Michaelian Home is currently exhibiting its wares at the High Point Market in High Point, NC. We will be there through the 24th. How did a famous international furniture market end up in the middle of North Carolina? Well, interesting story...English settlers produced furniture on a small scale since the 17th century. After the Civil War, cheaper labor was available and the furniture industry gained traction in the area with help from the fact that High Point is located in the Peidmont region of NC which lends access to vast tracts of hardwood forest. High Point was also located at a junction of the railroad and the main state road through North Carolina. Over the years, more and more farmers left the fields in search of industrial jobs in High Point and the reputation of the area for producing high quality furniture grew until now not only is High Point known as 'The Furniture Capital of the World', the market that is hosted there twice a year is the largest of its kind. Michaelian Home continues this fine tradition of NC artistry with its home accents. You just need to touch one of our rugs or pillows to realize the quality that made High Point a sensation in the furniture market, is the same that has made Michaelian Home what it is today in the fine floor covering and accessories market. Visit us at the Market or online at www.michaelianhome.com today!
