First Look Winter 2018: Easy Now
“Easy Now,” one of four First Look vignettes on display Jan. 28-Feb. 1 in the Grand Plaza Courtyard, connects three product categories that retail buyers and interior designers can conveniently shop at Las Vegas Market: casual dining, tabletop, and housewares.
Products featured in First Look’s Easy Now set the stage for a weekend brunch. And the backdrop for this casual dining and kitchen prep vignette? Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Color of the Year, Caliente AF-290, an energetic, fiery red that proves its versatility alongside a handful of finishes and materials, especially white.
Spot Mercana’s Stuart kitchen island, which is made from Indian mango wood and treated to a weathered sand-colored hue, in Easy Now. CAL Lighting’s Silverton fixture, meanwhile, mixes a cylindrical column of wood with a Deep Bronze-finished iron armature — the result is a modern form that’s forged for contemporary homeowners.
Manhattan Comfort’s compact Lund wine cabinet display and case is presented in a matte white finish. Zuo Modern’s Odin dining table is shown in a white finish, too, plus this on-point design boasts functionality borrowed from contract home furnishings. It has two built-in USB charging ports, which underscore consumers expectations about furniture functionality and pervasive technology, and offer a practical response to the ways modern families gather and spend time together.
Other products that put the “easy” in Easy Now: a new rapid-boil kettle from Capresso; Swedish dishcloths made from a long-lasting blend of wood cellulose and cotton; a mill from Peugeot that maximizes the nutritional benefits of flax, a nutritional superfood; and hot/cold beverage containers from Kyocera.
Look for these products in the Easy Now vignette, too: New Pacific Direct’s Darwin fabric-covered dining chair with bamboo legs; fun and festive kitchen textiles from Potluck Press; new dinnerware and glassware from Skyros Designs; and floorcoverings from Spicher and Company that hold up to kitchen prep work in heavily trafficked areas of the home.
See Easy Now— plus three additional trend vignettes — at Las Vegas Market, January 28 - February 1.
