Furniture World News


Steelyard, long known as the premier platform through which professional interior designers and architects find and purchase to-the-trade goods, brings announced a slew of opportunities and events for April 2019 High Point Market.

Steelyard @ The Point
To kick off Market, Steelyard is welcoming all designers to The Point on Friday, April 5, for an afternoon of events created to help interior design professionals get the most from their Market experience. Throughout the afternoon, designers can check in to receive information on the newest and hottest designer-focused showrooms and products, as well as not-to-miss events, parties, seminars, and more. For the full schedule, visit hpmkt.steelyardaccess.com/the-point.

The Steelyard Trolley
Throughout Market, the Steelyard Trolley is scheduled to deliver designers to the most sought-after destinations, parties and panels.  But more than that, Trolley riders will receive special gifts, giveaways, and golden tickets to closed VIP events.  Industry personalities will be offering advice and insight during rides, and a bit of disco karaoke is on tap as well.  Riders can also score up to eight different exclusive Steelyard nail polish colors at stops along the now-famous Nail Polish Trail. Designers can find updated Trolley information and party locales on this specially-created Trolley site.

The Steelyard Designer’s Lounge at 200 Steele
The company’s beloved Steelyard Designer’s Lounge returns to the Market with an upgraded and expanded format in the 200 Steele building.  Design aficionados recognize 200 Steele as one of the preeminent destinations for luxury home furnishings products and manufacturers.  The Steelyard Designer’s Lounge, located on the light-filled second-floor mezzanine, is the designers’ destination to take meetings, relax, plug-in, enjoy a bite to eat or a sip a cocktail or simply recharge for more Market shopping.  Presented by Century Furniture, Highland House, Kindel Grand Rapids and Scarborough House. Details and lounge hours are available on hpmkt.steelyardaccess.com.

The Platform
Whether at The Point, on the Trolley or in the Lounge at 200 Steele, designers can explore Steelyard’s free online platform that makes more than 150 top brands available to professional designers and architects, all with direct to-the-manufacturer communication and purchasing.

About Steelyard: For 21 years, Steelyard (formerly TODL) has been the industry’s most comprehensive digital product resource serving the interior design trade. Of course, digital and search technology has changed a wee bit since 1997 when our visionary founder, Stacey Tiveron, scanned brand catalogs page-by-page onto the first Trade Only Design Library platform. But the need for a streamlined way to quickly view thousands of products has not changed, and every evolution of TODL/Steelyard--from site upgrades to rebranding to more site upgrades--has been designed to create the most efficient way to search and organize products in a password- protected, wholesale environment. At Steelyard, we’re here to connect the industry’s best brands and trade programs with design professionals like you. Whether shopping the go-to giants or hunting for bespoke & emerging artisans, we put them all at the designer’s fingertips with a single login. For more information, visit Steelyard.
