    NY Now lounge to spotlight Zuo’s Allison Eden collection

    Zuo’s recent collaboration with designer Allison Eden will be in the spotlight at next month’s NY Now show when the company returns to the cutting-edge design show for the first time since 2017.

     

    Zuo’s signature mid-century modern furniture – including several pieces covered with Eden’s mosaic-inspired fabrics – will be featured in a high-profile lounge for designers that will be located adjacent to the main show entrance.

     

    NY Now organizers say the goal is to give designers a focal point to reconnect since the organization has not held an in-person trade show in more than two years. Plus, the event likes to highlight works by New York City natives such as Eden. (Her studio currently is in Brooklyn.)

     

    “It gives our audience a chance to experience a fun and elevated take on class

  5. Upholstery from the Dominican Republic? You’d better believe it

    Upholstery from the Dominican Republic? You’d better believe it

    Amid the myriad of supply chain challenges facing furniture importers these days, the enormous rise in container shipping costs – especially for goods shipped from Asia – takes center stage. And the seemingly endless delays in getting those containers from an Asian port to a U.S. warehouse runs a close second.

    But the folks at Zuo have developed a very creative end-run around this issue. In addition to ramping up production at its upholstery factory in Mexico, the company recently began making upholstery in the Dominican Republic.

    So you’ve never heard of anyone making upholstery in the Dominican Republic? We hadn’t either – until we got a peek at Zuo’s new product launches at last month’s High Point Market. The lineup included 25 sharp-looking SKUs from the new Dominican Republic factory.

    Yes, the new products must

    Award-winning accent chair illustrates growing importance of casual styling

    A quirky Zuo accent chair suitable for indoor or outdoor use proved to be very popular with design-minded attendees at this month’s High Point Market.

    It was so popular, in fact, that it earned a Market Snapshot “People’s Choice” award from International Market Centers, the owner of several major market showroom buildings. The chair was one of only three furniture pieces to earn the award after online voting in the weeks leading up to the show.

    “I am especially proud of this award because it was voted on by members of our target audience – buyers who have an eye for great design at a great value,” said Luis Ruesga, CEO of Zuo. “It also illustrates the growing importance of casual styling in almost any indoor or outdoor living space.”

    The winning chair, named the Kelley, was one 49 finalists. Voting took place on IMC

    Colorful mosaic patterns highlight new fabric line from designer Allison Eden

    Continuing its aversion to “me too” products, Zuo has partnered with designer Allison Eden – best known for her mosaics on tile and glass – on a line of stunning upholstery fabrics that will be introduced at next month’s High Point Market.

    The new fabrics, which combine her colorful mosaic designs with solid leather and fabric colors, create a unique look that will give retail sales floors a pop of color many times over.

    “I couldn’t be more excited about this new fabric line we’ve developed with Allison,” said Luis Ruesga, CEO of Zuo. “It gives our dealers a way to reach younger consumers with a look they won’t find anywhere else.”

    Ruesga said the new products also should allow the company to expand its customer base with both e-commerce and traditional brick-and-mortar retailers. And who knows? They may even be suitab

    Designers take note: Survey says room packages still a winner with consumers

    We were intrigued by a recent survey conducted by Furniture Today that showed a sizeable number of consumers – especially Millennials -- prefer to buy home furnishings in room packages. Given the consumer’s well-known preference for eclectic pieces instead of suites and seating groups in recent years, this finding might seem surprising. But this item-by-item approach can work just as wel
