First Look chills out this summer in "Water Signs," an exclusive vignette you'll spot at Las Vegas Market July 30-Aug. 3 in the Grand Plaza courtyard. We're showing beach- and pool-friendly accessories and all-weather furniture that's primed for private relaxation, or outdoor fun with friends and family.
Casual furniture provides the foundation for First Look's "Water Signs." Mid-Century influences cross the indoor/outdoor threshold; Abbyson's San Miguel mixed-material collection (spot the sofa and end table in our at-market vignette) illustrates. The San Miguel line is noteworthy for its mix of both warm and cool tones, too.
ZUO Modern's Regatta trolley bar cart, a classic teak silhouette that brings the party to guests, appears in our vignette. So, too, does Summer Classics' clean-lined teak Coast Collection.
LED lighting solutions empower homeowners to decorate and entertain outdoors in new ways, and OW Lee raises the bar even higher this summer with its new chat-height, 42-inch-high Zen fire pit. It brings together color, light and fire by way of an integrated LED lighting display that lets the homeowner choose from more than 1,600 color options.
Setting a mood begins by setting the table, too -- Las Vegas Market is packed with options for casual, all-weather dinnerware, glassware and serveware. Merritt Designs is just one summer standout: The melamine specialist is unveiling new holiday collections, Winter Sparkle and Cranberry. A new printing technique enhances texture and allows for impressive metallic sheen.
Hours of fun in the sun require inventive ways to keep beverages cool. Occasionally Made's Swig Collection — spot the company's best-selling colors in the Water Signs vignette — keeps cold beverages cold for up to nine hours thanks to the double-wall vacuum insulation. Going Stemless unveils new magnetic glass cocktail charms this summer in classic beach motifs. Another fun beverage solution: Vivajennz's beach bags. View the Lee Ann design in the Water Signs vignette; it unzips to hold a three-liter refillable beverage bag. It's up to the user if she fills its with juice for the kids or wine for the ladies!
