High Point 2023

We are attending High Point Market this fall on October 14-18, and we are not going alone. Wooded River, Inc., our sister company based out of Idaho, is taking the trip with us, and a new sister company is coming with us for the first time: Big House Fabrics, Inc.

Formerly known as Big House Furniture, Big House Fabrics, Inc. is a Wisconsin-based company that has been in operation since 1994 serving as an upholstery and fabric supplier to the rustic furnishings industry. Known for its unique catalog, bold patterns, and superb customer service, plans to increase its product and service offerings are already underway with most of its operations moving to Fireside Lodge’s manufacturing facilities near Boise, Idaho where Wooded River, Inc. is headquartered. As a top-of-bed and soft goods manufacturer, Wooded River’s facilities are a perfect fit and will also provide increased opportunities for Big House’s clientele.

John Meloy, Big House’s founder, sees the upcoming changes that will only add to the customer experience.

“Big House didn’t have the workforce or space to offer complete cut-and-sew services,” he said, “Running a majority of our operations through the Wooded River facility will not only streamline things, but it will also provide a single-source purchasing experience for our customers.”

For Fireside Lodge Furniture and Wooded River, Inc, this move adds nearly 30 years of experience that will benefit all parties involved.

“Bringing Big House into our fold was a no-brainer,” said Fireside Lodge President and CEO Brandon Andersen. “Big House has created a great name for itself within our niche market, and we look forward to building on that.”

Fireside Lodge, Wooded River, and Big House will be together at High Point Market October 2023 and will be showing on the third floor of the Global Sourcing Pavilion at the following spaces:

Big House - T-608

Fireside Lodge Furniture Company - T-610

Wooded River - T-612
