LAS VEGAS – At the summer Las Vegas Market, CDI Furniture expanded its line of furniture made with both sustainable and reclaimed wood species.

These included Medley, a clean-lined collection that includes about 20-pieces of bedroom, dining room and occasional pieces made in Vietnam with solid plantation grown acacia in a wire-brushed, distressed finish. Key pieces included a panel platform bed with a metal base retailing at $1,199 as well as companion case pieces and occasional tables.

The Sand collection, which also offers includes bedroom, dining and occasional, is made with solid pine in a natural weathered finish and features Moroccan-inspired carved details. Key pieces include a panel bed that retails at $1,199, a low coffee table that retails at $679 and an 84-inch leg dining table that retails at $899.

The company also is known for its mixed media looks seen in its Athena collection, made with solid pine and featuring off-white Carrera marble tops on a dining table and buffet and featuring wood bases available in contrasting black or weathered gray finishes. A double door bookcase display unit and single door display cabinet in the same collection both use the same marble for shelves.

Other unique pieces included four different cabinets featuring hand-inlaid camel bone patterns surrounded by resin. Retailing at $1,999, they come in four different colors including black, blue, pink and brown, raising the total SKU count to 16.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
