Summer 2023 Las Vegas Market expands furniture resources
Las Vegas Market made six showroom updates, adding three furniture brands to nearly 40,000 square feet of showroom space, for the July 30-Aug. 3 show at World Market Center Las Vegas.
“IMC’s commitment to enhancing the overall home sourcing experience at Las Vegas Market is attracting top furnishings brands,” said Dorothy Belshaw, executive vice president and chief growth officer of International Market Centers (IMC). “Newcomers and expansions bring nearly 50,000 square feet of new showroom resources to Las Vegas Market this summer, signaling the market’s key position in the annual home furnishings industry calendar.”
IMC’s reorganization of home furnishings in Building A continues a restacking that began in January 2023 aimed to improve the shopability of the market’s 120-plus furniture and décor showrooms.
This July, Building A welcomes three furniture suppliers: Acme Furniture Industry, Inc. (bedroom, living room, dining, home office and outdoor furniture) in nearly 9,500 square feet, Crown Mark (bedroom, living room, dining room, home office and accessories) in nearly 19,500 square feet and Najarian Furniture Company (bedroom, dining, living room, occasional tables and youth furniture) in 9,000-plus square feet.
“We’ve decided to join Las Vegas Market in order to broaden our reach and see retailers who may not travel to High Point,” said Michael Lawrence, executive vice president of Najarian Furniture. “As a West Coast-based supplier, we feel it’s important to solidify our presence with dealers in our own backyard so to speak. Showing in Las Vegas will allow us to connect with these retailers as well as have additional conversations and show new product to retailers that do shop all markets.”
Lawrence estimates that 70% of the living room, stationary upholstery and occasional tables Najarian Furniture will show in Las Vegas will be brand new.
Other summer market updates in Building A are the BikaHom (bedroom furniture and mattresses) debut in a new 2,600-square-foot showroom and the Eureka Ergonomic (ergonomic gaming, living and working furniture) relocation and expansion into a new 4,000-square-foot showroom. In Building B, CABO (fabric sofas) has opened a new 2,700-square-foot furniture showroom.
Complementing the furniture permanent showrooms are the B2: Home Furnishings Temporaries, featuring 90 exhibitors.
Newcomers for summer 2023 include Artisan Leather (leather furnishings); Costway (premium home goods); Flash Furniture (home and office furnishings); Kasama Furniture (solid timber furniture); and Zhongheng Mattress Industry Co. (mattresses and bedding).
Also in B2 is the return of the Ukrainian Pavilion, which moves to a more prominent place on the trade show floor as it presents six brands for the Summer 2023 Market. The Ukrainian Pavilion is a combined effort of brand Tivoli, the Ukrainian Entrepreneurship and Export Promotion Office, USAID and IMC to bring Ukrainian brands to the U.S.
