HFI Brands will also “reinvent” the Peoploungers collection for today’s consumer with the idea that “everyone loves to lounge.”
 
“The new approach will encompass all types of lounging for all types of people,” said Steve Dinkins, president of Peoploungers.  “The new Peoploungers brand is built around the concept that everyone enjoys comfort and style, and there is demand in the market for a more refreshing, fashion-forward style related to all categories of seating.
 
“From the teenagers’ need for a great gaming chair to the young adult moving into their first apartment, the new Peoploungers collection will appeal to a broad segment of today’s consumers,” Dinkins added.  “The line will fill some important voids in the market while attracting anyone with a need for great design and value.”
 
This October in High Point, Market Square, #390, Peoploungers will introduce more than 200 designs that offer a great range of style within their comfort seating and accent furniture options. The new product offering will include recliners, home theater seating, stationary leather, sleep sofas, a collection of slip covered upholstery, plus occasional and accent furniture.
 
“Peoploungers has taken the trends seen in the market and is filling the consumers’ needs for lounging for all generations,” says Britt Albright, senior vice president of creative for HFI Brands. “The collection will use fresh fabrics, versatile slipcovers, creative patchwork collages and accent pillows to add flavor, color and individual personality to a leather assortment.”
 
Through HFI Brands, Peoploungers has access to a renowned and talented design team, as well as to Outlook International, one of the most respected sources for quality control, sourcing and manufacturing production management worldwide.
