Nearly 100 from Decorating Den Interiors to visit High Point Market. “May be largest buying group at Market”
Easton, Md. — Decorating Den Interiors, North America’s largest interior design and home furnishings franchise company, will bring nearly 100 design professionals to this fall’s High Point Home Furnishings Market.
“We have been bringing our design professionals to showrooms and for factory tours for more than 20 years,” says David Haseley, vice president of merchandising. “However, in recent years, particularly the last several fall markets, we have brought our largest groups and have had our most ambitious schedules of showroom visits. We may be the largest buying group that visits Market.”
“We have organized tours through showrooms of suppliers that participate in our LIVV Home Collection™,” he explained. “Our designers appreciate the personal extra attention they get and the product knowledge they gain. They also enjoy the camaraderie of being together with their peers. ”
Special evening events have been scheduled at Craftmaster and Taylor King Monday, and Tuesday respectively.
Upon returning from the market the merchandising team will put together a ‘Highlights of the Market’ presentation to share with those that were not able to make it to High Point and to use as marketing seminars in their home areas.
Celebrating its 50th year in business next year, Decorating Den Interiors has franchises throughout the U.S. and Canada. While many of its franchise owners come with previous design experience or from other positions in the home furnishings industry, some also come from other careers. The company provides extensive training in design, marketing, and business management, and is a leader in the use of technology to maximize profitability.
The company’s more than 135 preferred suppliers in its LIVV Home Collection™ enable its design professionals to offer clients a single source for fine furniture, case goods, lighting, accessories, window treatments, wall and floor coverings, and closet/storage systems.
