Globe Manufacturer Introduces Frank Lloyd Wright Collection In High Point

Furniture World News on

The world’s leading globe producer, Replogle Globes, Inc., announced the introduction of its Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® product line at the Fall High Point Market Show, October 20-26. Through an exclusive licensing partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, the globes have been adapted from select Wright drawings and concepts, chosen by Replogle and authorized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. “Each globe is steeped in history -- provocative representations of Americana, while communicating the universal appeal of Wright’s work,” says Bob Mitchell, Replogle’s North American sales manager. “Wright’s style is as much contemporary as it is traditional, fitting into almost any design scheme. Furthering this breadth of possibilities, the globes in this collection are both large enough to serve as a room’s focal point, and small enough to serve as decorative accent pieces, while remaining functional and inspirational.” Anticipating strong sales in the U.S. and Canada’s high-end specialty markets, Replogle offers dealers and retailers both on-site and direct-to-customer drop-ship ordering for the Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® Globes.
