The organization opened a new 25,000-square-foot building  at 311 S. Hamilton St. in High Point in April 2023, featuring a variety of permanent, traveling and special exhibitions related the home furnishings industry. The Hall of Fame Building also serves as a hub for the industry during markets, holds educational programs for students and is available for business meetings and other social events throughout the year.

The American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Foundation was founded in 1988  by a group of home furnishings executives aiming to preserve the heritage of the industry and honor its leaders.
