“Las Vegas Market is continuing to attract the top talent in the furniture industry, as leading firms demonstrate their commitment to business expansion with major showroom expansions,” said Ryan Mahoney, Senior Vice President of Furniture Leasing, International Market Centers. “Furniture of America is building upon the tremendous growth the company has achieved through Las Vegas Market over the past few years with its significant expansion on B11. As the leading furniture market in the western United States and the nation’s fastest growing gift and home décor market, Las Vegas Market is proud to partner with growth-oriented, forward-thinking firms like Furniture of America to fulfill business growth objectives.”

Furniture of America Senior VP of Marketing Rocky Young said the new space will allow the U.S-based company to showcase its full line of promotional to mid-priced furniture, including living room, dining room, bedroom, upholstery, bedding, youth and outdoor furniture as well as accent and lighting.

“Furniture of America’s business has exploded with high double-digit growth every year and at times, overwhelming product demand,” Young said. “The planned showroom expansion is one of a number of adjustments we have been making to keep up with our ever growing customer needs. This past Summer Market, our Las Vegas showroom had its highest foot traffic ever. With our fast U.S. and international businesses growth, we feel that our new 70,000-square-foot space — more than double our previous 28,000-square-foot location — will allow us to better serve both existing and new customers with a larger and better selection of products and further build upon our long and successful partnership with Las Vegas Market.”
