Another six months have passed since the last Market (can you believe that?!) and team LED braved the crowds and rainy downpour for Winter Market a few weeks ago. We’re bringing our ten favorite market moments to you! So sit back and enjoy from the comfort of your home or office, we’ll spare you the blisters of walking miles and miles to see everything.
Las Vegas Market boasts of wonderful events, happening parties and of course great design. We told you about our team’s favorite moments of LVMKT here, but we definitely need to elaborate on the amazing opportunity Lisa had to speak as part of the WithIt panel featuring social media celebrities at the Somerton Dwelling showroom at Las Vegas Market earlier this month. As a team, we’ve attended some pretty fantastic events hosted by The Media Matters – one being a farm to table dinner at the Woodard Furniture showroom along with elite editors from various publications during High Point Market last April.
Every six months the world’s most popular and upcoming design brands make the trek to Las Vegas to showcase their products. We’re so lucky to be right in the center of it all! Market was a stunner (as usual!) with a plethora of new vendors, trends and stylish décor we can’t wait to show you! So without further ado, these are our Top 10 Winter Market Moments!
For most of the country, temperatures have been dropping since late August. For us Las Vegans it’s still in the 80’s. Nonetheless, Fall is just around the corner… this coming Wednesday to be exact. With the change in seasons comes a natural shift in design. Here at APJ we have an idea of which trends should make their way into your home and those that will fade away with summer! Wanna know how? I wish I could say it’s because we’re psychic, but we’re not (boo!). It might have something to do with our huge appetite for design (hello my name is Lisa, I am addicted to Pinterest & Instagram), or possibly it’s because we attended the always popular seminar “Ahead of the Curve” during Las Vegas Market last month…
Earlier this weekend and last weekend we flooded you with tons of pictures from our week at Las Vegas Market! I sure hope you enjoyed viewing them as much as we enjoyed taking them. If you need to catch up, check out Market Roundup: Boutique Home Décor and Celebrating 10 Years Part 1. The fun isn’t over yet though, here are the rest of our findings.
Hats off to Las Vegas Market for hosting quite the party last week! With over 5 million square feet of showroom space to see in five days, we were busy bees. If you missed my Las Vegas Market Tips post, catch up HERE to see how we approached this challenging feat.
The Las Vegas Market Summer edition held at the Las Vegas Design Center is nearing in just two short weeks, we thought we’d pass along some helpful tips to those of you attending! With more new resources, showrooms and products than ever before, this will be the biggest and best market yet! There are over 5 million square feet of showroom space with outstanding products and inspiration, that means A LOT of walking! This brings us to Tip #1 … wear your most comfy shoes! (or bring a change of flats) Seriously, I’ve been there and it’s NOT a good idea to follow the “fashion over comfort” rule in this case. There’s nothing worse than hobbling from showroom to showroom in utter pain, it’s just not a good look. Something that goes hand in hand with this tip is to wear layers. Outside may be 110 degrees, however it can get chilly inside. A small summer scarf or wrap usually handles the AC draft.
Last week proved to be a busy one for design professionals alike. With five trade shows to choose from, the second annual Design and Construction Week kept Las Vegas hustling and bustling. My design assistant Amber and I attended Las Vegas Market since our focus is in interior design, decoration, and styling. Over 140 new showrooms were added to the roster, so we had a lot of square footage to cover. Here are the highlights of a few of my favorite products, showrooms, and vignettes.
It’s that time again, Design & Construction Week in Las Vegas! Having just one year under it’s belt, this year is proving to be the biggest and best yet. With five trade shows in five days, yes I said F I V E… Las Vegas is forecasting more than 125,00 design professionals to flood the city. I can’t wait to see all this week has to offer between new products, networking events, and educational opportunities. The best part of all, it takes place in my backyard.
