Furniture manufacturing began in High Point in the late 1880s. The High Point Furniture Manufacturing Company was the first to ship furniture beyond the city, though soon other furniture manufacturers, attracted by a good supply of lumber and a strong regional market for inexpensive furniture, opened for business. High Point hosted the first Southern Regional Market in 1909. From this date, the shows evolved into the International Home Furnishings Market, a semi-annual furniture event.
