Las Vegas Market presents 2020 Vision

Las Vegas Market said the popular trend program FIRST LOOK will showcase 2020 Vision, a color and trend forecast manifesting two broad themes – personal style and easy sophistication – at Summer 2019 Las Vegas Market. These themes will be on display in dynamic vignettes located in four Las Vegas Market campus locations: Building A lobby; Building B, WorldView on Sixteen; Building C, fourth floor; and in the Pavilions at Las Vegas Market.

“Las Vegas Market’s FIRST LOOK program is a key source for product trends for furniture, home décor and gift buyers and suppliers,” said Dorothy Belshaw, executive vice president, chief marketing and digital officer for International Market Centers. “Through displays, tours and a CEU-accredited seminar, FIRST LOOK showcases the breadth and depth of on-trend product that Las Vegas Market has to offer.”

FIRST LOOK’s “2020 Vision” is a collective of on-trend products and headlining hues – all of which will be reinforced in the curated displays; a CEU-accredited educational seminar on July 29; in an at-Market resource guide publication; and in two FIRST LOOK showroom tours: home furnishings on July 29; and gift on July 30. Marketgoers will see examples of micro themes across the gift and home spectrum, including maximalist decorating, color drenching, menswear influences, new organics for baby, gifts for her, gifts for tweens, artisan-made personal accessories and more.

Below is a brief description of the four vignettes, as well as a sampling of products representative of each:

The maximalist interior in the Building A lobby nods to personal style and home curation – it’s an urban-inspired space for an imagined city dweller. Featured product categories include artful furniture and decorative accessories, statement-making lighting, and barware.

Marketgoers will find a menswear-inspired vignette in the FIRST LOOK display at WorldView on Sixteen. Think business casual meets cool neutrals and playful novelties. Nearby, the Fringe Elements presentation is casual elegance at its best — here, the story is texture and tactility. An outdoor sitting area, complete with greenhouse, completes the display.

Color drenching, a technique that experiments with tint and shade, is showcased in the display on the fourth floor of Building C. Teal is used as a starting point for this sophisticated, yet youthful, approach to color and home decorating. Also in this display are stationery, ornaments and wallpaper.

FIRST LOOK’S future-focused color palette is the backdrop for the Pavilions display. Artisan-made personal accessories, modern home accents, jewelry for her, and gifts for baby are category highlights.
