We were delighted to have the opportunity to interview President of Culp Home Fashions, Iv Culp. As a business leader, community volunteer, husband and dad – this is one busy guy!
A. We manufacture and market decorative mattress fabrics, cut and sewn covers and upholstery fabrics. We are a public company traded on NYSE (symbol: CULP)
A. My Grandfather started the business in 1972 as a small converter. Over the past 45 years with his leadership along with my father, we have grown to become one of the largest fabric companies for bedding and furniture in North America. I guess you could say it’s in my blood.
A. Anything in sports, and understanding that I can’t play anything that well anymore – a sports broadcaster.
A. That the most rewarding and the most challenging part of business always revolves around the people.
A. My first job was at the 1992 Barcelona summer Olympics. As a perk of the job, I was able to attend every game of the original Dream Team.
A. Stay calm and level headed. Things are never as good or as bad as they may seem.
A. Having success as a team. I love collaborative decisions that drive our business forward and reward our associates.
A. On Fire by John O’Leary. Awesome man and my favorite keynote speaker.

A. Home with my family.
A. Scotch on the rocks or a good Lager.
A. Watching my kids play anything that motivates them – and Carolina Basketball.
A. Dunkin Donuts – I am not a fancy coffee drinker.
A. Visit during Furniture Market, so you can see how the city comes alive and take a tour through High Point University.
