Vegas Market To Host Green Gables Launch
Las Vegas Market announced that longtime exhibitor Green Gables Furniture will launch the Tim McClellan HOME collection during the Winter 2018 Las Vegas Market, January 28-February 1, 2018. McClellan, the popular 25-year veteran designer and host of DIY Network’s new show, Boomtown Builder, will be at Winter Market for two days — Sunday (1pm-5pm) and Monday (9am-11am and 2pm-5pm) — showcasing his furniture designs, pouring Bloody Mary’s at his copper top bar, signing autographs, taking pictures and telling tales.
“Las Vegas Market has proven to be the ideal venue for design-driven home furnishings companies to present highly-styled and cutting-edge product options to retailers, including exciting new brands such as Tim McClellan HOME,” said Scott Eckman, President of Furniture and Home Décor Leasing/ Chief Strategy Officer, International Market Centers. “As the leading furniture, home decor and gift destination in the western United States, Las Vegas Market features the top lines in all furniture categories, representing a range of styles from rustic to modern and a range of price points from promotional to high-end.”
The Tim McClellan HOME collection, featuring upholstery and casegoods, encompasses both rustic décor as well as a more modernized and sleek industrial style, with pieces that will be equally at home in a Montana cabin or a Manhattan loft. Located on B1, Green Gables’ 3,884- square-foot showroom features complete collections of furniture and accessories for the dining room, bedroom, office and living room.
“Tim is a pioneer and legend in the world of refined rustic design, reclaimed barn wood furniture, and mixed media designs using leather, copper, steel, iron, and exotic finishes; his work has been featured on HGTV, the DIY network, ABC, the Ellen Degeneres Show, Arizona Highways TV and CBS,” said Bob Rouse, president of Green Gables, based in Bradford, IL. “His style fits in well with Green Gables’ portfolio of furniture made from reclaimed and sustainable woods, proudly made in America and offering retailers a true slice of American history.”
McClellan, of Jerome, AZ, is a popular television personality, founder and former owner of Western Heritage Furniture and hosts an expanding round table video series (https://youtu.be/mEk6wMfEdkw) that has generated nearly 2 million views on YouTube.
McClellan said he is going to “break some design rules and knock this one out of the park,” at the Las Vegas Market. “Winter Market is an opportunity for retailers to get onboard and enjoy this ride from the beginning,” he said. “I chose Las Vegas for several reasons: it’s close to home; it has been great to me in the past; the Winter Market weather is always good; and where else do you go to make a gamble on this scale. Only in Vegas!”
