Padma's Plantation returns to April High Point Market

Company will show in Suites at Market Square location

HIGH POINT - Padma’s Plantation, which specializes in indoor and outdoor residential furniture made with natural woven materials and reclaimed woods, is returning to the High Point Market after about four years.

The company last showed in April 2013 at the Alamo building at 317 S. Hamilton Street. Due to light traffic and sales, the company decided to pull out of the market for an extended period.

"We just could not justify showing there,” said Renee Maria Fanjon, director of marketing, adding that the time is right to return as, “We feel that show traffic is padmanimproving and the market is also improving.”

At the April 22-26 market, the company will show in a 700-square-foot-space in G7048 of the Salon area of the Suites at Market Square. There, it will show a mix of new product including new reclaimed teak and metal dining tables for indoor and outdoor use as well as new stylish club chairs.

“We feel that we need to go back to market now that our offering has grown and changed dramatically,” said Fanjon, adding that there will be a lot of introductions featuring new materials.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
