Universal To The Trade is an exclusive program for interior designers. But if you want to be a part of it, you’re going to have to give up a few things, namely: order minimums, long shipping times and being shopped at retail.
But giving up something means getting something else in return. There are NO order minimums. Need one item? Then order one item. Products ship from our warehouse in an average of 14 days. And all products within the To The Trade program are exclusive to interior designers. You won’t find it at retail, brick-and-mortar or online.
Where you will find it is in High Point at the Universal Furniture showroom during the semi-annual High Point Furniture Market held every April and October. Designers from across the continent come to see what’s new and noteworthy. We know not everyone can come to High Point, so we’re giving you the opportunity to win a trip to a 2018 High Point Market!
During the Design Blogger’s Conference this March, visit our lounge in the main conference hall and register to win an all-expenses-paid, five-day High Point experience! What’s included? Airfare plus four nights at the sumptuous and hip Kimpton Hotel and Uber credits for transportation back and forth to the Market. And to make your travel chicer, Moore & Giles will provide the winner with new luggage gear made from their exquisite leathers.
You’ll experience a full day at the Universal Furniture showroom, a 118,000-square-foot emporium of furnishings for the whole home. In addition to a guided tour of the showroom, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in educational events held in our learning center, a state-of-the-art meeting space where industry experts and influencers gather to discuss the latest trends and business practices.
Next, you’ll spend one day with Adam Japko’s Design Bloggers tour, which visits multiple showrooms throughout High Point. Then take some time to navigate the town’s showrooms on your own, paying attention to the nooks and crannies where you’ll discover inspiring finds and Instagram-worthy visuals. It’s a not-to-be-missed experience.
