High Point Market 2017

High Point, North Carolina,  is known for its furniture and textiles manufacturing. The city is sometimes referred to as the "Home Furnishings Capital of the World."

 

The semi-annual High Point Furniture Market that attracts 100,000 exhibitors and buyers from around the world. It is the largest furniture and furnishings industry event in the world.

Approximately 12,000,000 square feet (1,100,000 m2) of showroom space is used by 2300 exhibitors, in 188 separate buildings. Over 100 countries are represented by both vendors and visitors.

 

Of course, we wanted to be part of this exciting event to proudly introduce our speciality paint finishes.

Overwhelmed by the amazing reactions to Pure & Original paints

We were overwhelmed by the variety of visitors, coming from so many different regions, looking out for new items on the home furnishings market and we were very grateful for all the sweet reactions to our colour palette and the big samples of our most niche paint lines; Fresco lime-paint and Marrakech Walls.

 

A fortunate coincident was that the annual IDAL event (International Decorative Artisans League) was taking place at the same time.

After being discovered by a few decorative painters, they asked if it was possible to arrange a demo? Sure thing!

 

So we did..a tad nervous, since quite a big group of top painters attended and we had to arrange this demo last minute. 

The fact that the Pure & Original lime finishes are so much easier to apply than the traditional Venetian Plasters, plus the broad range of possibilities seemed to impress them the most.

We are looking forward to collaborating with many new painters, designers, architects and definitely want to be part of this event again in 2018!
