I got back from a quick trip to the World Market Center in Las Vegas where the winter furniture market is going on right now. I had never previously had a chance to go see the showrooms so I thought this was as good of a time as any. It is quite the ordeal! Three buildings comprise the Market with the Las Vegas Design Center and its permanent showrooms with many temporary exhibits there for the market week. I traipsed up and down the 11 floors of building A and the 16 floors each of Buildings B and C which left me exhausted by the end of day 2.
I did get to sit in on a synposium put on by the SFC on green design with a panel consisting of Kathy Ireland, Angelo Surmelis from HGTV and the president and publisher of Dwell magazine, Michela O’Connor Abrams. But more on that later.
Overall I think a great introduction for me to Market for when I need to return with specific needs for my clients.
