What a great way to begin my 2012 design career by attending the Las Vegas World Market Trade Show. And it was a fascinating experience. The first few days I networked with many people and attended interesting events and seminars. Having made my rounds to the showrooms that I had open accounts with and completed all appointments, I decided on my last day at the show to just explore and discover what was new. I quickly began to recognize recurring themes - horses, topography, and a riot of colorful fun. Here are a few of my favorites from Liora Manne, Surya, Guildmaster, Safavieh, and Global Views.
