Las Vegas Market presents three FIRST LOOK Trends for Winter 2022

Las Vegas Market presents three all-new trends in its proprietary FIRST LOOK forecast – Forest, Preserve, Now Screening, and Together – for the Winter 2022 Las Vegas Market, Jan. 23-27, 2022 at World Market Center Las Vegas. These trends will come to life before and during the Market via programming, vignettes, a guidebook and more.

“The Winter 2022 FIRST LOOK trends explore top-of-mind subjects – sustainability and the environment, the impact of technology and the importance of gathering again – and their influence on the products consumers will purchase for themselves, others and their homes,” said Dorothy Belshaw, executive vice president, chief customer and marketing officer. “Through FIRST LOOK, Las Vegas Market transforms these high-level trends to actionable buying lists for retailers looking to maximize profits in 2022.”

Winter 2022 FIRST LOOK Trends

Forest, Preserve

FIRST LOOK ventures into the woods in search of hearty hues, captivating light effects and mindful rejuvenation. The result is Forest, Preserve, a reverential, grounded and multi-sensory display of neutrals, fresh fragrances and simplicity. Colors that recall the dimly lit forest floor dominate — nutty browns, flinty stone, vermillion reds and subtleties such as mycelium, lichen, mushroom and bark. Bronze, brass and gold metal finishes, meanwhile, emit a comforting glow. Forest, Preserve honors renewal and growth and at the same time it calls attention to the planet’s fragile, vulnerable ecosystems.

Now Screening

Online identities, fantasy game worlds, virtual adventuring, collectible digital art – Now Screening blends physical and digital in a color story that spans candy-crushing gaming hues to glowy neon brights. Now Screening flips the camera and brings on-screen hues to the physical world: power on, log in and be immersed in one of First Look’s most colorful presentations yet.


Dining spaces and festive gatherings are focus areas for Winter 2022, and for good reason: people are fearlessly celebrating again with family and friends. Together illustrates humanity — the desire for connection, celebration and kindness — while demonstrating the diversity of categories at Las Vegas Market. Housewares, dining and storage furniture, tabletop, seasonal, handmade and a full assortment of furnishings welcome one and all.

“The Winter 2022 edition of FIRST LOOK is one of our most thought-provoking and future-focused presentations yet,” explained FIRST LOOK curator, veteran magazine editor Julie Smith Vincenti of Nine Muses Media. “After finding the silver lining for almost two years, consumers are emerging with new awareness and sense of connectedness, as well as desires to spend and celebrate. The FIRST LOOK themes provide a framework for these post-pandemic priorities, moods and mindsets, and showcases products across all categories at Las Vegas Market.”

FIRST LOOK is the hallmark of Las Vegas Market’s unmatched interactive trend programming. Buyers will have the opportunity to explore products by Las Vegas Market exhibitors in a pre-market webinar on Tuesday, Jan. 11 at 1:00 p.m. PST; an at-market seminar on Monday, Jan. 24 at 11:00 a.m. PST; on tour on Tuesday, Jan. 25 at 11:00 a.m. PST; in trend vignettes across the World Market Center Las Vegas campus and in a digital guide. Together these experiences create a roadmap for buyers as they explore Las Vegas Market’s thousands of furniture, gift and home décor lines.
