Central Oriental Heads Back to High Point

SANFORD, Me.-Rug manufacturer Central Oriental will return to High Point Market next month, exhibiting in space M304 in the International Home Furnishings Center's Pavilions section on the third floor. The showroom is about 1,500 square feet.

The move back to the High Point Market made sense, said Jim Thompson, vice president of sales and marketing. "We target furniture store retailers and this is their market," he said. The company will highlight its U.S.-made product and its best sellers at the market, he added. "U.S. manufacturing resonates with these retailers."

Central Oriental last exhibited at High Point Market four years ago.
