First Look Summer 2018: WHOLEHEARTED
Las Vegas Market’s exclusive FIRST LOOK trends program presents WHOLEHEARTED, a satisfying and approachable color presentation that builds on a past showcase of lush greens, mixed metals, and bright white accents.
This season, WHOLEHEARTED adds more hues to the mix, namely blues and purples — especially the hearty varieties that recall ripe figs; vitelotte and other gourmet tubers; and beets and other nutritious taproots.
Together, the colors are wholesome and fresh, just like a salad or stew served at your favorite farm-to-table restaurant. Why these hues in home furnishings right now? After seasons of all-white spaces and rooms done up in light and airy pastels, hearty hues add welcome weight and practical beauty — these colors can ground a space that might seem too bright or too quiet.
Some of the products you’ll see in the WHOLEHEARTED vignette — on display July 29 - Aug. 2 in the Grand Plaza Courtyard — as well as the FIRST LOOK companion guide:
Look for Betty sofa from Porter Designs. This Mid-Century silhouette is covered in a deep burgundy crushed velvet microfiber and features vertical channel tufting, sloping arms and tapered espresso legs.
Art Trends’ generously sized high-gloss abstracts — each in this wall decor series of four measures 36 inches wide by 48 inches high — are treated with the company’s GLO material which adds a unique luminosity. Spot two examples this summer in the FIRST LOOK displays.
Fashion Angels’ Magic sequin belt bags dazzle — with a swipe of the hand, the iridescent sequins change colors in a range of cool blues and dreamy purples. (Choose from four colorways.) The scattered sequins are on a timeless black velvet bag that’s large enough to hold a phone, cash, lip gloss and more.
Pattern, texture and color align on Jaipur Living’s Dash area rug. Gold highlights accentuate deep blues on this refreshed geometric, which is power-loomed from 100 percent polypropylene for durability.
Meanwhile, Capel Rugs’ Banaz - Ezine Gypsy Red and KAS Rugs’ Papillon 4528 present transitional area rug designs that serve a hearty mixture of blues, purples and blue-greens.
See WHOLEHEARTED, as well as PURIFY, CELEBRATE! and MICRO, this summer in the Grand Plaza Courtyard — just look for the furling FIRST LOOK flags. Also, be sure to pick up your copy of the FIRST LOOK companion guide at the main entrances of all Las Vegas Market buildings.
