Retail Editor 1 -- Home Textiles Today, January 20, 2012
Las Vegas - Domestic products and manufacturers will get special attention during the Winter 2012 Las Vegas Market later this month with the debut of its new "Made in U.S.A." pavilion.
Featuring American-made products from nearly 40 companies, the pavilion encompasses 5,000 square feet on the second floor of Building B. The mix will be comprised of U.S.-made furniture and home décor products and collections, "highlighting the growing trend toward American-made goods in the industry," Las Vegas Market noted.
This new pavilion follows the debut of a similar pavilion last October at the High Point Market. This new version will offer "manufacturers, buyers and designers who attend Las Vegas Market the opportunity to experience a West Coast version of the popular destination."
Manufacturers showcasing their domestically produced products in the pavilion will include ACME Furniture, Adagio Water Features, Anthony California, Best Home Furnishings, Capel Rugs, Fine Art Tapestries, Fireside Lodge Furniture Company, Four Hands, Furniture Traditions, Imagine That!, India House, Karastan Rugs, King's Rattan, Legends Furniture, Leggett & Platt Consumer Products Group, Manual Woodworkers & Weavers, Marshfield Furniture, Montana Woodworks, Omnia Leather Furniture, Pacific Coast Lighting, Peninsula Home Collection, Pure Country Rustic Décor, Reliant Ribbon, Rene Cazares/RC Furniture, Rowe Furniture, Simply Amish and Veneman.
Las Vegas Market will celebrate the pavilion with a "Party in the U.S.A." event Jan. 31 from 4 to 6 p.m. on the B2 floor. Attendees will be served "all-American" fare, including sliders, mac-n-cheese, special desserts and signature cocktails.
Las Vegas Market is set to run Jan. 30 through Feb. 3.
