Furniture World News on

The Bernice Bienenstock Furniture Library announced that recent renovations to the second floor will be showcased at the October 2011 High Point Furniture Market. 

"With the expertise of Freeman Kennett Architects High Point," said Charles Sutton, President of the Library's Board of Directors, "the NC Furniture Library has been able to create a large meeting room to be used by the furniture and design industries.  This is a great opportunity for colleges and universities such as High Point University, University of North Carolina - Greensboro, Randolph Community College and many others to utilize this space for lectures and class research. 

"The Library also invites other industry organizations to take advantage of this space for conferences and meetings."

For convenience, the renovations included updating research areas and permanent collection placement as well as creating a more inviting book sale space.  These changes will better serve designers, students, professors and scholars.  

The Library and its staff will host tours and greet the industry during the High Point show starting on October 22, 2011.
