Which city in the United States is known as the Furniture Capital of the World?

Posted by LDonia on 09/30/2013

According to the High Point Museum:

Following World War II, an estimated 60% of all furniture made in America was produced within a 150-mile radius of High Point, and the city’s week-long semi-annual furniture markets have become the major international wholesale markets for the industry. The journey from a few small family-owned furniture factories, using abundant local timber supplies and hardworking labor from abandoned tobacco farms, to a major manufacturing and distribution center is a local story with national impact.
