Premarket offers an early look at fall market introductions

Earlier this week, Home News Now attended premarket where it visited case goods and upholstery resources showing new products for the fall market cycle. These companies generated interest among retailers looking to update their sales floors in time for the early 2024 selling season with some of the latest styles and functional elements in each category.
