HIGH POINT – Solid wood furniture supplier A-America will hold a party in honor of its 50th year of business at the upcoming High Point Market.
The party will take place 5-8 p.m., Friday, Oct. 13, at the company’s showroom in the International Home Furnishings Center, W-1047. The industry has an open invitation, and drinks and small bites will be served.
Attendees can also view the company’s new product, which includes two dining lines and one bedroom.
Gallagher is the bedroom, featuring hickory construction, clean lines and rounded corners. The first new dining line, Casual Loft, draws inspiration from exposed beam architecture and hits on the traditional farmhouse style. It also is constructed from hickory, featuring a Roasted Hazelnut finish. A server has adjustable and removable shelving, with drawers offering soft-close glides and felt lining.
The other dining line, Voss, is contemporary and made of solid walnut. The tabletop has an inverted beveled edge that’s slightly rounded, complementing the open trestle design and shape. All case pieces of this collection have beveled framing with 45-degree mitered corners, with soft rounded edges. Hardware is minimal with a low profile to keep the focus on the wood.
Family-owned and operated, A-America was founded by two brothers, Fred and John Rohrbach in 1973, when the two began importing ceramics from what was then South Vietnam. With the fall of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), the brothers went to Taiwan and started buying antique reproductions such as solid oak dining tables, brassware, cast iron and nautical antiques. A-America says it was one of the first companies to introduce the concept of importing U.S. hard woods into Taiwan to make furniture.
A-America, focused on the dining and bedroom categories, is headquartered in Seattle, providing solid wood furniture in hickory, oak, mahogany, cherry, birch, pine and ash.
