Las Vegas Market Readies Casual Furniture Debut

International Market Centers has officially launched the Las Vegas Market casual furnishings operation. The home furnishings industry will get to see the operation’s debut first hand at the Summer Las Vegas Market, running from Sunday, August 2, through Thursday, August 6.

The event inaugurates two dedicated floors, C-12 and C-13, of the Las Vegas World Market Center, which will offer a range of outdoor furnishings showrooms in both permanent and temporary presentations. Products available include furniture, umbrellas, rugs and outdoor fireplaces in 250,000 square feet of contiguous space, according to IMC.

As part of the casual furnishings initiative, designer, TV host and author Jamie Durie will present an outdoor-focused seminar, “Chic Garden Ideas from Down Under & Beyond” on Monday, August 3 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in Building C, room C-1288. IMC will hold a Casual Floor Launch Party on C-12 and C-13 later that day from 4 to 6 p.m., with Durie as featured guest. A ribbon cutting will take place on C-12 at 4 p.m.

“We’ve seen a significant increase among indoor retailers entering the outdoor market,” said IMC ‘s Craig Staack, vp/home furnishings leasing, “and they wanted to be able to shop at one market for both indoor and outdoor furniture. These two dedicated floors, C-12 and C-13, are incremental to the large number of resources already showing. Our buyers have been asking us to grow this category, and this summer, we delivered.”

Casual furniture exhibitors include Walker Edison and Z-Line Designs, vendors already familiar to Las Vegas show goers for their indoor mass-market furniture product lines, as well as:
