Art glass and mouth-blown glass vase manufacturer Dynasty Gallery is making its first appearance in HighPoint.
With creations ranging from hand-crafted animal sculptures to paperweights, new plates, bowls and trays, the San Francisco-based, third-generation company has a presence in the gift and décor industries. CEO Linda Corrado said that made High Point a natural place to show.
"The extension of our gift line into home décor accessories was a natural one," said Corrado. "Our products attract both gift and home accessory buyers, so we need to be where they are. That means High Point is a high priority for us."
Director of Sales Lucy Mao said "Handmade Glass for All" is a motto that perfectly describes Dynasty Gallery's vision. She prides herself on the strong partnerships the company has built.
"It's about having a conversation," she said. "We take the time to understand each retail account's specific needs."
A big part of that is ensuring that product is in stock. "With our ability to keep a high level of inventory across hundreds of designs, we're almost always able to supply our dealers on demand," said Lawrence Lane, director of product development and global operations.
Mao sees the company's commitment to sustainability as added value for its partners. "Sustainability really sets us apart from all the others," she said. All glass items are made with 25 percent recycled glass. Electric furnaces are used to reduce the company's carbon footprint. Only reclaimed water is used during the polishing process, and packaging is made of post-consumer fiber.
Dynasty Gallery is not only expanding its industry presence and extending its line, the company is moving into new mediums. The same quality found in its decorative glass pieces can be found in its new designs crafted of sustainable sources such as mango wood, recycled metals and buffalo horn.
New items for fall 2013 include hammered metal bowls and trays, reflecting a décor trend toward warm metallics. Blues and greens are also big this fall, and those undersea tones are evident in many of the gallery's new vases and decanters.
Visitors to Dynasty Gallery's Showplace 3413 showroom will see the full range of products. The showroom is double the size of Dynasty Gallery's AmericasMart space.
"We're looking forward to making an impact on the home furnishings market," said Corrado. "We're here to stay."
A deserving recognition of a wonderful company, run by wonderful people. I've worked with them for several years as their Rocky Mountain area sales representative, and feel privileged to have been a part of the growth and innovative direction they continue to take. The beautiful new showroom is exciting, and will most definitely be a welcome addition to High Point.Vikki Weeks - 2013-09-27 02:56:03 EDT
