Las Vegas Winter Market Wrap-Up: New Editions
March 6, 2012,
The good vibes of the winter home furnishings shows continued in Las Vegas for the Winter Market at the World Market Center. Vendors unveiled numerous new products for a seemingly hungry retail contingency. Here are some of the highlights from the show.
Moultrie Park, Bassett's newest collection, made its Las Vegas debut at the show.
It's inspired by finds in King Street antique shops in Charleston, S.C. The collection is traditional and timeless, with a casual twist. Three finishes--dark rum, tea stain and parchment--can be mixed or matched. Accents of cane and rattan panels can be reversed to provide either a coastal or more inland look. Natural cane celebrates the West Indian heritage of Charleston and gives the group a more relaxed look. It's crafted from select hardwood solids and cherry veneers.
The collection includes bedroom, dining, occasional, entertainment and upholstery. The upholstery features a shaped back frame with roll arm and wooden panel with reverse twist and rosette turning. bassettfurniture.com
Priscilla Presley took centerstage at the Vegas Market to show her new home furnishings collection created through a partnership with HStudio.
Inspired by the actress and ex-wife of Elvis Presley, the collection includes coordinating sofas, accent furniture, rugs, wall decor and tabletop.
"I am passionate about the art of design and it is my desire that everything within my collection expresses a personal story told with detail, style and sophistication," Presley said. "Inspired by classic couture, coupled with contemporary flair, it is an offering of modern sophistication for every home and everyone."
The collection offers three distinctive looks: Vintage Eclectic, Traditional Living and Gothic Modern. Vintage Eclectic embraces vintage style and the natural beauty of butterflies and flowers. Traditional Living mixed traditional with a warm and welcoming color palette, and is inspired by Priscilla's love of horses. Gothic Modern mixes classic style with a rock 'n roll edge that is inspired by a sense of freedom represented by a dove motif. hstudio.com
Phoenix-based aspenhome added an entertainment center and occasional tables to its Hathaway Hill Collection.
The new Big Wall Console comes in a black truffle finish on reclaimed cherry and is designed to accommodate larger flat-screen TVs. The side center has a display area for up to a 60-inch wide screen. The console has a display shelf with three-way touch lighting, gamer drawer, storage drawers and glass door area for components. Side piers feature display shelves with pullout media storage.
For smaller rooms, the console is available with or without a hutch, which includes a drop-down drawer for added workspace.
The Hathaway Hill occasional group includes a cocktail table with two fully extended storage drawers. Open storage on the lower level keeps books and TV controllers handy and castors make it easy to move and adjust to the user. Hathaway Hill also includes end tables and a smaller chair side table. aspenhome.net
Blending the fresh with the familiar, Lexington's new Quail Hollow lifestyle collection debuted in Vegas.
The collection incorporates classic lines with new design elements, rich finishes and updated fabrics. Crafted from quartered mahogany, designs feature raised panel molding, vertical tambour and graceful turnings on tapered legs.
"Quail Hollow is a fresh take on the familiar, allowing consumers to make a style statement that stays within their comfort zone," said Lexington CEO Phil Haney. "We think the timing for this collection is perfect." lexington.com
Broyhill added Rhone Manor to its Essentials label. It features affordable, classic Louis Philippe styling with cherry veneers in a warm toffee finish.
All collections under the Essentials label are available mixable at the factory, giving retailers a better way to manage inventory and get the right product mix on the floor faster, according to Broyhill.
Rhone Manor has drape pull hardware in an antique soft gold finish, and English dovetailing combines with full extension metal side glides. Bottom drawers--except in media and nightstands--are cedar lined.
The four-piece bedroom set carries a $1,999 retail price. broyhillfurniture.com
