Las Vegas sets B-3 as new home accents destination

World market center Las Vegas is launching a newly merchandised and expanded presentation at the 2012 Summer Las Vegas Market. The new destination at World Market Center, located in Building B on the third floor (B-3), will be a combination of new lines to Las Vegas and hand-picked showrooms relocated from other buildings.
     A WMC press release describes B-3, which is 100% leased, as a "vibrant, must-visit location for buyers across all industry sectors from interior designers to furniture retailers to gift stores." Several educational and networking events will also be held throughout the week in B-3 showrooms.
     "Bringing together this caliber of resources in one easy-to-navigate area of the Las Vegas Market truly elevates the experience and offerings for design-centric buyers," said Lee Hershberg, vice president of home décor, International Market Centers. "We have a growing collection of better merchandise in Las Vegas, and concentrating these resources together on one floor will give buyers looking for the most up-to-date, on-trend presentation a fantastic experience. We believe this vibrant destination will attract additional trend-setters across all categories to Las Vegas and will be an immediate catalyst for growth."
     B-3 showrooms new to the market include Wendover Art, maker of unique and high-quality wall décor; Daniel Stuart Studio, purveyor of fine furnishings for the home with a specialization in high-end upholstery, bedding and decorative pillows; Best Slip Cover, a family-owned company with more than 50 years experience in the furniture and slipcover industry; Pacific Green Furniture, leading pioneer in Palmwood technology; Made Goods, provider of fine furnishings, lighting, mirrors and accessories; Furniture Classics, maker of solid wood, antique reproduction furniture; LuLu & Co., wholesale distributor of fine French products including linens, furniture, accessories, glassware and ceramics; and Blue Ocean Traders, wholesale importer of unique items and furnishings from around the world.
     "Las Vegas has always been a good market for us and we are thrilled to be a part of this new initiative," said Daniel Penciner, CEO of Daniel Stuart Studio. "The community of high design that is being created on B-3 will benefit both vendor and visitor and, we believe, will make a good market great."
     Tenants relocating to B-3 from other areas of Las Vegas Market include Lazy Susan, Noir, Go Home, Bougainvillea, D.B. Imports, Artisan House, Arteriors Home and Brownstone Furniture.
