The 2015 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market® reported the highest volume buying since 2007. In virtually every product category—from furniture to accessories, casual furnishings, gourmet, tabletop, holiday and floral, gift and more—order-writing was fast and furious, propelled by surging retailer optimism and fueled by hundreds of product premieres and line introductions in thousands of showrooms and exhibit booths. The Market, which opened on January 6 as the 58th-consecutive January showing under continuous Portman family ownership and management, has posted a long litany of firsts, led by the landmark opening of Building 1’s Floor 15 design-driven furniture collection making its debut to rave reviews.
