Codarus West to show at Vegas Gift+Home
Part of Expanding soft home presence
January 4, 2013,
At the upcoming market, which takes place Jan. 28-Feb. 1, Codarus will showcase better home fashions - including Dash and Albert and Pine Cone Hill - as well as a wide range of better home accessories, lamps and upholstery - Amy Howard Home, Barbara Cosgrove Lamps, Benson Cobb Studios and Kim Salmela Atelier - as part of Las Vegas Market's new "C3 Collection."
The new "C3 Collection" will be a concentration of 25 better home goods suppliers on the third floor of the World Market Center's Building C, with further refinements to the B3 Collection of 20+ high-end home resources that debuted in summer 2012. To facilitate shopping and sourcing of better home products and to further future expansion of the category, a bridge links C3 and B3.
"The Las Vegas Market has witnessed exponential - and unprecedented - gains in better home goods, and in just 12 months has grown dramatically from just five companies in 15,000 square feet of space to 45 companies in 200,000 square feet of space," said Lee Hershberg, vp, home décor for International Market Centers (IMC). "By merchandising these resources together on two floors (B3 and C3) of the World Market Center, we have set a new industry standard for the qualitative and quantitative presentation of better home goods."
The Las Vegas Market "gives us a base from which to expand our home and hospitality industry sales and will nicely complement our existing showrooms in High Point and Dallas, and sales operations across the Midwest, south central and southeast regions of the U.S.," said Cody Hutcheson, Codarus principal.
Anchor tenants for the "C3" debut are: Art Classics, Bliss Studio, Cisco, Classic Home, Couture Lamps, Design Legacy by Kelly O'Neal, Etoffe Makara, Feizy Rugs, Guildmaster, Jeffan, Jesco Lighting, Karastan, Leftbank Art, Light & Living, Natural Curiosities, Oriental Weavers, Peninsula Home, Pol Art, Santangelo Lighting & Design, Selamat and Thumprints. In January, Europe 2 You, joins B3's 20+ high-end home resources which include: Arteriors, Best Slip Cover, Blue Ocean Traders, Chandra Rugs, Daniel Stuart Studio, Go Home, Lazy Susan, Made Goods, Noir, Paragon, Surya and Wendover Art Group.
