Lauderdale, FL – (October 13, 2016) CASTELLE, award-winning designer and manufacturer of handcrafted luxury furnishings Made in the Americas, announces its participation as one of the exhibitor sponsors of the High Point Market Design Bloggers Fall Tour. CASTELLE, exhibiting in IHFC – Main Building – M101 during the Market, will not only host a showroom tour for the group of top design bloggers; but also a luncheon. Designed as a collaboration between Esteem Media, Inc. and the High Point Market Authority, the Design Bloggers Tour will take place from October 22 – 26, 2016.
“The social media platform is a growing medium of education and inspiration for consumers to design professionals everywhere,” said Steve Lowsky, CEO, CASTELLE. “With this sponsorship, the design bloggers will be able to experience the luxury side of outdoor living through our High Point showroom tour and a greater understanding of handcrafted, customizable outdoor furnishings that retailers, designers and consumers are seeking.”
