Capsule pop-up: Crypton x Floyd Home at High Point

In their first furniture showing ever at High Point, innovative Detroit furniture makers Floyd Home will create a capsule pop-up in Crypton’s own showroom. This mini showroom takeover features their latest collaborative furniture pieces with Crypton upholstery and highlights their robust to-the-trade program for designers.  Designers and press will get an opportunity to see how Floyd’s timeless designs work in sync with Crypton’s long lasting and thoughtful performance fabrics. The pop-up experience will also showcase other Floyd pieces including rugs, lighting and occasional furniture. It will be open from 10am until 3pm Sunday and Monday of Market.

On Sunday at 3, market attendees will gather to meet Floyd co-founders Kyle Hoff and Alex O’Dell at Crypton’s happy hour, a unique opportunity to learn how these two entrepreneurs took a philosophy that furniture should be well-designed, adaptable, accessible, and enduring and turned it into a global brand with mindful, exciting products in more than 50,000 homes.

Said Gabrielson, “Theirs is a remarkable design and business story. We’re so pleased to be able to highlight their work at High Point Market and to collaborate with them on their newest offerings.”  The highlight of the new Crypton x Floyd collaboration is the comfortable yet clean-lined Sink Down Sectional featuring Crypton’s recycled cotton fabric, woven at Crypton Mills in North Carolina. The two Detroit-based design brands last collaborated in 2022, producing a top-selling Floyd sectional featuring Crypton’s luxurious bouclé. The two brands share a commitment to the thinking reflected in Floyd’s tagline: “Original design. Made for keeping.”
