Ameriwood focus on SOHO at HPM

 15 March 2019     HGO Staff 

HIGH POINT, North Carolina – Ameriwood Home is planning to make a statement in the small office, home office (SOHO) category at the upcoming spring edition of the market here, the result of research showing that home buyers are looking for houses with extra space to accommodate remote working positions.

Ameriwood Home, a division of Canadian consumer goods giant Dorel Industries, said that, according to Small Business Trends, the number of people in the United States who now work from home at least half the time is now 115% higher than it was in 2005.

Seen here are some of the small office/home office items in Ameriwood’s new Gillham collection, set to be unveiled at this spring’s High Point Market.“With these statistics increasing each year, it’s essential for us to design functional and stylish office pieces that work for all home types,” said Ray Toal, the company’s vice president of e-commerce. “While walking our showroom, you will see home office styles from simple and open to detailed designs with sophisticated architectural emphases. These options allow practical set ups for apartments, lofts, and larger designated offices.”

The company’s showroom is located on the ninth floor of the C&D Building.

The showroom will display a variety of desk styles from writing desks and L desks to single pedestal desks, most of which will be organised into three collections and offer decidedly new looks for Ameriwood Home.

The Collins will be the first Ameriwood collection to feature the illusion of floating tops. The open, airy design allows it to be an excellent component for smaller spaces. Additional special features are the black tinted glass shelves that add even more modern appeal and class to the collection. It comprises five pieces for use in both the home office and the living room, including a desk, bookshelf, end table, coffee table, and TV stand.

The mid-century modern style is still in full swing with the Remington collection, which features a bookcase, printer stand, and desk with tapered, angled legs to accentuate the popular mid-century style in an office setting. More collection pieces can be found in the living room category with a fireplace TV stand, TV stand, coffee table, accent tables and console.

The Gillham collection will boast modern industrial style with bronze metal pipe framework. The SOHO desk and bookcase have a unique ladder design to create a beautifully coordinated desk and bookcase wall or separate them to accommodate a more intimate office setting. This look also carries into the living room with a TV stand, coffee table, and end table.

Complementing the SOHO story will be colour extensions of Ameriwwod’s top selling bedrooms, fresh bedroom looks, and an expanded SystemBuild cabinetry assortment.

The spring edition of the High Point Market is set to open for its usual five-day run on 06 April.
