The 500+ home showroom offerings at World Market Center Las Vegas continue to expand with 11 new, expanded and relocated showrooms opening for the January 23-27, 2022 Las Vegas Market. Two of the new showrooms – Hooker Furnishings and Howard Elliott Collection – also join the 30+ open year-round designer showrooms in the Las Vegas Design Center (LVDC).
“Top home accent brands recognize the unmatched opportunity to reach the west coast design and retail community through World Market Center Las Vegas both through the semi-annual Las Vegas Market and throughout the year at our comprehensive Las Vegas Design Center,” said Scott Eckman, International Market Centers (IMC) executive vice president, chief revenue officer. “These new and expanded showrooms bring even more design-driven product to Las Vegas, amplifying the expansive cross-category product mix that attracts discerning home décor buyers.”
Updates to home resources open for Las Vegas Market are found throughout Buildings A, B and C.
Three new cross-category showrooms will debut in Winter 2022: Vahallan (high-end designer wallcoverings) on C5 plus Howard Elliott Collection (decorative mirrors, accessories, accent furniture, wall art and pillows/poufs) and Hooker Furnishings (case goods, leather furniture and fabric-upholstered furniture from Hooker Furniture, Sam Moore, Bradington-Young and MARQ brands) – its first outside of High Point, NC – on A2, adding more than 15,000 square feet of new resources to the LVDC.
“Howard Elliott Collection is excited to expand our presence to the Las Vegas Design Center,” said President Brian Berk. “The new showroom gives us the opportunity to highlight the breadth of product that we offer to the home furnishings industry. We look forward to becoming a ‘go-to’ resource for the Design Trade residing in the western region of the country.”
Six brands making major expansion are Alder & Tweed Furniture (occasional furniture and accessories) tripling its space on B1; Barlogoa Studios (fine art photography) growing on C5; Classic Home (handcrafted and sustainable furnishings) more than doubling on C3; Dovetail (handmade furniture, accessories and textiles) expanding by more than 50% on B1; Kuka North America (upholstered home furnishings) more than tripling on B1; and Zodax (home accessories) growing on C5. Additionally, HomeView Design (home accessories) relocates to C4.
Also planned for Winter 2022 is a total remodel of the Brayden and Brooks (one-of-a-kind canvas signs) showroom on C5. The PLATIN America Pavilion, which will act as an incubator for Latin American furniture and home décor brands as they prepare to transition to permanent spaces, officially opens with 40+ resources on A4.
“Our goal is to generate value for the members of the PLATIN America alliance by synchronizing the interests of buyers and sellers from Latin America and the United States,” said Daniel Rios, COO. “The PLATIN America Pavilion is strategically located at Las Vegas Market to showcase the best selection of manufactures, artists and artisans from Latin America via the market with the highest growth of buyers in the United States.”
