Adesso Inc. was part of the home decor exhibitor lineup at the International Home + Housewares Show earlier this month. However, the company, best known for lighting, showcased a range of products at the Chicago event, with organizational items getting conspicuous placement at its booth.
Unlike lighting and furniture shows, Paul Berk, Adesso vp/sales, said buyers at the Housewares Show are most likely to visit the vendor looking for organizational items including coat racks and standing mirrors with shelves built into the supporting structure. Even on the lighting side, Adesso lamps with built in shelves generate interest, with accent furniture getting some attention as well, particularly the utilitarian designs the company exhibited in Chicago.
