    Nine things I liked in Vegas and one thing I really hated

    Things I liked at the recent Las Vegas Market: The revamped showroom at Pure Talalay Bliss, formerly Pure LatexBliss. The showroom looked like an elegant art gallery, with compelling black-and-white photographs showing beautiful men and women leading active, luxurious lives. The latex beds shined in that setting. The new showroom at Protect-A-Bed. The ninth-floor showroom in Building B was expansive, and featured two striking lifestyle displays as you entered the room. Those displays set the tone for an airy presentation of products, which included a new smart pillow. The new “performance mattresses” at bedgear, which present a different take on ...

    Retailers continue to be challenged to achieve financial excellence

    Despite the number of indicators suggesting the furniture business should be robust — consumer confidence was up in January, gas prices are lower than any time this century and December housing starts grew 6.4% over 2014 — the industry continues to plug along at a low-single-digit growth pace.

    Vegas market trends: Dreams, smart beds, online marketing

    The major bedding themes at the Las Vegas Market were: Celebrating consumer trust, dreaming in Black, Facebook likes, Optimized Sleep and an Intelligent new bedding line. Those, at least, were the themes that were written in very big type in banners greeting mattress buyers at last week’s Las Vegas Market. Once again I took notice of those banners, which set the stage for this bedding-heavy market. The messaging does provide an overview of some key product and marketing directions in the industry these days. And bedding, as that assortment of banners indicates, continues to loom large in Las Vegas ...

    Las Vegas Market reflects optimism, emphasis on ‘lifestyle’ presentation

    If the start of the market season is any indication, 2016 is going to be a very good year. Atlanta, Dallas and last week’s Las Vegas Market all had good turnouts, and despite some initial slowness at retail in early January, there is a solid sense of optimism around the rest of the selling year. Even major weather problems across the East Coast couldn’t keep people from showing up ready to shop in Vegas last week, though it did cause some delays. Guess it just shows how badly people wanted to get there. When all was said and ...
