Design & Performance Start Here As today’s consumers demand more from their home furnishings, the value of Sunbrella’s performance fabrics is undeniable. Consumers are discovering they don’t have to compromise high-end design to get great-performing fabrics, nor sacrifice high-performance for sophisticated design. Sunbrella upholstery fabrics offer proven durability, stain resistance, unmatched cleanability, and a soft touch. While neutrals used to dominate—and still play a major role in design—consumers are now more open to colors and patterns. As for trends, we’re seeing an interest in mixing opposing forces—bright with muted and shiny with matte—for a curated look. Our solution-dyed process is what makes Sunbrella fade-proof, easy-care and bleachcleanable. Sunbrella is not dyed in the conventional sense—in fact, we do not use dyes at all. Instead, we mix highly UV-resistant pigments in before the fibers are constructed. The fibers are then cut, baled, blended, spun into yarn and woven into fabric. The color in Sunbrella fabrics is embedded deep inside each and every fiber, which is why you can safely use bleach on stubborn stains. Most fabrics are like a radish, with color only on the outside. Sunbrella’s color is embedded in the fabric, so more like a carrot, the color runs all the way through. Since 1961, Sunbrella has built a reputation based on quality. As a family-owned, 136-yearold company, Glen Raven is focused on our customers’ product and service needs. No one is more willing to support the retailer and furniture manufacturer to get the message to consumers at retail—driving sales and growing everyone’s business. At Glen Raven, we think long-term by delivering premium products backed by a relentless pursuit of quality and comprehensive service.

DESIGN OF THE TIMES

As the fashion element in interiors, home textiles play a vital role in today’s home décor. They imbue a space with personality and help set the tone and style. As the industry responds to consumers’ ever-changing preferences, offering just the right colors, patterns and textures is more important than ever. Here’s a look at what’s in demand now and what’s on its way.

COLOR STORY Variable by nature, trends in color and pattern move in cycles. The challenge to designers, manufacturers and suppliers is to stay abreast of the influences and directions as they evolve.

Welcomed by all, color is back in a big way. “People are tired of beige and gray and neutrals,” says Jason Oliver Nixon, co-founder of Madcap Cottage. “Putting a floral on the sofa is OK.” Blue continues to be the go-to color for consumers. “Blue is always there, what changes is the personality and we sort of go back and forth between warm and cool blues,” says Michelle Lamb, editorial director of The Trend Curve. “What we’re seeing is a lot of yellow casts, so think about shades that look watery or ocean-like—turquoise, spa blue, and sea breeze.” Warmer blues are also taking shape in darker values as well, explains Lamb. “We’ll see peacock, petrol and teals.” Peacock is trending as both a color and a motif, she says. Blues with depth and character are in demand at Love Home Fabrics, says brand manager Gregory Tack. “Before, blues were very soft, now they are deep, not flashy.” While greens drift in and out of the top tier of popularity, yellow-based greens are holding steady. “Greens have been a factor now for over a year and I believe that we’ll see more of them,” says Lamb.

Look for the continued growth of yellow-based greens in home textiles in the coming year. Sofa from The MT Company.

“We’re still passionate about green and yellow, and our third collection with Robert Allen includes new colorways like cherry,” says Nixon. “Green is very in this year, it’s a darker almost jewel green, rich and mossy,” says Tack. “We saw a lot of green when we went to Salone del Mobile Milan in May, and we look to Europe for the trends.” With gray firmly entrenched at retail, browns are the next statement-makers, says Lamb. “One of the reasons I feel there is such significance in warmth— we’ve seen it in warm blues, warm purples, and greens on the warm side—is because of the resurgence of brown,” she explains. Warm metallic finishes such as gold and bronze are also responsible for this yellow-cast on the color wheel. “The warmth of gold metallic really has an influence, it’s become significant in the last year. This is at least year two for gold, and next year will be year three. As for what will come after it, my prediction is bronze because of the rising popularity of browns. We’ve had some really significant warming influences on the palette.” Straight from the fashion runway, purple is another emerging shade in home fashion, says Lamb. “I’m really bullish on purple, I like purple on the warm side (influenced by more red than blue) and I see that on the apparel side.” “Color in textiles can make or break a product,” says textile and apparel stylist Cathy Valent of CeCe Design Group, whose work looks at the connection between fabric, color and human behavior. “Successful textile producers are researchers of the sociological influences affecting today’s consumers.” Warm metallic finishes and the return of brown signals a warming of today’s textile color palette, as seen here in the monterey sled lounge chair from Badgley Mischka Home.

