Material World New York To Feature Home Furnishings Showcase In September

Furniture World News on

Building upon the successful debut of the Home Furnishings Showcase during the March 2005 edition of Material World Miami Beach, Urban Expositions will feature a Home Furnishings Showcase during the inaugural Material World New York event, September 28-30, 2005 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Offering a variety of fabric, leather, trim and service resources for home furnishings industry members, this showcase complements Material World New York's extensive selection of apparel resources and firmly establishes it as the one-stop global resource for sourcing, fabric, trim and trends. The Material World New York Home Furnishings Showcase will feature a variety of mills, converters, leather and trimming manufacturers showcasing product in a wide variety of categories, including cottons, chenille, chintzes, velvets, faux fabrics, flocks, jacquards, leather, sheeting, tapestries and more. Target attendees for Material World's Home Furnishings section include upholstery manufacturers, retailers, interior designers, jobbers and over-the- counter businesses. "New York is not only the capital of fashion for apparel, but also for home furnishings," says Tim von Gal, executive vice president, Urban Expositions, producers and managers of Material World New York. "With the depth of home furnishing design leaders in New York, adding home furnishings fabrics to our product offerings only makes sense; many of our current exhibitors who already serve the home furnishings market will benefit from expanded sales opportunities and it will also give attendees the opportunity to explore the newest introductions and get an inside look at breaking apparel colors, trends, textures and fabrics, which currently influence home furnishing trend directions." As an added benefit for attendees, the Home Furnishings section will also feature a special trend and color pavilion highlighting fabric and resources from many exhibiting companies. Urban Expositions and the American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) announced the launch of the new fall edition of Material World New York earlier this year in response to increasing industry demand for a global fabric, trend and sourcing event in the New York marketplace. Urban Expositions and the AAFA will build upon the steady growth and solid international reputation of the Material World Miami Beach event to ensure the success of the New York exhibition. The Home Furnishings Showcase is just one of many other products and service highlights for the New York edition, including: Show Info: For exhibitor or attendee information on Material World New York, call 1.800.318.2238 or 678.285.3976.
