Abstract: On April 14 the largest furniture exposition in the world will open for the first of its two 2005 engagements. Of course I’m talking about the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, North Carolina. For years the IHFM has been the place to go to see new product lines and schmooze with manufacturers (and increasingly, importers). But now a new and aggressive competitor has appeared on the horizon, the new furniture market in Las Vegas, and the dominance of the High Point market may be challenged.
