Outdoor living and luxury casual furnishings continue to draw a positive response from the home industry’s retail and design buyers. During the recent Fall 2015 High Point Furniture Market, CASTELLE’s contemporary collections coupled with custom design options registered positive marks with show buyers. Durable aluminum furnishings in contemporary motifs and enhanced metallic powder coat finishes scored big as the potential of the outdoor category continues to grow.
“The response from buyers in High Point was once again very positive to the outdoor segment as well as to our latest introductions,” said Rory Rehmert, senior vice president of sales and marketing for the Florida based manufacturer. “Attitudes were upbeat with buyers also being attracted to the trending modern aesthetic that the Pride designers have tapped into.”
CASTELLE’s 2016 contemporary collections were joined by additional traditional introductions as well as innovative fire features in an effort to provide a complete outdoor story. Design professionals also responded to Pride’s ability to individually handcraft each piece with finishes, fabrics, designs and details for the creation of one of a kind outdoor rooms. “Retailers and designers are realizing the potential to enhance previously interior-only client projects to now include outdoor,” said Rehmert. “This has resulted in greater interest in the category and our heightened High Point Market traffic.”
