Nominations are open for the American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Future Leaders.

The American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Foundation has opened nominations for Future Leaders who represent rising industry stars recognized for their leadership, personal growth, communications skills and commitment to the industry. The Foundation will select Future Leaders and facilitate vibrant discussions over dinner with inducted Hall of Fame members during the April 2021 High Point Market. 
“In addition to honoring the exceptional leaders who have built our industry, we are focused on inspiring and encouraging a new class of leaders,” says Martin Ploy, President of the Foundation Board of Directors. “These small dinner settings, with just five future leaders and five Hall of Fame inductees, impart lifelong inspiration and significance to both the honorees as well as the inducted members of the Hall of Fame, who are equally interested in the views of emerging leaders.”
Each of the Future Leaders dinners will feature a guided discussion on leadership and innovation led by Steve Pond, the founder of FurnitureToday.
Nominations are open to individuals who are younger than 40 years old, an innovator, a leader among their peers, highly engaged with the industry as a long-term career, willing to join in discussion, and someone the company would like to encourage professionally. Past honorees have represented retail, home accents, case goods manufacturing, upholstery manufacturing, finance, furniture design, technology and sales, among other categories.
