Las Vegas Market Hottest Trends to Bet On (and others to fold)

Reading Time: 2 minutes

First of all, why Vegas?

Industry members from the home furnishing, gift, and design trades descended on Las Vegas in late July for the Las Vegas Market (LVMKT) Summer 2022 event where they were treated to the latest in furniture, bedding, casual/outdoor, home décor, and gift products from more than 4000 brands and exhibitors. From showrooms to programming, the LVMKT had plenty for members to experience and so many trends to introduce.

And lucky for you, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. These trends are too amazing to keep a secret so I’m sharing with you the LVMKT Trends to Bet On for the upcoming year and those trends you should definitely “fold.”

Hold ‘em! These trends are on the rise:

  • Relaxed Refinement: Best in Brass: While other finishes are still going strong, brass is continuing to be head of class.
  • Teak Peak: Whether used alongside metallic frames or pre-weathered for the aged, gray look without the passage of time, teak is having a star-studded moment and taking the forefront of some really gorgeous elements and pieces.
  • Individuality is Key: Designers are helping clients find their individual identity and using a diverse range of colors and styles to truly curate a one-of-a-kind look.

Brass does not need to be limited to hardware on your cabinets. Look for chair legs, lighting fixtures, cutlery and table top décor in our favorite metal.

Fold ‘em! These trends are on the way out:

  • Small Dining sets: People want to gather and be together. This trend speaks volumes about our dedication to gathering together again with smaller, 4-seat sets being replaced with 8-10 person sets. 
  • Severe Color Palettes: There is definitely still a time and place for using contrasts in design but muted colors like neutrals are replacing harsher color palettes.
  • Complex Looks: While the pendulum hasn’t swung fully to minimalism, the excess and saturation of maximalism has eased into a balanced, refined look.
  • Only Ornamental: People are looking for the elements in their home to serve a purpose beyond just looking good. As more designers marry comfort and style, the impractical is giving way to form and function.

Post-pandemic, people are making up for lost time and lost memories. Seating for 8 to 10 is just what the doctor ordered.

I’m excited to share the secrets from the most recent LVMKT and keep you updated on the trends to bet your money on and the ones that are ready to fold.
