ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the sales performance of the formal dining furniture makers and suppliers during the fall furniture market that was held in High Point, North Carolina in October 2006. Sales of formal dining have eroded in recent years as casual dining has grown in popularity. However, at this market, formal borrowed from casual's bag of tricks, and manufacturers reported success with new versions featuring leaf tables, slimmer cases and round tables.