PATTERN PLAY While color reigns, pattern provides the visual interest to today’s textiles. From tropical patterns and oversized leaf motifs to watercolor blossoms, flora is firmly in fashion. Geometrics and graphic prints also continue to perform well. “Prints and patterns are essential for us,” says Nixon of Madcap Cottage, where mixing pattern and scale is an art form. “We’re offering a fresh take on chintz and florals. We are very big on looking to the past to move the needle forward.” Painterly and watercolor-inspired techniques have given new life to traditional floral patterns. “Currently, we are selling a lot of paisleys and watercolor effects in traditional layouts such as Jacobean, medallion and tiles,” says Shreenie Vasan, partner and associate art director at Tana Bana design studio. “We’ve seen a lot of reasons for florals to come back, one of them was the introduction of watercolor


DESIGN OF THE TIMES

techniques in surface design; they’re not new, but they make florals look fabulous,” says Lamb. She also credits digital printing for the growing popularity of florals. “The detail and color is remarkable, almost as though you could fall right into those floral patterns.” Looking to 2018, crochet and lace patterns and blackand-white rendered drawings will be increasingly popular, says Vasan. “With the unusual global climatic conditions, I see that patterns that are less seasonal-oriented and have more of a global look and reach are becoming a requirement.”

Wearing an on-trend shade of blue, Taylor King’s Allen settee features an Otomi tribal art pattern called “Piñata Batik” from Valdese Weavers.

Geometrics will continue to have a role, but with a twist that makes them softer, easier to live with, and more suitable for mainstream, predicts Lamb. “In the past, geometrics have been so bold and graphic. Going forward, I believe in geometrics that are perhaps more forgiving—a plaid might look fluid, a chevron pattern might be partially worn away, we may see more splotches than perfect dots.”

TARGETED INSPIRATION Variable by nature, trends in color and pattern move in cycles. The challenge to designers, manufacturers and suppliers is to stay abreast of the influences and directions as they evolve. “The hard part is interpreting what will be a trend and what will be a flop,” says Tack. “Overall, it’s important for the manufacturer to know their customer, their likes and dislikes,” says Valent. “This way the designer will be able to interpret a trend into a meaningful design for their consumer. This will help create the right product at the right time.” While travel, across the U.S. and abroad, inspires the MadCap Cottage aesthetic, staying on-trend isn’t the primary objective, says Nixon. “We don’t believe in trends. We want to give consumers the tools to bring their vision to life and create a home that feels special and doesn’t look exactly like a catalog. If we can deliver that surprise, delight and magic, then mission accomplished.” “Color, design and fashion is what sells overall,” says Tack. “We look to fashion to be ahead of the trend. If you want to be an innovator, you have to look outside our industry, look broader—which helps guide the industry’s direction.”

BLUE NOTES “Research has shown that blue is North America’s favorite color family,” says Michelle Lamb, editorial director of The Trend Curve. A perennial bestseller, the blue family remains relevant with a focus in the near future on warmer blues. Blue hues with a warm cast (yellow-based) are on the rise, while cooler blues (red-based) are declining. Here are the shades to look for according to Lamb: NAVY In the coming two years, most classic blue-andwhite color stories will feature navy. It also remains a core color for outdoor assortments. INDIGO The moodier cousin to navy blue, indigo will continue its rise through next year, and is the better dark-blue choice for trend assortments in 2018. TEAL A prime example of a warm blue, teal is wellpositioned for continued growth. PEACOCK Closely related to teal, but with less green in it, peacock is enjoying a boost from returning peacock bird motifs in home goods. It fits well with the warming trend for blues and is on the trend radar for this year and next. AQUAMARINE A mid-tone blue with a slight tinge of yellow, aqua acts as a bridge between teal and even warmer blues. AEGEAN Yellow’s influence will continue to grow over the coming year, and trend assortments will reflect colors like Aegean that represent the warmer side of blue. Ocean-inspired colors, like the one shown here in the Bel Air lamp from Bradburn Home, continue to be popular.

Louise’s

Sources of inspiration: Travel primarily. I also love Instagram for seeing what creative people all over the world are doing in all types of mediums, it is a great sharing platform.

