Just in time for the October High Point Market, multi-exhibitor showroom Mill Collective will ramp up its presence with the launch of a new brand identity, website, vendors and programming at Plant Seven, the city’s new center for culture and innovation, located at 410 W. English Rd, Shuttle Stop 27 (Red Line).
Further shaping its role as a unique resource for interior designers, architects and dealers, Mill Collective (formerly known as Mill Village Collective) has abbreviated its name and modernized its branding at the just-launched website millcollective.com, where market attendees may discover new vendors, including Skram Furniture, Miles & May Furniture Works, Cricket Radio Interiors, and returning exhibitors like BuzziSpace, Elijah Leed, Eugene Stoltzfus Furniture Design, and Sobremesa by Greenheart.
Accommodating new exhibitors for October, Mill Collective has expanded to 21,000 square feet from 15,000 square feet occupied at the Spring Market. Located in the former Union Square building, now Plant Seven, Mill Collective will continue its focus at the biannual trade fair as a showcase for custom furnishings resources, sustainable product suppliers and innovative design.
Mill Collective is open to all registered Market attendees from Fri., Oct. 12, through Wed., Oct. 17. An opening reception on Fri., Oct. 12, from 6 to 9 pm, kicks off the trade show and celebrates the first-phase launch of Plant Seven with the introduction of Material ConneXion to Market goers.
