A Sneak Peek Into Our New Home
High Point, N.C. is where design trends start, leaders are born, and friends become family. Our new home will be a symbol of the Home Furnishings Capital of the World where the industry gathers, where we tell out story and preserve our past, where we inspire future generations.
Our Place to Connect
Imagine a powerful space where industry friends, family, and colleagues gather. Here, leaders of today and tomorrow will network, share ideas and chart a dynamic future for home furnishings. Our new home will feature a mix of places for hosting private or industry events, with large boardroom and smaller meeting spaces. During Market, we’ll provide a concierge service for light office needs. Or, marketgoers can stop by to relax with light snacks and to meet friends for a cocktail.
our place to honor
The great entrepreneurs and leaders who built our industry deserve a permanent memorialization. The Hall of Fame will celebrate and recognize inducted members through interactive and engaging exhibits and videos. Here, emerging leaders will meet industry giants to benefit from their wisdom as they walk through their life experiences.
our place to discover
Visitors will explore the world of home fashion and design through our Discovery Center. Interactive areas will challenge and entertain adults and children with hands-on demonstrations, workshops, and experiential learning activities, and special events. Here, visitors will be able to explore the world of home fashion and designing your home.
our place to preserve
Nowhere in the U.S. is there a written history of our industry. The Hall of Fame is changing that by housing our growing collection of original documents, artifacts, books, and oral histories. This is where we can piece together our voices and tell our unique story.
Visitors will be able to experience our rich past through a series of permanent and temporary exhibits that will explore everything from woodworking shops in the 1800s to ancient Italian pottery and oriental rugs.
Telling Our Story to the world
A highlight of the Hall of Fame will be a world-class video documenting the history of our $110 billion industry and highlighting the great men and women who built it. As told through the eyes of our greatest contributors and industry leaders, it will share the inside stories of enduring excellence, innovation and creativity, and superior accomplishments. The video will debut online and serve as the definitive introduction to a fast-paced industry driven by a fascinating combination of style, workmanship and technology. The Hall of Fame will take the lead role in inviting consumers and industry newcomers alike to step inside a highly complex culture – richly personal and entrepreneurial, local yet fully global, as familiar as your own home and yet virtually unknown as a preferred career opportunity. Available to the industry as a premier onboarding tool, the most prestigious donors will be guaranteed visibility on the video and take their rightful place as leaders on the digital world stage.
join the leaders circle
Our new home will launch the Leaders Circle, the most prestigious gathering of leaders in our industry. Leaders Circle members will gain access to exclusive activities to stay abreast of the latest business trends and to connect with other powerful influencers. They also will receive special privileges and preferred admittance to Hall of Fame events. As the organization of leaders, the Hall of Fame Leaders Circle will represent a hotbed for peer-to-peer discussion, a training ground for promising Future Leaders and a platform for conversation among inducted Members of the Hall of Fame, Future Leaders and our most generous donors.
