5 Trends to Take Seriously
from the Las Vegas Market

Before the Las Vegas Market even closed, organizers were already thrilled by the turnout for the four-day event. Exhibitors saw large orders, and total attendance exceeded the previous market in April. All this despite continued Delta variant complications.

Buyers attending the Las Vegas Market were deeply interested in scoring fresh, on-trend products. New décor items and furnishings have been slow to arrive in stores for over a year now, creating a lot of pent-up demand. While a bit of everything was certainly on offer this summer, sharp-eyed trend spotters called out these five prominent design features for helping define the show.


Faux fur and fluffy

Pieces that looked and felt soft were a hit. And that shouldn’t be all that surprising. The nice-to-touch trend has been on fire since the early days of the pandemic, as consumers continue to prioritize coziness. From fluffy accent pillows and rugs to full-blown faux-fur furniture, it was all having a moment in Las Vegas.

Check out this Regina Andrews table lamp example of the fluffy trend, achieved with a flamboyant spray of ostrich feathers. And for something infinitely touchable, these poufs by Moe's Home Collection and Surya are just the thing.


Flange finishing

In quite a few different exhibits upholstered sofas and chairs were feeling the flange. It’s a finishing technique where the upholstery seams push outward instead of inward, and it literally stands in contrast to the unbroken, curving lines otherwise dominating furnishings at the moment. And that gives this subtle design detail an outsized impact.

This loveseat sectional by Bobby Berk for A.R.T. Furniture is a beautiful, understated example of the technique. Meanwhile, this Chiavari modular sectional by World Interiors boldly draws your eye to the flange detail through the natural color contrast.


Soft blues and warm earthy hues

These complementary shades were especially present in textiles, pottery and wall art. Blues ranged from powdery to naturalistic ocean tones, and the earthy shades included dusty pinks, terra cottas and golden oranges.

Combined with the warmer neutrals and whites that were also prevalent throughout the market, it was a color scheme particularly designed to satisfy Japandi sensibilities.

This powder blue ceramic table lamp with crane-like details by Currey & Company nails both the trend itself and Japandi association. For decor that integrates both shades, check out the gorgeous Rorshach indigo blue lacquer mirror by Jamie Young Company.


Caged pendant lights

While the adage says to not hide your light in a basket, the interior design world didn’t seem to get that memo this summer. Bell-shaped pendant lights with a basket or caged effect were featured in several exhibits. These fixtures were constructed of either natural rattan or wire, and tended to use organic, curving shapes.

For a unique variation on the rattan look, check out these jute-thread designs by Crystorama Lighting Group. The trend can also be extended to sconce lighting, like with these charming fixtures by Surya.


Maximalism persists

From exuberant gallery walls to oversized floral displays and multi-layered textiles, exhibitors embraced staging that was anything but minimal this year. Layered designs with plenty of texture and pattern were key to drawing in buyers looking to satisfy a growing demand for unique, attention-drawing décor.

Eye-catching gold and bronze pieces were a big part of the look, such as this Palm Island Lamp by Wildwood Lamps. Bright, exuberant walls were another major factor, like this striking floral mural by Rifle Paper Co. Layered details included pillows and rugs, like these pieces from Surya and Momeni. And finally, a bold central piece to center the space, like this cocktail table by Bernhardt.
