  • Market dates: Let’s have a clean fight

    The recent dustup over the dates of next January’s markets in Las Vegas and Dallas brought back some not-so-fond memories of an earlier conflict involving the Las Vegas Market. That one, as furniture industry regulars will recall, pitted the Vegas market against High Point — the granddaddy of furniture markets — and turned a bit ugly at times. Here’s hoping the current backers of the Dallas and Las Vegas shows don’t resort to those tactics. The catalyst for much of the High Point-Las Vegas sniping was former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman.

    Yes, we have lemons, but can make lemonade

    Last winter it was weather. This time it’s ports. It seems the furniture industry can’t catch a break. For the second year in a row it appears the industry will be forced to make up ground lost early in the year to outside events that have served to blunt sales momentum.
