Notes from the Las Vegas World Market Center – January 24, 2016
The Las Vegas Furniture Market (LVFM) has come and gone, and it’s always a whirlwind of style and the latest designs trending from the west coast.
Under brilliant blue January Nevada skies, and temperatures cool enough to wear a jacket, the market didn’t disappoint. The three principal buildings were jam-packed with seating, lighting, tables, rugs, pillows, art and accessories, it was eye-candy at every turn, with the showroom spaces dressed up to entice buyers in.
Some highlights to report: multitudes of colour, from the still-trending blues to the ever-present neutrals – but they were highlighted by brilliant yellow, orange, teal and green accessories.
Showing prominently was lighting in both gold and silver.
Tables with reclaimed wood toppers- a very eclectic mix of old and new combinations.
Carpets have beautiful antiqued washed-out patterns, mostly in same-colour patinas with subtle background notes of textured tones.
Seating was the market star.
Lots of gorgeous leather sectionals with ratchet-back head-rests easily power-operated by a discreetly hidden button.
Contrast welting and beautiful stitching showed prominently in many of the showrooms.
Fabulous chairs with wood trim in mid-century modern styles.
Some final notes and observations: Seating has never been more exciting!
Tailored, contemporary, smart and clean.
Mid-Century modern and “soft” modern designs offer a distinctly fresh look, somehow of yesteryear, but with a scaled-down composition that is both current and on-trend with the mood of today.
Defined lines, wood, angles, great fabrics, leathers and velvets with contrasting pillows, nail heads and button tufting.
Watch for it as it comes through our doors starting February 1st, 2016.
Can’t wait to see you - and thanks for your patronage,
