Fashion designers and innovators in the home furnishings world are in High Point this week for the bi-annual market.

More than 2,000 exhibitors fill the furniture and home furnishing showrooms of High Point. 

Kelly Edwards has produced High Point Market videos for the web.  Buyers tell her, “There’s always brass and vintage brass is really hot right now.  Anything antique to brass." 

And instead of as much black and gray, buyers say they think they're getting more into blue and greens.

The market has 11.5 million square feet of exhibit space.

Stanley Furniture is revealing its new Preserve Collection.  Just days ago, Stanley also announced it was shutting down its “Young America” line that will affect some 400 workers in Robbinsville, in the western part of the state.

High Point Market runs from until April 10th.
