From Home Furnishing Business
OW Lee Commits to Vegas
As part of the Casual Furnishings category launch taking place at the Summer 2015 Market in Las Vegas, OW Lee joins leading casual manufacturers Agio, Hanamint and Tommy Bahama, who have already committed to the market with long-term leases. These new companies join the casual/outdoor manufacturers already showing at Las Vegas Market including Emerald Home Furnishings, Emerald Outdoor, Kannoa, King’s Rattan, Original Charleston Bedwing, Patio Logic, Panama Jack, Pelican Reef, Ratana Home & Floral, Skyline Design, Somers, Sunny Designs, Inc., Sunset West USA, Veneman Collections and Zuo Modern Inc.
Summer Las Vegas Market, which runs August 2-6, 2015, will debut 250,000 square feet of fully built-out permanent showroom and temporary exhibit space on the 12th and 13th floors in Building C devoted to the casual/outdoor category.
“Demand for exhibit space at the Las Vegas casual/outdoor launch is growing exponentially, with more and more manufacturers signing leases,” said Craig Staack, vice president of home furnishings leasing for International Market Centers. “With a dedicated space at Market exclusively for casual, furniture buyers recognize the benefit our venue provides--complementary offerings to augment their product mix in one location. It’s a convenient shopping experience for buyers; and the timing is ideal to acquire inventory for the summer selling season.”
For more than years, OW Lee, Ontario, Calif., has designed and produced fine, handcrafted casual furniture, as well as offering a line of customized fire pits.