Fave colors or color combinations:

Creative Director for Eastern Accents, Louise Traficanti finds inspiration everywhere she looks, even in the most unlikely of places. Today, she guides the creative vision for a trend-setter in soft home fashions. Born in Ireland, Traficanti went to the National College of Art and Design and later emigrated to the U.S. She’s a long-time resident of Chicago, and she really loves Midwesterners—the proof being she married one! Traficanti has been with Eastern Accents for the last 18 years, and was a key part of the recent renovation of Pandora’s Manor—a sprawling Colonial Revival in High Point, N.C. turned boutique hotel. “I feel so lucky to work with such a talented team that strives to make homes as beautiful as they can be,” she says. “It has been an unbelievable creative, educational and inspirational journey.”

My favorite has to be navy—clean, classic and the perfect complement to so many other colors. I also love orange, chartreuse and pink; a little pop of those colors goes a long way.

Favorite quote or words of wisdom: “Don’t waste time waiting for inspiration. Begin and inspiration will find you.” – H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Vacation destination: Anywhere with mountains: I love the scale, the wildlife, clear air and vegetation. Mountains are humbling. I tend to select vacations where we can stay and hike in the mountains. My favorite vacation ever has to be South Africa.

Enjoy concerts, plays or movies: I love plays. Just like with reading books, getting pulled into another world temporarily is pretty cool.

Dream project or collaboration: I am so fortunate to say that working at Eastern Accents has allowed me to work on the most amazing projects, so I have already fulfilled many of those dream projects. Working on Pandora’s Manor and with Barclay Butera, Thom Filicia and Celerie Kemble is so cool—I mean really, what else could top that?

Favorite coffee table/design book: I love all of Tricia Guild’s design books. They are so inspiring and her color is so saturated, I love to sit and just look through them. Her newest one, Paintbox, is out so I just ordered that.

Vice or indulgence: Sitting on our back deck amidst beautiful towering trees and reading. Perfection!

Zack’s

Sources of inspiration: Travel. I spend much of my time visiting our dealers and designers across the country. I live in awe of the creativity added to our classic-made-current silhouettes by our visionary customers.

A native of North Carolina and graduate of Wake Forest University, Zack Taylor’s home furnishings roots run deep. The President of Wesley Hall since 2013, Taylor spent 21 years at Valdese Weavers, lastly serving as Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “I have a genuine love for this industry and the amazing relationships I have forged through my many years in it,” he says. Always in search of inspiration, Taylor finds it all around. “I always take time to study the ‘Madison Avenue’ of whatever city I awaken in. Boutiques are very leading-edge in display and coloration.” He also credits his team with providing inspiration. “Wesley Hall’s creative gurus, Amy Huff and Darrell Fulbright, inspire me each and every day. They lend amazing freshness, history and perspective to our journey.” When it comes to great design, Taylor enjoys pushing the limits. “I love seeing a product, space, process, or experience reimagined. Digging in deep to ascertain what works and is worthy of celebration versus what needs to be relegated to the past is a genuine passion. Whether in my career or in my extra-curricular involvements, I often find myself asking those questions and making plans from them.”

Quote or words of wisdom: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” – Henry Ford. Even though there are lingering questions about the accuracy of this quote, I find it inspiring for those of us trying to live ahead of the curve.

Vacation destination: No question: the mountains of North Carolina.

Book or kindle: Being an English Lit major, I am a book guy. They do such a better job of collecting dust on my bedside table. Plus, you can scribble middle-of-the-night to-dos on them. Anything electronic feels like work to me.

Enjoy concerts, plays or movies: Any and all, but I prefer long dinners with family and/or friends. I am a people junkie. I don’t gravitate towards anything that stops me from talking, listening or moving.

Fave app: Waze, OpenTable and Uber. One ensures that I can find a spot, one sets the stage for whatever needs to happen, and the last gets me home after making the most of it!

Favorite coffee table/design book: It is always changing. There is always one sitting on the ottoman in my study in front of my favorite chair; the current one is “YOUNG BRIDES, OLD TREASURES, MACEDONIAN EMBROIDERED DRESS.” It is a textile junkie’s dream. The deck of cards atop the book is a constant.

Vice or indulgence: Fever Tree club soda with a splash of Titos. Admittedly, it might be the other way around.

