Vegas Market Announces People’s Choice Winners
Cross-category products from five Las Vegas Market exhibitors – Braid & Wood Design Studio, BrüMate, Lynn & Liana, Sunset West and Twin Star Home – are the inaugural People’s Choice winners in IMC’s new Market Snapshot program. The winners were selected from 48 finalist products via online voting in the weeks leading up to the Winter 2020 Las Vegas Market, which runs through Jan. 30, 2020.
“New product discovery is at the heart of IMC’s markets,” said Dorothy Belshaw, IMC chief marketing and digital officer. “Through this cross-market initiative in Las Vegas, High Point and Atlanta, we are honoring and celebrating the truly outstanding products that have most resonated with buyers as they seek the new products that will help them grow their businesses.”
Winter 2020 winning products are:
Furniture: Grigio Armless Club Chair by Sunset West. Sunset West reimagines one of the most iconic silhouettes of the last century. Rendered in a powder-coated aluminum frame and wrapped with premium, all-weather olefin rope in an open weave, the gray tones in the chair reflect the origins of the grape founded by “The Gray Monk” in northern Italy.
