UFA Real Wood Furniture Showroom Returns To Las Vegas Market

Furniture World News on

UFA and the World Market Center Las Vegas Market® 1-5 February 2010, have completed arrangements for a showroom to be dedicated to exhibits by manufacturers of real wood custom finished furniture.   The showroom is B-1065 in Building B on the 10th floor where permanent showrooms for furniture closely align between buildings A, B and C. 

The 3,000 square ft. showroom will have 20 booths displaying real wood furniture from 7 exhibitors: Whitewood Industries, John Thomas Furniture, Mako Wood Furniture, Skog Furniture, National Bench Company, Monsoon Pacific and  Arizona Wall Beds

UFA’s success in managing a cooperative showroom during the 2010 Winter Market encouraged this year’s effort.  Current management at WMC, recognizing UFA’s ability to organize and successfully manage an industry oriented showroom, was very cooperative and resourceful in exploring alternatives.  This cooperative approach benefits the World Market Center by allowing   niche market manufacturers an opportunity to experience the Market and by offering attendees a wider range of products to see at the Market. 

UFA is an international trade association of retailers, manufacturers and sales organizations in the United Sates, Canada and the Caribbean.   UFA’s trademark certification program, Real Wood Furniture Finished Your Way®, provides brand support to members who provide consumers with quality real wood furniture along with opportunities for custom finishing.

With today’s trend in décor toward unique finishing effects and color, the offering of custom finishing at the retail level is an option that consumers find very appealing.

“UFA is pleased to provide this opportunity for its member manufacturers to interact with member and non member retailers at the Las Vegas Market” said UFA President, Tim Case.  “By combining forces with the Las Vegas World Market Center, we can offer convenient shopping for all product-lines found in the new generation of UFA’s Real Wood Furniture Finished Your Way® member stores.  In addition, we are confident that all home furnishings retailers attending the show will find value in products manufactured by our UFA member-manufacturers, many of whom offer finished wood furniture as well as unfinished furniture.”

UFA also announced that they will hold their 22nd annual trade show in the summer.  The 2012 Real Wood Furniture Finished Your Way® trade show will return to Orlando on June 12-13 and the show is open to all interested retailers.
