Furniture Brands International announced it will exhibit how fashion has influenced nine of their brands in 2012 by showcasing items in a fashion-runway inspired display during High Point Market.
“Many great runway looks ultimately translate into fabulous furnishings,” said Jim Brenner, Chief Marketing Officer of Furniture Brands. “We love that the High Point Market’s campaign makes Market feel even more like our version of Fashion Week.” The company will display a piece from nine of the company’s brands, together in the IHFC, calling out fashion inspired materials and design. In homage to the High Point Market’s Style Spotters program, Furniture Brands is encouraging writers, editors and bloggers to tweet photos of the fashion-inspired pieces on Twitter (using hash tag #FBRUNWAY) or to post photos on individual design blog pages or Facebook.
Pieces will be displayed in a “runway show” platform formation outside the Drexel Heritage and Thomasville showrooms on the 8th Floor of the IHFC during High Point Market week. An invitation only cocktail party is being held for the press to view the pieces.
