November 25th, 2014News Release: Las Vegas Market Confirms Four New Tenants For C5 Launch
Las Vegas Market announced today that four leading suppliers—Auskin, Chive, Pheromone and Woven Workz—are the latest to confirm their participation in the Winter 2015 debut of C5, the Market’s newest resource for high-end home décor, home textiles, and accessories. Launching six months earlier than originally scheduled, the premiere of a transformed C5 will debut as a hybrid presentation of permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits, running Sunday, January 18 through Thursday, January 22, 2015.
“Las Vegas Market is delighted to welcome another four charter tenants to C5, which is launching this winter with more than 30 boutique showrooms alongside 40,000 square feet of home décor and home textile temporary exhibition space,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers. “As the leading furniture, home décor and gift destination in the western United States, Las Vegas Market is committed to presenting the widest diversity of high quality home fashions in a comprehensive, multi-dimensional buying platform designed to appeal to today’s cross-category buyers and suppliers.”
The four new anchor tenants include Auskin, a major supplier of bedding and accessories made from sheepskin, wool and other natural fibers, opening a 978 square-foot showroom; Chive, a supplier of innovative and elegant vases in glass, plastic, aluminum, porcelain and ceramic, debuting a 1,700 square-foot showroom; Pheromone, a vendor of unique artwork incorporating exquisite natural artifacts from around the world, launching a 1,041 square-foot showroom; and Woven Workz, a manufacturer of elegantly-designed throws, blankets and accessories crafted from heavyweight chenille, mulberry silk, bamboo, luxurious faux fur and variegated knit yarns, opening a 500 square-foot showroom.
Originally planned for Summer 2015 as part of the third and final phase of Las Vegas Market’s three-year strategic growth plan for gift and home decor, the launch of C5 was accelerated in response to a combination of high occupancy levels on existing home décor floors, increased interest from vendors and overall leasing momentum. Previously announced charter C5 tenants include: Amity Home, taking a 1,000 square-foot showroom; Gold Leaf Design Group, opening a 3,400 square-foot showroom; Mitchell Black, with a 1,700 square-foot area; Pillow Bar, with a 560 square-foot space; and Watson & Co., debuting a 978 square-foot showroom.
The launch of a redesigned C5 moves Las Vegas Market substantially closer to the completion of its three-year strategic growth plan, a phased realignment of showroom spaces designed to create an unparalleled presentation of furniture, gift and home décor in the western United States. Since embarking on its growth plan in 2013, Las Vegas Market has experienced dramatic increases in the furniture, home décor and gift product categories, adding more than 850,000 square feet of new and expanded showrooms and more than 1,200 new lines. The final phase of this plan will include the launch of a new permanent showroom floor for gourmet housewares, tabletop and gift suppliers on floor C11, and the relocation of temporary exhibits from C5 and C11 floors to the Pavilions, a dedicated, free-standing venue on the Market campus.
