First impressions matter. That’s why Las Vegas Market’s debuting vendors have come prepared with product that’s not only new, but also noteworthy. Meet the Market newbies sure to leave a good (and lasting) impression.
Design Home, in Pavilion 2, seeks boundary-pushing makers and bespoke inventories. First-time tenants include custom seating manufacturer Dowel Furniture and female-led digital disruptor 1429 Mfg, which transfers artist prints onto U.S.-made solid wood furniture.
Also not to be missed is hand-painted wallcovering maker Vahallan, offering more than 400 customizable patterns, as it moves to a larger booth at Market. Also in Pavilion 2 is the first-ever Artexpo Las Vegas, which hosts more than 100 well-established galleries, artists and advisors from across the globe. Abstract painter Aleta Pippin and husband-wife gallerists Kris and Angela Gebhardt, all hot off of shows at the renowned Design Week Miami, are among the must-see vendors. (Don’t hit Artexpo—or any art fair, for that matter!—without first checking out our expert tips.)

Preview the handcrafted collection and whet your appetite for its future offerings: Trays, decorative boxes and candleholders are all on the horizon.
New and Improved
