Commerce Concourse

Shuttle stops: Green Line 1, 2, 13 | Red Line 1, 15

All airport, hotel, Park & Ride, and downtown shuttles arrive and depart from this one, central location, at the Transportation Terminal. Directly adjacent to the Transportation Terminal is the IHFC building. Spanning 5 wings and rising 11 stories, it is bigger than many home furnishings trade shows. Just across the concourse from IHFC, Showplace offers five full floors of furnishings in every category and style. Between them is Center Stage, home to our Stars Under The Stars concerts on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

Hamilton Wrenn North

Shuttle Stops: Red Line 16-25

Expansive showrooms of major home furnishings brands line the streets of this richly populated neighborhood. Across Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, the Hamilton Wrenn Design District, known as “the five star part of Market,” is home to a great variety of high-end, design-oriented showrooms.

Uptown Main

Shuttle Stops: Red Line 14, 25, 26

Most of the storefronts along High Point’s North Main thoroughfare are standalone showrooms. Some feature high-end luxury goods, others target the more promotional price points. Along High Ave. and English Rd., the Off-Main Design District presents a collection of fashion-forward exhibitors whose storefronts capture an old fashioned Main Street shopping experience.

North Elm

Shuttle Stops: Red Line 27, 28

Known for its collection of designer-oriented showrooms, this easy-to-walk neighborhood offers a fine selection of unique and artisan products. It is also home to two important bits of High Point history. The three-story, black brick building at the corner of W. Broad and N. Elm was one of the first Market locations, opening in 1906. Tucked in the back of this neighborhood at 407 West High St. you’ll find another piece of High Point history, Pandora’s Manor. This stately home was built by High Point furniture pioneer Henry Fraser in 1906, and is now an upscale B&B.

Market Square & Elm

Shuttle stops: Green Line 5, 14 | Red Line 29, 14

Four must-see venues define this neighborhood. Suites at Market Square (SAMS) is our only temporary showroom space, housing more than 340 exhibitors on three floors. Market Square Tower features some of the world’s best-known rug and fabric brands, plus some major furniture makers. Commerce & Design building offers eight stories of showrooms filled with products in every category and style, and 220 Elm is a great place to shop for contemporary furnishings.

Russell & Green

Shuttle Stops: Green Line 5, 6, 7, 8

From value-priced importers to European antiques and reproductions, fine hand crafted made in USA upholstered goods, and luxury designer lines, this little corner of Market is full of great finds.

Downtown Main

Shuttle Stops: Green Line 3, 4, 9, 10

Along Main Street from Commerce Avenue to Green Street, you’ll find IHFC Main, the first major High Point Market venue, featuring 10 floors of suppliers serving every category. On the other side of the street, National Furniture Mart, Furniture Plaza, and Plaza Suites, fill almost the entire block with exhibitors, while standalone showrooms fill storefronts all the way down Main St. to Grimes Avenue, ending at the multi-tenant Atrium On Main.

Centennial Wrenn South

Shuttle Stops: Green Line 3, 10, 11, 12, 13

A great little area to explore, with a variety of standalone showrooms and multi-tenant buildings presenting products in every price point. Market On Green features six floors of showrooms, The Home Fashions Resource Center, houses 15 showrooms on 3 floors. The four Center Point buildings (on Manning, Centennial, Russell, and Hamilton), are a delightful group of repurposed factories that maintain their industrial vibe while offering a complete suite of comforts and amenities.
