LAS VEGAS - Alexa Hampton, interior designer and owner of New York design firm Mark Hampton LLC, will be recognized as the 2013 Design Icon during the winter Las Vegas Market.
     The award presentation will take place Jan. 30 and will be followed by remarks from Hampton, a trunk show of

her newest fabric and trim collection with Kravet, and a book signing.
     Hampton began her design career working with her father, designer Mark Hampton, at the firm he opened in 1976. After her father's death, she began running the firm and has since been included on several top 100 designers lists in publications such as Architectural Digest, House Beautiful and New York Magazine.
     "Design has always been my passion and I simply can't imagine working in any other industry," Hampton said. "I am flattered to join such a talented group of industry professionals and former Design Icon recipients, and I look forward to attending one of the most talked about markets of the year."
     Past Design Icon honorees include Vladimir Kagan, Juan Montoya, Vicente Wolf, Christopher Guy, Larry Laslo, Roger Thomas and Jaime Drake.
     "Design Icon is the centerpiece of our designer programming for the upcoming winter market (Jan. 28-Feb. 1), and as such, we are pleased to present Alexa Hampton as the recipient of our 2013 Design Icon award," said Paul Watson, vice president of design for International Market Centers, parent company of Las Vegas Market. "Her industry tenure, accomplishments and influence make her a natural fit for this award and we are most fortunate to have her present market attendees with highlights and influences of her illustrious career."

As the Upholstery/Style Editor for Furniture/Today, I spend my work hours studying the sloping curves of sofa frames, the intricacies of fabric and the nail head trim and button accents that function as jewelry on a piece of upholstery. I research the companies that bring these things together for retailers, and ultimately consumers, and interview industry leaders about their business strategies and where they think furniture is heading in the future. And when traveling, I provide a sneak peek at what I'm seeing, whether at international markets or in High Point or Las Vegas.

I look forward to sharing what I see and I hope you'll feel free to do the same. Email me at chodnett@furnituretoday.com or follow me on Twitter @CynthiaWHodnett.
