Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, July 23, 2012
LAS VEGAS — Case goods and upholstery source AICO/Amini Innovation Corp. will welcome actress and artist Jane Seymour in its Las Vegas Market showroom the first two days of next week's market.
She'll join AICO CEO Michael Amini in the space, World Market Center C-1601, on Monday and Tuesday, July 30-31, from 10 a.m. to noon and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
Two brand new top-of-bed collections from the Michael Amini and Jane Seymour design collaboration will be unveiled, both inspired by Seymour's water color paintings. Applied fine artistry in rich mandarin orange and teal are the focal point of the Koi collection, and a bold black and white outline on muslin adorn the Lily collection, the company said.
While visiting with customers, Seymour will demonstrate how she brings inspiration to life with water color.
"This market, we are putting an even greater emphasis on helping retailers set the stage for success. Jane shares Michael's passion for creating theater with dynamic presentations to ignite the senses, and stimulate creativity," said Chuck Reilly, AICO's senior vice president sales and marketing. "It is a true testament of her dedication to our company, our customers and the industry that she attends the markets and engages with our customers."
The design collaboration between Michael Amini and Jane Seymour has been globally successful, according to AICO.
"We have exceeded high expectations with this collection as it has created a fresh new category for our customers and given them the opportunity to create a ‘wow' factor on their floors," Reilly said. Additions to the Amini Seymour collaboration include a new black finish for Hollywood Swank named Starry Night, as well as new items in Overture and Beverly Blvd.
Also showing for the first time in Las Vegas are the Bella Cera and Victoria Palace collections, both from the Michael Amini Original Designs series. Bella Cera is a rustic Italian-inspired design, and Victoria Palace is a stately collection embodied with elements of European architecture. The company also said it will show a dramatic new version of the popular Lavelle collection in a warm wood finish called Melange.
