Excelsior Designs Partners in IHFC® Renovation

Furniture World News on

Excelsior Designs, well-known for striking, artistic contemporary furniture designs, assisted the International Home Furnishings Center® (IHFC) with their recent building renovation by providing furnishings for the executive office lobby and reception area. The multi-million dollar construction project includes the complete transformation of the interior and exterior of the Commerce Street entrance. The interior restoration was finished just in time for the October High Point Market, which begins Monday, October 16. The building’s exterior is set to be completed in April 2007, and will tie into the newly-expanded transportation terminal. Tom Loney, vice president leasing/marketing with the IHFC stated, “The new space is a clean, contemporary presentation. Terrazzo floors, stainless steel, marble, and crotch mahogany veneers are some of the elements used that combine flawlessly to create a true contemporary flavor.” He adds, “We wanted to extend that look for our new offices and reception area and believed we already had the number one resource in our building to provide the distinctive products, finishes, and quality we required. We were thrilled to have Excelsior Designs work with us on this project. The eight pieces chosen for our lobby are absolutely beautiful and create an elegant, inviting environment, yet still make a classic statement.” The new seating arrangement consisting of upholstery and occasional items is from the Nicole Miller Collection, a highly successful October 2005 introduction designed by famed fashion designer Nicole Miller. Exclusively produced by Excelsior Designs, the Nicole Miller Collection features over 70 pieces of living, dining, and bedroom furniture. The contemporary styling features sleek European construction mixed throughout with Miller’s classic color and design aesthetic. Exotic veneers, brushed stainless steel, and exclusive fabrics are all part of this stunning collection. Steven Kayne, president of Excelsior Designs said, “We are pleased to have been chosen to participate in the renovation of this space. The overall image of the High Point Market is important to exhibitors as we strive to improve the shopping experience for our retailers.” About Excelsior Designs: Renowned for fine craftsmanship, exotic veneers, and exquisite finishes, the company produces Italian-made contemporary and transitional casegoods under the Excelsior Designs brand and upholstery by Casa Novalia® Leather. The Nicole Miller Collection produced exclusively by Excelsior Designs, debuted at retail in spring 2006.
