High Point, NC , Sept. 24, 2012 — A unique installation celebrating the home furnishings and design industries will be unveiled at next month’s High Point Market, Oct. 13-18. Designed by famed floral designer Randy McManus, the ‘Living’ Dining Room is a full-scale room design created entirely of flowers and plants. It will be on display at the corner of Commerce Avenue and Main Street in the pedestrian walkway.
“This fresh-air exhibit showcases the design talent that is prevalent in the home fashion world,” says Tammy Nagem, chief operating officer of the High Point Market Authority. “Randy’s incredible creation is a tour de force that celebrates the High Point Market’s role as the place to discover new trends and products, and to find inspiration and creativity.”
The ‘Living’ Dining Room is co-sponsored by RetailerNOW, Emissary and Lazy Susan (both divisions of J Douglas), Wesley Hall, Boda, and Gypsy Faire.