Favorite pastime: Making plans. I am always on the move and anxious to make the most of what’s next. ITA Showtime® Market • December 3-6, 2017

STYLE MAKER

Jennifer’s Sources of inspiration: I’m inspired by Showtime! Seeing so much product in a condensed period of time really brings what is happening in the marketplace to life. Also, shelter magazines and nature. I love organic shapes and color combinations. As Head Fabric Buyer for Calico, Jennifer Mayer knows a little something about fabric. Since 2016, she has been leading the fabric merchandising department of Calico, taking them to new heights with additions such as exclusive designer collections and a major expansion into performance fabrics. She has been with Calico—the nation’s largest specialty retailer of decorative fabrics—since 2004. “I want to help our customers and sales associates design the whole room. I make my fabric selections with that in mind,” says Mayer. “I’m always thinking about how the fabric will ultimately be used in the home.” After working at the store level, Mayer has a unique perspective. “People trust us with projects that will be in their homes. Those relationships are so important. And it all starts with the fabrics—finding the customer’s inspiration, then helping them choose the right fabric for the project and understand how the finished product will look.”

Fave colors or color combinations: If I have to pick favorites, I would say blues in all shades from aqua to indigo. I also love when they’re combined with warmer colors like red, terracotta or coral.

Favorite quote or words of wisdom: “Trust your gut.” – My parents.

Vacation destination: Northern Michigan’s Great Lakes and Santa Fe.

REVOLUTION Consumer demand for customized products and faster delivery has digital textile printing poised for continued growth By Trisha McBride Ferguson

As digital textile printing technology advances, the potential for designers, buyers and manufacturers is virtually unlimited. Once considered too slow and too expensive, today’s digital printing equipment now rivals that of traditional screen printing, with upper-end equipment capable of printing 50 yards per minute. The U.S. digital textile market is the fifth largest worldwide, with more than 51 million square meters of fabric produced annually (about 5.4 percent of world production capacity), according to WTiN, Messe Frankfurt’s market intelligence partner. “The U.S. has been slower to adapt than other parts of the world,” says Mark Sawchak, founder and CEO of Expand Systems. “But, we’re seeing more movement in the last few months.”

At the Design2Print division of Design Works International, creative projects run the gamut from the fashion runway to major motion pictures such as Spiderman II. Working with designers in the apparel and home industries, the company has digitally printed fabrics for applications ranging from Elvis’ Graceland to Rihanna’s costumes to scenery for Cirque du Soleil’s “O” show. The company’s full-service design studio caters to artistry. “We understand the process, and artistically we hold their hand,” says Fire. “Our studio is staffed with talented people doing extraordinary things.”

SMART SAMPLING Digital printing is proving its worth as designers across industries create samples, experiment with colorways and produce prototypes of their designs before going into full-scale production. “The cost of producing one yard is the same as producing 10,000 yards,” says Sawchak. “It used to be the breakpoint [for traditional vs. digital printing] was about 200 yards, and now it’s closer to 2,000.” Low minimums keep costs down, helping designers bring their visions to life. “We see students, entrepreneurs, apparel designers, interior designers, and fabric designers getting the opportunity to create things they couldn’t have before,” says Fire. “We’ve worked on every kind of soft product–just when we think we’ve seen it all, there’s something new.”

Most fabrics can be printed on digitally. The fabric type determines the ink technology Pigments

“As far as your imagination can take you, wherever you want to go—that’s where digital can take you,” explains Nancy Fire, creative director at Design Works International. “The possibilities are limitless. We create things not currently in the market.”

COMPATI BILITY

Sublimation/ Disperse Dye

Unlike traditional screen printing, designers aren’t limited to just a few ink colors. “With digital, you can create a design with thousands of colors,” says Sawchak. The result is rich, life-like image capabilities with amazing depth of color.

The flirt chair by Hancock & Moore is upholstered in an embossed tiger-print leather.

Stylish Distressed leathers, like the one shown here from Palliser, are at the top of consumers’ wish lists.

Leather’s latest looks are colorful, distinctive and anything but boring By Jason Schneider

ITA Showtime® Market • December 3-6, 2017

SHOWTIME® FEATURE

The smoky taupe pearl suede seat of Caracole’s It’s All Greek To Me Chair features a heat-transferred metallic pattern inspired by fizzing champagne bubbles.

Leather has always been a classic design choice. From chesterfield sofas to motion recliners, it’s one of America’s favorite cover choices. And now, with fashion-forward leathers available in exciting new colors, patterns and finishes, it’s an option that transcends the traditional. “We’re seeing experimentation with color, texture, and sheen in leather,” says Melissa Hlushko, category manager of stationary furniture at Palliser. “This trend lends itself towards updated, on-trend, contemporary colors, including pastels, jewel tones, grays, and various tones of blue.”

