View From Vegas

Introductions at the Winter Las Vegas Market demonstrate that key trends driving development in mass-market furnishings aren’t going away but, rather, demand more dedicated focus. In other words, consumers like what they’ve seen emerge from the sector but want to see a continuing attention to fashion and more sophistication in execution. Vivid colors and stylish patterns are advancing, and mixed materials remain popular with consumers who are updating their home on a regular basis. Consumer response continues to encourage development of multifunctional and space saving furniture, as well as incorporation of new and novel components such as sound bars and electric fireplace mantels. Vendors are blending styling and design elements across a range of segments from construction to finishes, ensuring that furnishings have distinct looks but still suit a variety of homes.
