Twice a year furniture buyers from companies large and small head to the High Point Furniture Market on a mission to carefully select the collections that fulfill the vision for their unique store or group of stores.
The buying team at Decorum Furniture just made the April trip, where they met with our key supplies of the best in luxurious contemporary furniture. As they visit each supplier’s showroom time is spent to carefully study what is new in selections and styles.
The team shops upholstery manufacturers first as this gives them indications of color and style trends for sofas, sectionals, motion styles, chairs, and accents. The latest introductions of fabrics are carefully studied for suitability for each item we purchase. It is important that we make sure our choices will meet the customer’s needs and expectations.
After meetings with the company’s executives and designers, we move on to the next stop, this time a good manufacturer. Here we study the new introductions of contemporary dining rooms and modern bedroom furniture. We review their selection of contemporary and modern designs and consider the value the product represents to the consumer. It is exciting to see the new and innovative finishing that is now available. Some finishes are very organic and wholesome. We see eco-wood that is very durable and practical. Certain modern styles introduce brushed metal or stainless steel finishes.
It is exciting to see products from Canada and Italy that permit the mixing of finishes and include painted and lacquer options. This approach provides an infinite amount of options and allows Decorum’s talented designers to guide our customers to select a product that is uniquely their design.
The dining room in the home is now considered a gathering space and activities include remote working, zoom meetings, a place for family and friends to play games, and, YES, a place to share a meal. All of these uses are considered, so we include the counter height and bar-height tables, barstools and counter stools in our exciting collections.
Bedroom furniture is selected on the merits of how the customer plans to enjoy the space. Your primary bedroom should feel like your private sanctuary with a luxurious bed with a mattress that provides exceptional support and comfort. The dressers and chest of drawers we select are modern, contemporary, or transitional, but designed to function well for your daily use. Secondary bedrooms are just as important, and our designer collections include great options at economical prices.
Motion furniture is sought after by the consumer and is very important to Decorum Furniture. Consumers often refer to this as theatre seating or recliners. We carry both imported leather and fabric designs, as well as domestically manufactured furniture. We search out a variety of options, so you will find reclining chairs, loveseats, sofas, and sectionals by renowned manufacturers like Stressless, Fjord, American Leather, Max Divani, and Natuzzi just to mention a few top-of-the-line suppliers. These suppliers offer luxurious leather and amazing fabrics to provide years and years of enjoyment to the consumer.
Decorum Furniture’s showroom displays selections that range in price from quite affordable to medium to high prices. Decorum makes sure we have excellent prices so we can accommodate the consumer’s needs.
Working with our vendors and their representatives and designers is a fascinating and intense process, so by mid to late afternoon, our team shifts focus and heads over to the showrooms that feature home accents, artwork, paintings, and accessories. This is a more relaxed and fun process and allows us to seek out all the exciting accents that will finish a room and bring it to life. An accent rug may act as inspiration for a color scheme and help guide the color direction for fabrics and textures we select. The process is ever-evolving and exciting.
With the great expertise of our team, the market buying process is condensed to a 4-day period and the team returns to Decorum Furniture to share all the exciting new information with the design staff and sales associates.
And before you know it, new merchandise starts to arrive so Decorum can continue the quest to provide the very best in contemporary and modern furniture.
