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.
#10 Trash Is Art
We happened across this installation for the first time this year. These creatives take the waste used for packaging all of the furniture and accessories that vendors bring to market and turn it into art. We love the recycle, reuse, repurpose attitude!!
#9 Shiny Metallics with Texture
#8 The Evolution of Art
We’ve noticed something with art trends that may be gracing the walls of your home very soon. Art is much more than a two dimensional piece these days- take this lenticular picture for example. Art is truly evolving!
We’re also seeing shadow box-type wall frames showcasing 3d art and our personal fave, neon signs!
#7 Oversized Simplicity
We love a good light fixture (or two) centered over a dining table. Oversized, yet simple light fixtures made a statement this year at Market. Take these golden fixtures from Dovetail as proof.
Or this stunning fixture from Global Views:
#6 Bold Upholstery
Pops of color seemed to show up in unexpected places. Hot pink ottomans? Yes, please! Worlds Away nailed it, yet again.
#5 Best of the West
Some of our favorite moments at every market are learning moments. Our team attended the Best of the West presentation where five successful and talented designers/teams shared their ideas and tips with us. If you’re looking for inspirational designers to follow along with (besides team LED of course) try our friends Amber Interiors, Brooke Wagner Design, Brian Paquette Interiors, Marie Flanigan Interiors, and Studio Life.Style.
A few points we brought home from them:
The west coast is lucky to have a connection with nature. With beautiful weather comes a connection with the outside world and the perfect opportunity to bring it inside.
Start with three resources to find inspiration for your home can come from books. Try books about architecture, fine art, interior design and of course, travel.
Let everything around you inspire you and cultivate it in a timeless manner. Push boundaries!
#4 LVSH Panel
We’re thrilled to be a part of the first ever Las Vegas Showcase House. There was a panel discussion answering questions about LVSH and presenting more about the design. Every step is so exciting!
#3 Metallics in Your Future
Good news! Metallics are here to stay. They’re changing to include much more than the basic golds and silvers however, take a look at these different finishes we came across- they’re beautiful! We love the bold move of the metallic heart tiles too, very fun.
We captured a few pieces that showcased the channeling trend in upholstery just for you. We think the masculine, rustic vibe paired with leather is a killer combo.
#1 The Novogratz
You may recognize them from their tv show Home by Novogratz, but this power couple is just as friendly and personable in real life as they appear on screen. Team LED met up with them in the Momeni showroom and talked about their stellar new rug line as they signed their new book “Beachside Bohemian“.
“No one will ever tell you to jump off the highest bridge- you have to decide to do it for yourself”- thanks for the inspriation Novogratz!
We’ll see you in six more months LVMKT!
