Las Vegas Splendor: Adesso Adds Designs with Mercury Glass, More

The solid wood Serengeti coat rack is one of the newest items in this category, which keeps expanding for Adesso. adessohome.comThe solid wood Serengeti coat rack is one of the newest items in this category, which keeps expanding for Adesso.

Along with its new showrooms this year--first in High Point, then in Dallas and Las Vegas--Adesso also continued to add new collections as well as expand existing ones. The Danbury and Brookfield torchieres both use mercury glass as a shade in a newly developed process, said Paul Berk, vice president, sales. They received a good reaction at market because they offer a variety of styles and finishes, from contemporary to transitional, he said. There is also an inside shade, which can be removed if the consumer wants to use a specialty bulb. "It's the beginning of a new series."

Building on the success of the Papyrus table lamp line, Adesso added color to the series: blue and purple. "Papyrus caters to a younger generation," Berk said. It has an unusual look, he added, as the shade is made of crushed paper in acrylic.

Walden is a set of adjustable table and floor lamps made of wood, including the knobs. "They have a rustic look," he said.

Being "specialists" in coat racks, Adesso also keeps expanding its line in this category. One of the newest introductions this summer was Serengeti. Made of solid wood, it is 72 inches tall and has a walnut finish. "It's more substantial," he said. "The tripod base makes it balanced."
