High Point Market is an annual trade show and conference for those across the furniture and home furnishings industries. CTSW’s Jerry Cohen, who will be at the conference, has written two blog posts for FurnitureToday.com about the key challenges the industry faces in the wake of the Furniture Brands International bankruptcy. In one post, he discusses globalization, competition, and other trends that may have contributed to the bankruptcy. In another, he raises three key questions every furniture and home furnishings leader and professional should be considering.

“Having talked to many clients, contacts and friends in the furniture business in the weeks since the bankruptcy filing, it’s clear to me that the path forward for the industry is anything but simple,” said Jerry. “High Point Market will be a great chance to learn more about how they are navigating a challenging time.”
