Here at Norwalk Furniture, we work hard to read the trend, style and color tea leaves so that we can curate a beautiful, productive and “right-for-for-the-times” fabric collection.
Each year we comb the aisles of international trade shows, the pages of shelter magazines, the world of social media, trend gurus, tv and film to discover and distill colors and moods that seem perfectly on point. We call it our magic funnel”. Through this complex process we aim to make our assortment appealing and saleable to the consuming public and to be the BEST design “toolkit” for our interior design and retail partners.
Twice yearly, in April and October Norwalk presents a new collection of fabrics and upholstery frames at the semi-annual High Point Furniture Market. Designers and fashion forward furniture dealers anxiously await the new color and lifestyle trends that we feature. This virtual walk-through of our showroom brings to life the colors and frames we featured in the recent October show.
Norwalk Furniture shifted its production from custom upholstered furniture to sewing protective facemasks and medical gowns for local hospitals and healthcare personnel.
Production began on April 6, 2020 after the company received its designation for “Essential Business Status” from Huron County (Ohio). The designation allowed Norwalk to redirect its production efforts and provide for a group of cutters, sewers and pattern makers to voluntarily return to work after being furloughed under the state’s stay-at-home mandate.
