Exclusively sponsored by M.L. Campbell, the Showcase House brings together craftsmanship, color trends and industry expertise to continue growing demand for high-quality and locally-made home furnishings.
M.L. Campbell® Wood Finishes invites furniture design pros to experience the latest in hardwood color and finish trends at the Showcase House, a complete model home exhibit with a range of hardwood furniture featuring colors and finishes curated and sponsored by M.L. Campbell, at the Spring 2023 Ohio Hardwood Furniture Market, March 28–30.
The Showcase House will feature the “best of the best” from a competition that asked Ohio furniture makers to submit designs in up to 26 categories. The resulting collection represents the forefront of today’s trends in furniture design, artisanship and creativity.
The walk-through display will be professionally styled with a diverse collection of décor, along with wood coatings from M.L. Campbell Wood Finishing Systems, the exhibit’s sponsor. This sponsorship is a first of its kind, displaying in full-scale the well-crafted pieces from this strong community of builders with color and finishing options that resonate with today’s consumers. M.L. Campbell continues to support artisans and is committed to helping large and small manufacturers grow their market share by extending color and technical expertise to achieve brilliant finishes.
“This opportunity is a testament to the strong partnership we’ve built with the Guild and our local community of artisans and builders,” said Mark Kieschnik, Sales Director for M.L. Campbell. “We’re thankful to them for their help and support in bringing this unique way of showing today’s wood coating and color trends to life, and we hope the exhibit helps extend their craftsmanship to wider audiences.”
“The colors and finishes showcased throughout the house are on the frontline of today’s aesthetic preferences,” said Lauren West, Director of Global Color and Design for M.L. Campbell, who curated colors and finishes throughout the exhibit. “With the Showcase House, our goal is to immerse furniture and design pros in today’s tastes and trends, helping them draw new inspiration and build new business opportunities with lasting impact.”
The Ohio Hardwood Furniture Market is presented by The Hardwood Furniture Guild, a nonprofit organization of builders, finishers and industry supporters that help our community work together to promote high-quality home furnishings and grow demand for locally made products.
“We’re excited to work with M.L. Campbell to bring this new experience to the Ohio Hardwood Furniture Market,” said Kendrick Mullet, Executive Director, The Hardwood Furniture Guild. “The Showcase House is a unique way we can further educate and connect retail buyers with hardwood
furniture builders and supporters in a realistic setting to learn more about trends and finishes that make a lasting impact and continue to support the growth of the hardwood furniture industry in Ohio.”
