HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Absolute Style, a High Point-based furniture company specializing in assisted living and hospitality goods, is celebrating the expansion of their business into a new facility.

The young company, open since 2006, has moved its headquarters to West Green Drive from Surrett Drive.

Owner Melanie McNamara says a combination of domestic demand, coupled with heavy exports to Canada and the U.K., has allowed her to expand the business, and hire more upholsters and sewers. They're positions McNamara still has open and hopes to fill soon.

The trickle down effect of Absolute Style's business has provided 150 vendors and employees work, from carpenters to fabric designers and shipping companies.
