The West Coast’s premiere destination for home furnishings and décor is back! Las Vegas Market is kicking off its summer schedule from July 29 – August 2. Designers, you’ll want to trust us on this one – this season is going to be even better than the last!
Las Vegas Market is where trendsetters go to discover what’s new, and the event sets the pace for what’s cool and cutting edge. This modern market experience is great for designers who want to make the most of the professional aspect – sourcing for clients, attending informative seminars while earning CEUs, and networking with the industry’s finest – while still enjoying the laid back vibe of the West Coast. As a designer, Las Vegas Market is where you’ll be able to see new product introductions and debuts from literally thousands of vendors. Talk about staying ahead of the game!
There are a few things that will be particularly memorable this season and we can’t wait to check out! Here’s what’s on our itinerary:
- Ahead of the Curve: An intimate and engaging panel discussion with Max Humphrey, founder of Portland-based Max Humphrey Interior Design, Laura Umansky, founder of Houston-based Laura U Interior Design, Austin-based Jennifer Leonard of Nifelle Design Fine Interiors, Solana Beach designer Kari Anderson of Intimate Living Interiors, and Kathryn Given, Design & Market Editor for Luxe Interiors + Design, as moderator. Each designer will shop the market, highlight their favorites, and share their insider tips for the season’s top trends.
- Best of the West: Think of this as the Who’s Who of West Coast interiors. This season includes a Jenny Komenda, of Little Green Notebook, Chelsea Shukov and Jamie Grobecker of Sugar Paper LA, Ryan Garvin of Ryan Garvin Photography, Kristen Forgione of The LifeStyled Company and Caitlin Wilson of Caitlin Wilson Design.
- Inside: Out… Outside: In: The one and only Justina Blakeney, along with Kerrie Kelly, Rafael Kalichstein, Joshua Rose, Lori Paranjape, Waynette Goodson and Jane Dagmi, will talk about the hottest new trend: the conjoining of interior design and exterior design.
Market isn’t all about events, however. There’s a lot of shopping to be done! Despite over 4,000 furniture and home décor lines on the 5 million-square-foot campus, finding that perfect piece will be easier than ever with their new website. An enhanced product search tool, which allows you to specify product category, style, even price point, is going to be a game changer. Before you even board your flight, you can outline the perfect schedule, mapping out your days to be as efficient as possible.
Of course, the best part about the Las Vegas Market is connecting with designers and industry friends from across the country. So register early and make plans with your Insta-friends. It’s going to be the social event of the summer (after party at Hakkasan anyone?!) and one that really will help excel your business as well as your relationships with industry pros.
