    Default High Point Furniture Market Recap Spring 2019

    I covered a lot of ground at the Spring High Point Market and picked up a new line made of reclaimed Oak from barns in the Midwest. One of my long time friends in the industry that also owns a retail store said I needed to check it out, they fly out of her store. It's an Amish family doing the product and their company is Urban Barnwood. Has a unique look to it, upscale rustic, made in Ohio.

    I did not take many photos like I do on many of my trips, because frankly its a lot of work to edit and post them here in the forum, and I don't seem to get much feedback on them one way or the other....

    Here's a photo I did take, though. Two legends in the industry. Jimmy Moore of Hancock & Moore, one of two of the founding owners (now retired) and he's talking with designer Alan Price. Alan does much of the "cool" burnished leather furniture that you see at Hancock & Moore, but also does designs for other companies such as Sherrill, etc. Jimmy and I sat and chatted for about an hour together with Alan - fun times! Those two always leave me laughing....and Alan never ties his boots - I have a story about that.

    And here's one of Alan's new projects, I liked this chair enough to buy it. That's a leather belt strap imbedded into the top of the arm on the chair - very cool. And of course, it sits great.

    One thing I did set up with Hancock & Moore is an idea I had. So many new homes and ones built in the past few years have kitchen counters set up as focal points of the home. While there are plenty of barstools out there, not many are all that high quality and nice to sit in. So I am bringing in a display unit, using a custom table built by Century Furniture and I will have (6) different Hancock and Moore Counter Stools around it for customers to try out. I will be the first retailer in the country to do this as I know people want to actually sit in them prior to purchase. While I can't show them all, I will have half-a-dozen around this table, so it will give a nice selection. One of those six will be this new one that H&M came out with at this Market (another Alan Price design) - Model 196-30 (doesn't have a name yet):

    Other new items I purchased for the floor will show up here in separate postings, including some new recliners from Bradington Young that I liked, an upholstered Queen bed from Taylor King, some product from Hooker, etc.

    Duane, I appreciate you posting the details of your visits to High Point and all the photos that go with it. When I first discovered this forum I went back and read many of the older reports and enjoyed seeing a large number of H&M photos both (a) all in one place, and (b) photographed in a somewhat more natural style than you’ll find on the H&M website.

    Agree about the barstool. Is there a swivel available on that one?

    The Urban Barnwood pieces are nice. Surprised since they don’t exactly seem like your style, but I’m guessing they’ll be a hit with the younger crowd.

    Yes, all those barstools shown are swivels, they are just so well integrated into the frames that its not real apparent. I looked at a of of bar and counter stools at Market, trying to find some suitable that were less costly, but in the end I decided that the Hancock and Moore units so out-perform everything else I looked at that I decided to stay with them for the display. Others didn't seem as sturdy or as comfortable. In my own home the kitchen barstools are the most used pieces on a daily basis, even more so than the family room sofa and recliner and its smart to buy strong, sturdy units that will stand up over time.

    You are exactly right on the Urban Barnwood, that's for the younger generation. I'll be 65-years-old this year, but one of the keys is you have to try to have product that appeals to all age groups not necessarily what appeals to my taste.

    Is the Markle line of leather vegetable dyed? I am trying to find something that does not have chrome in it.

    Yes, by definition all pure aniline leathers are vegetable-dyed, and those will be classed as unprotected leathers by Hancock and Moore,

    If you are looking for super-clean leathers that are 100% Sustainable, then you want ones known as Declare Red List leathers. These are organic leathers that are as chemically free as they can possibly be. They are expensive, and come out of Europe. We have out first group of pieces coming in these new leathers next month in Madrid Spice, on a H&M Boho Sofa and chair. And the leather is fantastic, one of the finest I have ever seen. These typically are GR6 price levels at H&M, or higher.
