Home and Living likes to be at the forefront of new ideas, so hot on the heels of the 2012 Winter Las Vegas Market, a number of unique trends have emerged from scouring the more than 5 million square feet of exhibit space at World Market Center Las Vegas. With help from the Market then, we have compiled some of these trends for our Readers.
Equestrian furnishings and decorative accessories once again dominated the Winter Las Vegas Market at World Market Center Las Vegas.
From life-sized equestrian-inspired lights introduced as part of Priscilla Presley’s debut home collection to stone statues and stunning photographs and paintings, the stallion was spotted in countless showrooms throughout market, paying homage to this timeless icon.
In the Slideshow are some images of what was found at Market and what will be in stores next season.
Geometric design reigned supreme at the Winter Las Vegas Market, dominating showrooms across World Market Center Las Vegas.
Geometric patterns were at the top of the design trend list and were seen in a variety of items from rugs and furnishings to clean-lined tables, lamps, stools and decorative pillows and cushions—harkening back to the days of Ancient Greece when the mysterious mathematics of geometry was one of the most studied and earliest sciences.
Retro and Mid Century Furniture
Styles come and go, and come again. And at the Winter Las Vegas Market, retro and mid century furniture proved to be a trend that is coming around again.
Known for its simplicity, the retro and mid century style influenced pieces were seen throughout Market, from bold fabric choices to dark woods and clean, solid lines. The minimalist idea that inspired retro and mid century furniture in the past, was rediscovered and can be seen in the furniture photos found in our slideshow.
Reclaimed and Recycled Wood
What’s old is new again. Recycled and reclaimed wood was seen giving new life to furniture throughout the show rooms at Winter Market.
Classic Home’s show room gave old wood a second use. Reclaimed wood was used in everything from tables and chairs to dressers and cupboards. Old wood is used to recreate new furniture for the spring season.
At this year’s Winter Market, Pantone announced its “color of the year” as Tangerine Tango—and there was no shortage of the mood-boosting color throughout the Las Vegas showrooms. Look at a few images of accent pieces great for brightening any room (in slideshow, please).
A common thread between many of this season’s lines was trunks. Versatile, stylish and multi-purpose, trunks appeared in modern lacquered colors as well as vintage French white and even leather. The size and shape varied from showroom to showroom, but one thing is for sure—trunks are the decorating piece of the spring.
