As Shoppe Object continues to set the standard for excellence in the home and gift trade show circuit, anticipation is already building for its next edition. Industry professionals can expect nothing less than a showcase of the latest trends, unparalleled networking opportunities and a celebration of creativity and innovation.
From Salone del Mobile to Shoppe Object at High Point, each of the products in our holiday gift guide was selected by designers, for designers. With a focus on functionality, uniqueness, and aesthetic appeal, each of the products in our holiday gift guide are poised to inspire and elevate the creative spirits of designers from all disciplines.
hoppe Object’s curated installation at High Point Market launched last week, delighting attendees with its spirit of brand discovery, artisanal finds and an inviting temporary exhibition space. Shoppe High Point ran October 14-17 on the third floor of High Point’s Historic Market Square, presenting 100+ carefully selected brands that were new to High Point Market. The show-within-a-show focused on home décor, accessories and furnishings; it marked a successful start for the new twice-yearly fixture at High Point Market.
The patchiness of the market’s attendance highlighted that what the big box buyers want and what the new class of interior designers want is diverging in a major way, forcing some brands to pick a lane
This new collection of pillows was inspired from the Bavarian painter Barbara Regina Dietzsch. Reimagining colors and hues into a jewel saturated tone, we rendered these finches into a larger than life form on our silky satin fabric and created pillows that accent any space indoors and out. Covers are all removable, machine washable, and fade resistant.
New York – September 29, 2023: Shoppe Object, New York’s premier trade event for curated home and gift, has announced that their February show (February 4-6, 2024) will be expand- ing yet again, including a second venue to accommodate rapid growth. In lieu of the tent that previously maximized Shoppe Object’s Pier 36 home, the event has added a venue twice the size – the recently renovated Skylight at Essex Crossing in the heart of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The two neighboring venues are less than a mile apart – Pier 36 and Essex Crossing – and will house the entirety of the expanded show, with convenient, frequent shuttles running between the two locations.
Since its launch, Shoppe Object has seen near-continuous growth in both attendance and Exhibitor count. From a humble beginning of 100 brands at inception, the show debuted an expanded two-pavilion footprint in 2023 with a market of over 500 Exhibitors – a 30% increase from its at-capacity showing in Pier 36 the previous year. This new extension to Essex Crossing doubles that additional space, allowing for a longer roster of curated brands, an ability to accommodate larger booths, and a renewed emphasis on the spirit of discovery that sets the event apart.
The growth in Exhibitors is sure to bring an influx of Buyers. Since its first post-pandemic show in September 2021, Shoppe Object’s credentialed Buyer attendance has grown steadily year-over-year, with an average growth of 55%.
“We’re spreading our wings once again,” said the show’s founder and director, Jesse James. “Over the past two shows we delivered a 30% increase by adding a tent at our Pier 36 home, and now it’s time to double that. With the addition of this brand new venue, part of the Essex Crossing complex and right at the subway hub, we have twice as much room to grow as the tent provided previously. That, and we retain our combined footprint squarely in the heart of Manhattan’s thriving Lower East Side, with two great venues in close proximity. It provides an excellent opportunity for us to bring meaningful growth to our community while continuing to deliver the very best brands from around the world to the New York market.”
Shoppe Object, in collaboration with their parent company ANDMORE (previously IMC), selected Skylight at Essex Crossing for its dramatic architecture and distinctive feeling, as well as its prime location adjacent to the bustling Essex Market and The Market Line, and its prox- imity to Pier 36. The show promises seamless entrance at either venue with shuttles running the walkable distance between the two buildings. The market’s focus and expertise will continue to be on discovery, careful curation and merchandising, bringing Buyers only the most de- sign-forward and high-quality brands across home and gift.
The show will take place Sunday through Tuesday, February 4-6, 2024 between Pier 36 (299 South Street, NYC, NY 10002) and Essex Crossing (135 Delancey Street, NYC, NY 10002 – directly above the Essex & Delancey Street subway stops).
