International Market Centers has commissioned furniture and accessories design firm Luna Bella to design and craft a large "jewel box" display case with a suspended, revolving chandelier to adorn the lobby of Building C at World Market Center Las Vegas.
The fixture, which will debut at the Jan. 26-30 Las Vegas Market, will spotlight specialty tabletop resources from C-One's cross-category showcase of permanent and temporary gift and home décor resources.
The wood, iron and glass oversized display case will be positioned in the front window at the entrance to Building C. The display will highlight an assortment of specialty tabletop and related accessories from new and existing C-One resources including Bodrum, Lenox, Skyros, Vietri, Waterford Wedgewood, Tamara Childs and others.
"Las Vegas Market commissioned this one-of-a-kind display piece to showcase the exceptional tabletop and decorative accessories presented on C-One," said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers. "We partnered with Luna Bella to create the piece given their truly exceptional design and creativity."
The display measures approximately 96 inches wide by 43 inches deep by 132 inches high, and is constructed of a combination of solid wood, laser cut iron, solid stock iron, iron tubing, glass and felt lining, accented by a crystal chandelier.
"The inspiration behind Luna Bella's design of the display cabinet came from Le Jardin des Plantes in Paris," Luna Bella designers and founders Nicolas Trujillo and Teresa Costa said in a joint statement. "Established in 1626, Le Jardin des Plantes is one of the oldest museums in the world dedicated to the science of the natural world. There were gorgeous display cabinets handcrafted of wood, glass and iron displaying historical artifacts dating back hundreds of years.
"The uniqueness of the design process is that this substantial piece is handcrafted, inspired from around the world, manufactured in the United States much like it was made over 200 years ago. One of our favorite quotes is, 'More is more,' by Anthony Duquette, and we have tried to capture this spirit within the design of this unique display case."
Established in 1995, Luna Bella produces lighting, clocks, and furniture handcrafted in the United States.
C-One features a curated collection of more than 45 leading tabletop, gift and home décor brands, including recently announced exhibitors Allan Copley Designs, Brodarick Design, Elizabeth Lucas Company, FermobUSA, Interior Illusions SkLO, Tronk Design and Trowbridge Gallery, as well as anchor tenants Alessi USA, Ann Gish, Fatboy USA, Gold Leaf Designs, Jonathan Adler, Michael Aram, Magisso North America LLC and Vietri.
