Announcing our 2019 WOW Award Honorees

For 30 years, Ellen and her husband Mark Caudill produced a television show "Home Fashion Report" where Ellen interviewed top manufacturers and celebrities in the home furnishings industry highlighting trends and news surrounding the High Point Market. Her deep understanding and insight into design, fashion, trend and the business of home furnishings has educated individuals at the High Point Market and around the world.
Ellen has also been instrumental in WithIt as a founding member, founding board member, founding WithIt Ambassador and recipient of the Education Award in 2003.