Pebbled leather in a combination of spa blue and champagne distinguishes the Adler chair by Hancock & Moore.

Palliser is launching a series of on-trend leather colors later this year, says Hlushko. “Leathers in bold-colored jewel tones as well as soft pastels … we’re also bringing ‘Millennial Pink’ to leather, a color we’ve seen have a great influence on interior design and fashion trends, and a color that is predicted to be strong for the next few years as well.” Joe Franck, vice president of Carroll Leather, says blues have been gaining momentum for the last six months. “Browns and grays are still the hot colors,” he adds. PHOTO CREDIT: Grays are among the best-sellers at Anthem Leather Palliser. “Consumer sales trends flow back and forth from warm to cool tones,” says Hlushko. “Both warm and cool grays have become a staple in our leather lines, as they have the flexibility to appear contemporary or casual, and sell well on both stationary and motion products.”

The velvety seat of Caracole’s Finesse chair adds shimmer to a room with its watermarked, champagne-gold metallic, laser-cut leather.

www.Showtime-Market.com

“I believe the popularity of gray tones are a result of the younger generations,” says Franck. “It’s a cool color and you see it widely used in upscale, nontraditional furniture stores that these buyers shop at. I think this merchandising helps drive sales in the gray tones.” In addition to grays, pastels are also growing in popularity among younger buyers. “Younger age groups tend to be more open with color choices, as they begin to create a space that represents and expresses who they are,” says Hlushko. “Soft pastels are being used as neutrals, as consumers become less afraid of an overall color on their sofa.”


STYLISH SKINS

It isn’t just color that’s driving renewed interest in leather. Textures are evolving, too. Franck says his company has a large selection of distressed leathers. “Wax crackle and hand-worked leathers are the most popular today,” he says. “Distressed ‘performance’ leathers are also a rising category for us. The distressed leather category is a very important part of our business.” Palliser’s Hlushko sees these leathers selling in rustic and natural colors. “Tan, copper, and camel look great on distressed leathers PHOTO CREDIT: with an aged character made JBS Couros possible through hand-buffing, waxes, and oils,” she says. “Leather is a timeless look, and mineral or earth tones in leather upholstery prove to be a great base for several design tastes.” Embossed, metallic, and specialty leathers are other fresh options that add interest to furniture and accessories, and help dress a room. “At Caracole, we

PHOTO CREDIT: Carroll Leather

create furnishings that are considered to be ‘jewelry for the home,’ so specialty leathers are a great fit for us,” says Tim O’Hare, vice president of creative merchandising. “As we develop our products, we look for materials that add a bit of sparkle to a room while complementing our luxurious finishes. We incorporate innovative leathers with unique patterns, textures, and metallics to add glamour and elegance to our distinctive furnishings.”

THE SUSTAINABLE STORY While durability has long been one of the most important selling points for leather, sustainability is a close second. A byproduct of the beef industry, hides used for upholstery and other furniture products would otherwise be burned or destroyed. The upcycled material narrative appeals to consumers, particularly Millennials, as does the idea of buying furnishings that will outlast fabric models. “The desire for leather furnishings transcends demographics — consumers are looking for a natural, long-lasting, quality material that is easy to clean and maintain,” says Melissa Hlushko, of Palliser. “Among all demographics, it’s proven that leather is still a high-interest when shopping for upholstered furniture and is even ranked in the top requests that consumers have when interested in buying new furniture.” Yellow’s influence will continue to grow over the coming year, and trend assortments will reflect colors like Aegean that represent the warmer side of blue.

The future looks bright for fashionable, colorful embellishments By Trisha McBride Ferguson

ITA Showtime® Market • December 3-6, 2017

SHOWTIME® FEATURE

From embroidered denim jackets to outfits embellished with fringe, feathers and fur, trimmings are on-trend in today’s fashion. As global influences bring bold hues, multi-color patterns, and dimensional texture to trim design, industry insiders are optimistic the dynamic looks will gain momentum in home décor. JEWELRY TO A ROOM “I love using trims, they personalize a space,” says Eddie Ross, style director for themine.com. “I use them on everything—pillows, upholstery, tablecloths, and bed hangings.” A fan of layering trims, Ross recently created a statement look for a bedroom in the Traditional Home Hampton Showhouse by combining grosgrain ribbon with nailhead trim to define the leading edge of the drapery panels. “A room without trim is like wearing a black dress without jewelry,” he adds. “Without trim, a space never looks finished, it lacks personality.”

