Emerald City in Las VegasJanuary 18, 2013
Inspired by Pantone's 2013 Color of the Year, Emerald, Las Vegas Market's will present a colorful, juried, "total home" product exhibit in a flagship location on the first floor of World Market Center's Building C.
In a partnership with Pantone and Houzz, "Road to Emerald" will include three lifestyle concepts that showcase noteworthy products from current and future Las Vegas Market tenants, all against the backdrop of recent Pantone color picks: Emerald, Tangerine Tango and Honeysuckle. Ultimately, "Road to Emerald" seeks to inspire retailers and designers as they shop Las Vegas Market this winter, including Gift+Home and the Las Vegas Design Center.
"We wanted to create a visually striking, merchandised window display that represents the 'total home' product offering available at Las Vegas Market, plus a dazzling Emerald City right here in Las Vegas is a natural," said Dana Andrew, vice president of global marketing & communications of International Market Centers. "From furniture and accessories to gifts and tabletop, our 'Road to Emerald' mixes on-trend products with impactful colors that continue to bring excitement to home and gift stores."
Featured products include an enchanting light fixture designed by Mary McDonald for Robert Abbey; chairs and tables from Las Vegas Market newcomers Julian Chichester and Mr. Brown; a best-selling vanity table and chair from Christopher Guy (who returns to Las Vegas Market this winter in a new showroom) complemented by a glam-inspired upholstered lingerie swivel chest and faux sheepskin bench created by Michael Amini of AICO; a timeless dining table from industry bellwether (and Las Vegas Market first-timer) Stanley Furniture, adorned with a complete tabletop presentation by internationally-renowned home brand Alessi (a future Las Vegas Market tenant); wall décor from the Barry Dixon Collection by Arteriors; a new rug from the Genevieve Gorder Collection by Capel; eclectic accents from Phillips Collection; and many more colorful surprises.
