"The authentic feel of Market Square, with the old hardwood floors, original brick walls and wooden pillars and beams has an unparalleled look and feel," said Hank Cravey, president of HTD. "This environment will enhance the hand made look and feel of our product. Our new showroom is also much larger, which we needed in order to show all of our new product offerings this market. After an overwhelming response to our new Casablanca and Florence Collections at the recent Las Vegas Market, we have added additional skus to both collections which will be shown for the first time at the upcoming High Point Market."
The Casablanca Collection is made from reclaimed salvaged hardwoods like Acacia and Neem wood. Traditional parquet top and door construction gives it a vintage look. The collection includes dining, occasional and case pieces, and will be available in antique weathered and dark chestnut finishes.
The Florence Collection is made from solid Acacia wood. This line features hand-carved tapered legs, butterfly joinery and floating tabletops. Each item has concise proportions and a stain and lacquer finish, available in golden honey and premium finishes.
Based in Austin Texas, HTD offers designs, often inspired by nature, crafted from environmentally-friendly materials and using sustainable practices and materials. The company is a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council.

"Home Trends and Design will be a wonderful addition to the Market Square complex," said Brian Bunch, assistant general manager, MMPI. "Their product offerings fit perfectly with the other higher-end specialty lines in the building."
