Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, April 24, 2012
HIGH POINT - Veteran industry designers are among those behind the launch of new case goods supplier Anthony Arthur Furniture here.
The Columbus, Ohio-based company was co-founded by Art Lanciers, former vice president of merchandising for American Signature, and Tony Yang, former vice president of international sourcing at Value City. It is showing here in the International Home Furnishings Center, M-1301.
"We are reaching as high as we can with fashion and quality while still delivering very strong values," Lanciers said in a press release.
Among the design veterans involved in collections this week are Leonard Eisen, the creator of Pulaski's Keepsakes collection, Hilco and Derek Woudstra, Dave Miedema and Chuck Montalbano.
The company is launching five collections here in traditional, transitional and contemporary styles. Products include bedroom, dining room, home office, home entertainment, upholstery and occasional furniture.
Three collections are available in two finish options and one is available in three finishes. All of its collections will be sourced from Asia and are "heirloom quality," the release said.
The company's 16,000-square-foot showroom takes up the entire 13th floor of the IHFC's Main wing.