NEUTRAL TAPES RULE While exciting shapes, textures and colors are what inspire designers and consumers, it’s the basics that are retailing successfully. “Decorative tapes and cords are driving sales, but it’s mostly tapes,” says Susan Distel, director of fabric, accessory and trimmings for Calico Corners. Neutral color palettes are the perennial best-sellers, she adds. “Tapes are still very important,” says Sharon Cash, director of trimmings for Fabricut. “And neutrals, grays, blues, and aqua/mineral colors continue to dominate.”

“I definitely think neutral trims are the most popular, they are the safe thing to do,” says Ross. “Even with neutrals, you can layer trims. But for me, color is key.”

TRIM TALK

New looks in tapes are emerging, says Leyla Gans, creative director and co-owner of Classical Elements. “In the past, they have been constructed with an architectural look, the new fashion direction we’re seeing is more deconstructed, chunky, and textural.”

INSPIRING DIRECTIONS “We are beginning to see demand for wider tapes and some beaded and embroidered looks,” says Cash. Artisan-inspired styles are growing in popularity, she adds. “I think people are beginning to tire of what we’ve been seeing. So, it’s exciting to see multicolor trims again. There are some beautiful two-color trims and artisanal looks that make a statement and go so well with solid fabrics.” According to Distel, new shapes and styles are on the horizon. “We’re seeing a trend for bouillon and rope trim. Tassels, fringe and pom-poms haven’t gone mainstream though.”

“A room without trim is like wearing a black dress without jewelry ... it lacks personality.” “While we hadn’t been seeing much interest in brush and bouillon, we’re starting to get more interest and requests for older items because of what’s happening with trimmings and fashion,” says Cash. “Bouillon fringe is coming back,” agrees Ross. “Traditional-style trims are being used in a more relaxed way. It doesn’t have to be an old-fashioned, Miss Scarlett look—it can be chic and stylish and casually elegant.”

For color directions, look for shades straight off the runway, says Cash. “Pops of color from fashion—like lemon yellow and soft blush.” Also making their way from fashion to home furnishings are velvety textures. “Our Florence line has a modern Baroque feel with flocked velvet,” says Gans. “I’m excited because I love color and texture.”

EXHIBIT LOCATIONS MARKET SQUARE TEXTILE TOWER or “the tower” An easy walk from the Suites through Market Square takes you to the elevators for the tower, home to more than 40 of the larger mills and suppliers of leather and trim. Showtime appointments are common, but “walk-ins” can sometimes be accommodated.

SUITES AT MARKET SQUARE or “the suites” The Suites house more than 90 well-established suppliers in addition to smaller suppliers and new vendors. It is also the location for educational seminars, special exhibits, snacks, food, and social events featuring food and drink.

RESOURCE CENTER & HOME FASHIONS RESOURCE CENTER or “the resource centers” These outlying buildings are located just a few blocks away on Wrenn and Hamilton Streets, and house another 15+ suppliers. A free shuttle ride takes you to the buildings, and then it’s easy to walk between the HFRC (formerly the Fabric Center) – shown above –, RC, and surrounding venues.

MARKET IN HIGH POINT Ask anyone in the furniture industry about “Market,” and High Point Market is likely top of mind for most individuals. But insiders are quick to give equal time to the vital importance of Showtime—High Point’s “other” market. “Those of us in High Point are always eager to welcome Showtime,” remarks Tim Mabe, President and CEO of the High Point Convention and Visitors Bureau. “In fact, the economic impact of ITA exceeds $1.6 million each and every time exhibitors and buyers honor us with their presence.” Beyond the economic impact, however, High Point Market insiders agree that a vital interdependent relationship exists between the United States’ largest dedicated textile, leather, and trim show and the furniture segment. “A strong symbiotic relationship between High Point Market and Showtime is good for both events and the entire industry,” explains Tom Conley, President and CEO of High Point Market Authority. “We are always looking for ways to help all the players understand trends, source raw materials, and locate service providers.” Jerry Epperson, Founder and Managing Director of investment banking and research firm Mann, Armistead & Epperson, Ltd., echoes Conley’s sentiments. “I cannot imagine being an upholstery manufacturer in any segment and not going to the most important market to see the upcoming trends in pattern, colors, and textures,” he states. Mabe sums it up this way: “We view fabric selection as part of the design process. You can’t have one without the other.”
