The largest installment yet of Las Vegas Market wrapped Aug. 4, with shop-able showroom space totaling more than 5 million square feet. While the semi-annual event expands each year in several product categories — especially casual and outdoor furnishings and general gift — one of the show’s core segments, residential furniture, was especially strong this summer. Here, four furniture favorites from our editor’s notebook:
TOV Furniture made its home furnishings debut at Las Vegas Market this summer with a one-two punch that CEO Bruce Krinsky calls, “fast fashion.” A perfect confluence of on-point style, accessible pricing and quick delivery, the furniture at TOV Furniture calls out to Millennial shoppers. Modern forms with contemporary flourishes (sheepskin-covered seat and back cushions, acrylic accents, gold finishes are just a few examples) delighted both interior designer and retail buyers. TOV Furniture will exhibit at Las Vegas Market though 2019.
One of the most delightful collections to hit the market in recent years, Julia Buckingham for Global Views captured top placement in the company’s permanent Building A showroom this summer. Comprising a range of products from bookends to seating, the latest offering from the Chicago-based interior designer ushered in a luxurious vibe. Consider her new Bracelet etched vases in satin and polished brass or enamel and brass — gorgeous! Buckingham’s riff on her Wiggle armchair, an armless dining chair version with the same shapely back, captivated in a black micro-velvet.
Lexington Home Brands unveiled its MacArthur Collection at Las Vegas Market and simultaneously offered a blueprint for mixing warm and cool tones. MacArthur furniture is crafted from walnut veneers finished in a warm Mocha Brown hue. The soft satin sheen in noteworthy, as it’s a departure from the reigning weathered and natural finishes. Lexington paired it with faux shagreen in parchment tones, stainless steel, snakeskin-patterned leather and Veracruz stone.
La-Z-Boy brands Kincaid, Hammary and American Drew made their Las Vegas Market debut this summer, with suites of furniture styles that rounded out the middle- to upper-middle furniture options at Las Vegas Market. Warmer finishes and up-market forms were noteworthy. The AD Modern Collection, for instance, offered an urban luxe look that resonated with West Coast buyers in search of affordable chic.
