On a High at the Spring High Point Market

RUGINSIDER.com EXCLUSIVE by Chris Gigley

 

hpspring2017

Political tumult aside, the economy appears to be moving in the right direction. Spring High Point Market was the latest sign that business is good for rug producers and importers.

Any consensus about a market, positive or negative, is rare, particularly in High Point. Showroom buildings are spread out across the downtown area, diluting traffic and creating misperceptions about how busy or slow the market really is. This time, however, not even torrential rains that drenched two full days could dampen vendors’ outlook:

Steven Loloi, Loloi: “Traffic has been by and large pretty good and retailers are telling us our product is selling, so that’s been encouraging. When you’re working on something for months and months, you never know what the reaction will be like until the show. “

Giovanni Marra, director of marketing and digital strategy, Nourison: “The market has been very good. Saturday was a little up and down, but I think a lot of people were waiting to come into this building for the rainy days. Sunday and Monday were really busy. If you’re lucky enough to be in the IHFC, the rain is a benefit. People will come in and work this entire building instead of going back and forth outside in the rain.”

Sarah Jessica Parker Joins as Headliner at Summer Atlanta Market

Sarah Jessica Parker Headshot Official copy

ATLANTA, GA – Actor, producer and designer Sarah Jessica Parker steps onto the global home furnishings and fashion stage in Atlanta with her exclusive AmericasMart LIVE presentation “Sarah Jessica Parker: Pumps, Purses and Serious Profits—Building a Fashion Empire One Step at Time” on Saturday, July 15. Her LIVE appearance—a centerpiece at The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market®—headlines AmericasMart’s new multimedia Market experience featuring a must-see line up of today’s cultural icons, designers, lifestyle experts and more, educating and entertaining buyers from across the country and around the world on the topics they need to know now.

Parker, who came to symbolize single living in New York City in her role as “Sex and the City” protagonist Carrie Bradshaw, slips out of her character’s shoes to take a real-life leap with an eponymous lifestyle brand that speaks to her fashion sense and adoring fans. Parker’s fascinating career—an ever-expanding entity comprised of acting, production and now fashion design—is making a serious imprint in the luxury retail category she helped revive. Parker’s footwear, apparel and accessory collection, SJP, launched in 2014 and has recently expanded with the opening of her first brick-and-mortar store located in the new MGM Resort in National Harbor. In an intimate Q&A, Parker talks about her journey from actor to successful lifestyle brand and creator, shares the toughest lessons she’s learned at retail, and teaches us how to gather the courage to dive headfirst—or step one stiletto at a time—into entrepreneurship.

Her AmericasMart LIVE appearance brings Parker together with celebrity interior designer Nate Berkus and digital media visionary Erik Qualman, who share inspirational insights into their success. The three globally celebrated headliners each command the AmericasMart LIVE stage on consecutive days as featured guest speakers presenting to a live audience in the newly created Building 3 studio theater. From the center stage, closed-circuit television programming broadcasts throughout the vast 7.2 million-square-foot AmericasMart campus with AmericasMart LIVE anchors and correspondents continuously reporting on Market breaking news, product introductions, trends and special celebrity presentations and appearances across the Market’s 42 product centers and throughout its 13 trade show halls.
