Celebrity Designer Christopher Lowell Creates Integrated Merchandising Display For Lighting at Las Vegas Market

Furniture World News on

World Market Center Las Vegas, announced that it is taking an active role in showcasing innovative concepts that will help enhance the profiles of specialty segments.  The Market’s organizers enlisted renowned designer Christopher Lowell to create an integrated merchandising display for lighting and home accessory retailers. Illuminated: A Lighting &  Accessories Showcase for Success will be open daily during August Las Vegas Market, Aug. 2-6, in Building C-1096.

Lowell and his design team’s Las Vegas installation will provide lighting retailers some enlightening new ideas and teach them how to broaden their offerings to consumers while not only enhancing their lighting business but also creating a new home décor business. Attendees will learn how cross-merchandised products can enhance their retail environment, ultimately leading to stronger sales. The debut of this visual installation will be celebrated with a cocktail reception on Mon., Aug. 2 at 5:00 p.m.

“Lighting has become the latest must-have ‘home accessory’ and retailers have an opportunity to play up the consumer trend through low-footprint displays of pre-coordinated merchandise that convey that message on impact,” said Christopher Lowell.  “We want to show retailers that they can not only make money retailing these visual aids, but put across to their customers that they can play a more supportive role in their home design process than just supplying the product.”

“This not only elevates consumer confidence, but showcases the retailer as a greater home design authority opening the door to endless line-extension possibilities,” he added.
