Two More Casual Manufacturers
Commit to Las Vegas Market


Outdoor furniture producer America’s Backyards & Outdoor Living has signed a major lease for more than 6,500 sq. ft. of permanent showroom space at the Las Vegas Market starting in August 2015.

Casual furniture manufacturer Poly-Wood has also signed a major lease for nearly 4,200 sq. ft. of permanent showroom space at the Las Vegas Market starting in August 2015.

As part of the Casual Furnishings category launch taking place at the Summer 2015 Market in Las Vegas, these two companies join casual manufacturers Agio, Hanamint, Tommy Bahama and OW Lee, who have already committed to the market with long-term leases.

These new companies join the casual/outdoor manufacturers already showing at Las Vegas Market including Emerald Home Furnishings, Emerald Outdoor, Kannoa, King’s Rattan, Original Charleston Bedwing, Patio Logic, Panama Jack, Pelican Reef, Ratana Home & Floral, Skyline Design, Somers, Sunny Designs, Sunset West USA, Veneman Collections and Zuo Modern.

Summer Las Vegas Market, which runs from August 2-6, 2015, will debut 250,000 sq. ft. of fully built-out permanent showroom and temporary exhibit space on floors 12 and 13 in Building C devoted to the casual/outdoor category.

“Interest in the Las Vegas casual/outdoor launch continues to gain momentum, with more and more manufacturers signing leases,” said Craig Staack, vice president of home furnishings leasing for International Market Centers. “Bringing the outdoor category to a dedicated space at Market provides excellent synergies for furniture buyers looking for additional offerings to complement their product mix. It’s a convenient shopping experience for buyers as well, and the timing is ideal to acquire inventory for the summer selling cycle.”


L to R: Raspberry, Mist, and Denim by Joe Ruggiero.

Fashion-Inspired Sunbrella Fabrics
by Joe Ruggiero


Leading home décor authority Joe Ruggiero celebrates the connection between interiors and fashion with new Sunbrella fabric designs during Fall High Point Market. Paying homage to fashion as it inspires home décor, the collection features soft, sophisticated colors and new patterns reminiscent of those found on the runway.

“The fabrics in my newest Sunbrella collection utilize color in a way that I never have before,” said Ruggiero, whose new designs are available through Miles Talbott.

“Just a hint of mint,” is how Ruggiero describes Mist. This soft, coastal shade pairs well with other colors without being overwhelming. Denim, the color that never seems to go out of style, works nicely with Indigo, one of Ruggiero’s favorite timeless shades. A staple in fashion, Denim translates well in the home. Last, and one of today’s most popular colors, Grey provides a serene, pleasing palette, especially when combined with Ivory.Seen on the runway as nude or blush, Cameo has a soft, peachy glow reminiscent of turn-of-the-century jewelry of the same name. Ruggiero interprets classic red, which has gone through so many different phases, as Raspberry, a muted tone ideal for interiors.

Inspired not only by the colors of the runway, Ruggiero drew from patterns and textures in fashion for his Market designs. Visions is an interpretation of menswear, playing on a salt and pepper tweed, and is available in Grey. Existing pattern Pebbles, inspired by the texture of men’s suiting, is now available in Ivory.

“I’ve traveled the world and had the opportunity to see the evolution of and correlation between the runways and home décor,” Ruggiero said. “Fashion has always been a passion of mine and I’m excited to share how it can be translated to stylish, refined interiors.”

Sculptura Spring Chair and Classic Occasional Chair

Retro Resurgence Sparks
Woodard’s Iconic Sculptura Revival

Coppell, Texas

Hermes scarves, Ferraris, Mies van der Rohe architecture – all coveted for their forward-looking style, at once totally modern and assuredly timeless. In 1956 Woodard produced an outdoor collection that, by its very design and continued demand, took its rightful place among furniture’s iconic styles – Sculptura.

With molded, woven wire as its framework, Sculptura moved outdoor furnishings of the day from uninspired and utilitarian to sleek, modern and technically advanced. When you were draped in a Sculptura chair you became a little cooler, a bit sexier, more the Mad Men version of yourself.

Today’s Sculptura was unveiled at the 2014 Casual Market, and still sports its curvaceous wire mesh arms, back and seat, but with more generous proportions to meet the 21st century ideal of comfort. Edited to four statement pieces – the classic occasional chair, a spring chair, side table, and a stunning two-seat bench – Sculptura demands attention wherever it is used. And, it goes virtually anywhere due to Woodard’s use of high-tech protective finishes that can withstand the un-friendliest weather conditions. 

The original made style history even as it was only available in a short list of finishes. Sculptura for 2015 is available in an eye-popping array of more than 30 colors and finishes, dressed with more than 200 outdoor-ready cushion fabric choices, providing endless design possibilities.

Style seekers can find Sculptura at fine outdoor and specialty retailers beginning in December.
