One Day at Las Vegas Furniture Market

No Comments

by Tyler Dren

I was recently in Las Vegas, Nevada on vacation with my wife this past January. It happened to coincide with the Las Vegas Furniture Market, the most comprehensive furniture, home décor and gift market in the Western United States, so we decided to tag an extra day onto the trip to attend.

The Las Vegas Furniture Market is one of the two big industry trade shows — High Point being the other — that you hear about constantly in our business. I had been wanting to get to this one but the timing never worked out until now.

This market features a unique cross-section of 4,000+ resources in more than 5 million square feet of product resources across 40 showroom floors and in 600 temporary exhibits. It would take two to three days to get through all of it, but you will find most of the same vendors at both markets. So, I made the most of the day I had to focus on strengthening existing relationships with vendors I had connected with at Highpoint Furniture Market and discovering a few new ones.

Among buyers from all 50 states and some 80 other countries, presenting housewares, seasonal and casual/outdoor resources, a few products and companies stood out for me.

A company by the name of Bluworld of Water, based in Orlando, Florida, designs, builds, installs and services water features, products, and systems. Water walls have become an increasingly popular feature in common areas of buildings, and we were impressed with what they had to offer.

We discovered Moe’s Furniture, a company with a distribution division in the Greater Vancouver Area. They design modern and contemporary furniture for kitchens, dining rooms and bedrooms, but what we loved most was their cool condo-size upholsteries.

Las Vegas Market Winter 2017 was their largest winter market ever in terms of overall attendance and brands represented, reflecting the health of the industry. We have already started using a couple of vendors that I connected with one this trip, so it was definitely a successful market for us as well.

Sunpan Offers Unique and Versatile Products for Commercial and Residential Settings

No Comments

Sunpan is one of our preferred furniture manufacturers. A fast-growing, global furniture company, based in Toronto, Ontario, they specialize in the design and manufacture of transitional and contemporary furnishings from hard goods and dining to upholstery and art.

We were first introduced to Sunpan’s products through the High Point Market in North Carolina and the Canadian Furniture Show (formerly The Canadian Home Furnishings Market) eight years ago, and we have been working with them ever since.

We like working with Sunpan products because they are thoughtfully designed and crafted by renowned international designers to create a unique and versatile line of products that suits our business’ commercial and residential project needs and budgets.

101494The ultra-contemporary Gotham collection is a popular choice for our interior designers. We have furnished several projects with the Gotham occasional chairs and console tables (pictured here), which are constructed of high quality stainless steel and clear tempered glass.

If you ever get the opportunity to attend the High Point Market or the Canadian Furniture Show, be sure to check them out. They have a state-of-the-art 20,000 square foot showroom in High Point that is open during the annual Spring and Fall Markets.

We recently attended the Fall 2016 Market where their showroom inspired visitors and showcased the latest trends like brown marble; dark, rich tones; stunning antique brass, timeless golds and modern stainless steel finishes; and beautiful, functional pieces like end tables and hassocks in animal hides.

The Sunpan showroom was definitely a “show-stopper” and they shared some of the best highlights in their blog. Check it out!
