M.L. Campbell® Redefining Design Boundaries at the 2024 Ohio Hardwood Furniture Market

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.

CLEVELAND – March 27, 2024 – The M.L. Campbell-sponsored Showcase House at the 2024 Ohio Hardwood Furniture Market – open April 2-3 – provides inspiration for furniture design pros with exclusive insights into hardwood color and finish trends. Attendees can experience the latest trends via the model home exhibit, which displays M.C. Campbell colors and finishes.

“The Showcase House is a unique opportunity for us to bring our support and color expertise to the Amish markets in a tangible way,” said Maggie O’Hare, Senior Marketing Manager for Global Color and Design at Sherwin-Williams. “This gives us the space to bring color and design trends to this community in a way that complements the beautiful Amish-built furniture. The theme of ‘Honoring Our Roots, Refining Our Craft’ is the perfect representation of this dynamic – we’re honoring the woodwork and refining it with our color expertise.”

In addition to M.L. Campbell products, the Showcase House will feature select designs from Ohio furniture makers who participated in the Ohio Hardwood Furniture Market’s competition.

“We were really impressed with all the submissions from these talented furniture makers,” said O’Hare. “Furniture makers from all over the state submitted designs in 26 categories, and we work with them by providing color recommendations based on our trend research. The final displayed collection at the Market does a fantastic job of highlighting innovative curved edges, elevated classics and the beauty of wooden hardware and grain patters that will be at the forefront of the furniture industry.”

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 are proud to once again work with the Hardwood Furniture Guild to sponsor the Showcase House” said Cate Donovan, Vice President of Sales for Sherwin-Williams Industrial Wood Coatings. “It is important to build connections in this community between brands, designers, and builders – in the end, we’re all working to create products that people want in their homes.  We see great value in working together to bring these products to life.”
