Moe’s expands showroom for October High Point Market

Full line wholesaler and retailer Moe’s Home Collection will be in a new showroom for October’s High Point Market.

This move comes on the heels of the opening of its American flagship location in Seattle, ongoing success with its Digital Market webinars and virtual showroom, and the launching of its new, fully transactional B2B website.

“Being a lifestyle brand & product-focused company, we are always excited to bring hundreds of new products & our collections to High Point,” said Moe Samieian Jr., president of wholesale. “Now, we are even more excited with our move into a larger showroom that allows even more opportunity to stage the products.”

Around 50% larger than its previous showroom with more than 15,000 square feet, Moe’s new space is situated right by the escalators at IHFC C302. Fall’s High Point Market will be the company’s third home furnishings show in 2020, having also attended Las Vegas in January and August.

“Not only are we excited that the growth of our company required us to get a bigger space to showcase our products properly, but this new, larger showroom hosts a premium location for us to display to a wider audience,” said Seth King, vice president

To reap rosemary and thyme, clip the tops when the plants are in full bloom. The leaves and flowers are often harvested collectively.

    When shopping for a drip irrigation system, look for one that can be adapted to your backyard’s measurement and shape. The hose will have to be placed alongside every row to irrigate the plants’ root zones.
