Furniture World News on

Habersham announced that it is expanding its showroom space to unveil a new high-end upholstery collection during the Spring 2008 High Point Market, April 7-13. Titled “Habersham Feathers,” the luxurious new collection represents the next growth phase for the furniture manufacturer’s whole home interior design concept – the Habersham Home. Bringing together a rich array of fabrics, beautiful correlates and trims designed to complement Habersham’s hand-finished furniture and custom cabinetry, the upholstery introduction will include sofas, chairs, ottomans, sectionals and other accents that will be featured in Habersham’s High Point showroom – Market Square, MS—142 and a new space on the mezzanine level, M-45. “Habersham has been a key tenant of Market Square since it opened as a wholesale trade building in 1983, and we have worked with them to expand their space as they have grown,” said Tom Mitchell, senior vice president and general manager of Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc. “We are thrilled to see them expand their product line once again.” The licensed Habersham Feathers collection now joins the company’s full range of residential furniture designs, custom kitchen and bath custom cabinetry capabilities and unlimited finish options to create a rich Grand European or Grand American lifestyle that flows seamlessly throughout the entire home. This new upholstery line is part of the Habersham Home complete home design concept, first launched in 2005, which has attracted the attention of builders, interior designers, retailers and affluent home owners around the country. “Upholstery was the next logical step for Habersham,” explains Habersham President Matt Eddy. “We’re using only the finest fabrics and superior construction techniques to create upholstery that provides the perfect finishing touch to our Grand European and Grand American Casual lifestyles. And, upholstery makes Habersham an even more designer-friendly line to work with. Together with the many custom options and unlimited finishes we now offer, this versatile selection of furniture, cabinetry and upholstery ensures that designers and dealers can help their clients create a Habersham Home design that reflects their own sense of style.” The initial Habersham Feathers Collection will feature a versatile selection of pieces crafted in size and design to work with Habersham’s grand scale case goods. Extremely designer-friendly, all pieces in the new collection can be custom-sized and designed to fit any application. In addition, COM service is also available. Habersham Feathers will feature hundreds of high-end fabrics, with beautiful correlates and exquisite trims. A number of hand-painted motifs and sofa jewelry will also be part of the introductory line-up.
