HIGH POINT – Solid wood case goods manufacturer Simply Amish is moving to a new showroom in the Hamilton Wrenn design district in time for the October High Point Market as part of a move to showcase its custom capabilities to the designers and retailers that typically shop that area of market.
The company will occupy about 3,800 square feet of space in space 103 of the North Court of 200 North Hamilton. This is slightly larger than its previous space in D-1102 of the International Home Furnishings Center.
“We have been building custom furniture for more than 40 years, and we hope this new showroom will help potential new dealers and designers visualize what we can do for them,” said owner and CEO, Kevin Kauffman. “We are excited to be in this newly renovated space with access to the outdoors that offers a lot of natural lighting. This is a big change from our previous 11th floor space in IHFC.
“The easy access being on the ground floor in the heart of the Hamilton Wrenn District will be very beneficial to our customers and sales reps during the upcoming October market.”
The company said that it will adhere to policies established by the High Point Market Authority to make sure guests are as safe as possible. For that reason, while appointments are not mandatory, it is asking visitors to set appointments in order to help the company maintain safe social distancing guidelines at the event.
Customers can make an appointment by calling Simply Amish customer service at 217-268-4504 or emailing Kevin Kauffman directly at KKauffman@SimplyAmish.com.
I’m Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
