High end furniture and accessory manufacturer Christopher Guy will unveil its new standalone showroom during the April 22-26 High Point Market.

A grand opening and 10th anniversary celebration will take place on Friday, April 21.

The 20,000 square-foot building – the first to be built in High Point in more than 12 years – marks one of the most significant undertakings by CG America. Designed by CG founder Christopher Guy Harrison, the new building, fronted by reflection pools and 30-foot windows, is located directly adjacent to IHFC and Showplace in downtown High Point.

"This is the perfect way to celebrate our 10th anniversary,” said Mr. Harrison. “High Point remains one of the key destinations for furniture buyers from across the globe, and so it has been a huge honor to add this unique building to its skyline, a market where our brand has enjoyed continued success.”

At a cost of more than $7 million, the two-floor showroom’s architecture is a reflection of Christopher Guy’s designs, where a host of new introductions will be on view for the first time.

“High Point is known across the globe for our outstanding furniture,” said Mayor of High Point, Bill Bencini. “With this important investment and partnership with International Market Centers and an industry design leader like Christopher Guy, we will continue to solidify our stellar reputation as the Furniture Capital of the World.”

CG now has showrooms worldwide – including New York, Shanghai, Frankfurt, Nanjing, London and Perth, and offers online customers instant accessibility to preview all of the brand’s collection at christopherguy.com.

Harrison will mark CG’s decennial anniversary by hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. on April 21 at the new showroom, located at 129 South Hamilton Street in High Point. Local dignitaries and community leaders will join Harrison for the ribbon cutting along with other luminaries.
