Contemporary frame in Ultrasuede

Custom transitional and contemporary upholstery expert GBC Upholstery announced the introduction of the Gary George Designs Collection, a new retail-friendly contemporary upholstery line launching during the company’s inaugural High Point Market, in the 7th floor design wing of the IHFC building, space D-702, Oct. 16 - 21.
Gary George, founder and CEO for the company, brings his unique point of view and over 25 years of custom upholstered furniture production experience, which includes high-profile residential and commercial projects in deluxe locales.
Next month, a 2100 square foot showroom will highlight designs by Market newcomer Gary George, as well as those by two of the industry’s most celebrated modern and contemporary furniture designer icons, Stanley Jay Friedman and M. Fillmore Harty.
“Progressive styling with its modern edginess has a myth of hardness within the designs,” said George. “Creating glamorous comfortable upholstery is paramount to my collection.”
Ten upholstered groups plus occasional seating are planned and will feature sofas, sectionals, lounge chairs, ottomans, dining chairs and barstools.  A wide range of in-stock covers include the perennially popular Ultrasuede®. "Ultrasuede lends itself toward our styling and for this reason was one of the first fabrics to be put into our line,” added George. “Ultrasuede has a great color range which makes for an exciting showroom presentation."
Orders for the new offering ship within 30 working days, and additional custom capabilities around frame sizes, C.O.M., and exclusive styling are available, according to Jerry Greenblatt VP of Sales and Marketing for Gary George Designs. “We are capitalizing on the need for a new middle to upper-end fabric-based, contemporary upholstery resource in the residential retail segment,” he said, adding, “This is a fresh look for the marketplace, filling the niche of special order upholstery proudly made in the USA.”
Gary George Designs is a member of the Contemporary Design Group (CDG).
