibitors
100+ Countries Represented
Tens of Thousands of New Product Introductions
Approximately 10% of Attendees Are International

High Point is not the only furniture destination in North Carolina you also can go to Hickory. Great link below gives great history of Hickory’s ties to furniture which go back to early part of 20th century.

Today, Hickory Furniture Mart’s expansive complex is comprised of four-levels housing nearly a hundred factory outlets, stores, and galleries, representing over a 1000 premier manufacturers.


In addition to the acres of professionally decorated furniture showrooms, the Mart complex offers an on-site pet friendly hotel as well as a gourmet café, coffeehouse gallery with Wi-Fi internet access and a wine gallery, all locally owned. The manufacturers represented throughout the Mart include every major quality domestic manufacturer as well as accessories, fabrics, imports, lighting, rugs, wall coverings and other home furnishings.

If you need furniture the Tar Heel State has you covered.
