Summer Las Vegas Market moves in Eco-Friendly direction

Jun '08
The Summer 2008 Las Vegas Market will be emphasizing sustainability more than ever.

The home furnishings industry's most diverse eco-friendly assortments can be found in the lush, organic environment of the Market's signature Living Green Pavilion, located on the fifth floor of the new Building C.

This is the third Market in which the World Market Center Las Vegas has gone green, by providing interested buyers with a centralized place to find eco-friendly products.

The Living Green Pavilion has been popular since its inception, and is attracting more cutting-edge sellers than ever before.

“All products shown inside the Living Green Pavilion have a legitimate eco-story. Some products are made from recycled materials, others from FSC-certified wood or other sustainably harvested materials,” says Sustainable Furniture Council board member and Living Green Pavilion Leasing Manager, Jeffrey Hiller. “It's going to be a truly green showcase.”

Within the Living Green Pavilion, the green theme spans contemporary, transitional and traditional styles in virtually all segments, including upholstery, case goods, accent furniture, accessories and bedding.

The Market will also welcome many first-time exhibitors, such as Harden Furniture, a full-line manufacturer that has been sourcing materials and building furniture in upstate New York for more than a century.

Harden was one of the first to be awarded Silver Exemplary Status by the Sustainable Furniture Council earlier this year.
