HIGH POINT — At this week’s High Point Market, visitors to Sherrill Furniture will experience a whole new showroom presentation that places all of the company’s brands under one roof in its newly renovated space at 315 Fred Alexander Place.
Home News Now visited the 100,000-square-foot building a week before Market to get an early look at what buyers can expect when it finally opens. One big change is the move of the Hickory White and Lillian August brands across the street from 309 N. Hamilton St. to Fred Alexander Place.
The first floor of the renovated space showcases the Sherrill Furniture, Motion Craft and Whittemore Sherrill brands, while the second floor houses Lillian August, Mr. & Mrs. Howard and Sherrill Occasional, formerly CTH Sherrill Occasional. The third floor houses Hickory White and Precedent.
There are also design centers on each floor where customers can choose from a wide array of fabrics and leathers available throughout the line along with other custom options.
Below is snapshot of some highlights from the newly reimagined space.
