At each High Point Market, attendees from around the world eagerly gather to scope out brand new products and designer collaborations. While these fresh introductions may be the star of the show at Market, the experience wouldn’t be the same without the opportunity to learn something new and network with industry peers at educational events.
Exhibitors like Fairfield Chair are offering a full program of events that allow attendees to gain valuable knowledge, connect with home furnishings experts, and get some needed rest from walking the High Point campus. Below are 4 can’t-miss events from Fairfield Chair at the upcoming Spring Market, set for April 2-6.

3. Virtual Design Challenge Awards
Sunday, April 3, 6 p.m. during the Hamilton Wrenn District Second Night Celebration | Fairfield Showroom - 200 N. Hamilton St.
For the 2022 Fairfield Virtual Design Challenge, seven designers were tapped to produce renderings using the company’s upholstery and casegood product lines to create a space of any style using exact dimensions of Fairfield’s High Point showroom. Fairfield asked the designers to style the space to reflect a theme from a movie that has inspired them. A curated panel of expert judges will be tasked with reviewing the renderings and selecting the winners at the upcoming April Market. The first place winner’s rendering will come to life inside the Fairfield showroom at the October High Point Market, and they will also receive a $5,000 Fairfield voucher. Visitors are encouraged to check out the renderings and see who wins!
