T3 rolls out the carpet at High Point Market

A maple burl sample from T3.T3 utilizes distinctive raw materials such as this maple burl for its high-end goods.
HIGH POINT – T3 Custom Furniture, an 8-year-old high-end domestic resource supplying custom furniture direct to the interior design channel, is planning its first exhibition at High Point Market for the Oct. 14-18 show.

T3 stands for “To The Trade.” By utilizing multiple producers T3 supplies reasonably priced needs for residential, commercial and hospitality applications. Products include case goods, acrylic pieces, upholstery and dining chairs.

T3’s 4,000-square-foot High Point showroom is located at 2400 S. College Dr., just of Main Street behind Kagans Furniture.

Amish manufacturing partners in the Midwest supply case goods and chairs in any of eight species of domestic hardwoods. With consultation from CCI/Finish Works, T3's finishing shop is expert at sample matching. Popular finishes include “Lacquer” developed with Opaque Stains on solid maple. Acrylic is fashioned by a team that has worked in acrylic production since the 1980s.

T3’s North Carolina upholstery factory includes custom frame and finishing options, in addition to “good, better, and best” construction and cushioning. Styles from Euro chic to traditional eight-way hand-tied are available in sofas, chairs or sectionals, customizable to the inch.

Powell SlaughterPowell Slaughter | Senior Editor

I'm Powell Slaughter, senior editor at Furniture/Today. I returned to the publication in January 2015 after nine years of writing about furniture retail strategies and best practices at a monthly magazine focusing on home furnishings retail operations. Prior to that, I spent 10 years with F/T covering wood furniture, the last five of those as case goods editor. While I cover occasional, home entertainment and home office here, a major responsibility is expanding our attention to the logistics side of the industry. I hope my articles will encourage a dialogue with retailers, vendors, third-party logistics specialists and carriers. I’d love to hear your ideas, concerns and suggestions for smoother flow of material and goods.
