Fresh back from the Vegas show, and Yes it was work!

Date Posted: 2016-02-24

Las Vegas Market has become the most comprehensive furniture, home décor and gift market in the Western United States. With over 2700 vendors and over 5 million square feet of showrooms and products to look at. Suppliers form all over the world are showing their wares here to entice us to bring into our stores and sell to our customers. We attend this show every winter in effort to keep up with the new design trends for the coming year. We pick up new decorating ideas and tips, display tricks and ideas, marketing concepts and goals. It gives us a renewed sense of enthusiasm for the job. You come back with all these new ideas and it is kind of like Christmas down there with all the new pieces to look at and see.

There are plenty of decisions to be made while we are down that will point us in the direction for the new year to come. We have only so much space to bring in new pieces and to be able to try out certain looks and styles. Certain pieces we really like but will it retail? Is it the quality we are looking for? Can we sell it at that Price? It is a cool piece but will it sell? Are our customers looking for something like this? Can we sell 2 of them or will we sell 20 in the next year? Lots of questions and all we have to go on is our gut and experience. We generally have a pretty good idea what our customers are looking for, but we have brought in some pieces that haven’t done what we thought they would. Staying ahead of the trends and staying fresh is the whole idea of going to the trade shows. Our customers expect to see something new and something different so we have to go!!

It is work after all going to Vegas!

Valley Direct Furniture Provides Furnishings for Love It or List It TV Show

Date Posted: 2015-08-01 | Source: JulianHarris.com | By Julian Harris

Julie and Bernard had such a cute home in such a great neighbourhood … but it was in MAJOR need for improvement. The list they gave me to begin with was huge…it consisted of every main room in the home! I definitely did my best to accomplish all of things that I thought would make them love it again first. Even though I wasn’t able to tick off the rest of their list … I’m so happy that they decided to love it in the end. Their home has great potential and the family will still have room to grow into it!! …Better luck next time Todd!!!

Julie and Bernard had such a cute home in such a great neighbourhood … but it was in MAJOR need for improvement. The list they gave me to begin with was huge…it consisted of every main room in the home! I definitely did my best to accomplish all of things that I thought would make them love it again first. We created an open concept kitchen which gave the illusion of more space, and added storage to save room. We updated the living room and made the bathroom beautiful and functional. They even got a furnace upgrade!!! Not only did all of this add value to their home, it also made the home more functional for their growing family.

We completely renovated the kitchen with all new cabinetry, gave it an open concept and added in more functional storage. I lightened up the colours making the space feel bright, light, fresh and airy. I added in these gorgeous blinds from Wholesale Blind Factory to make everything consistent throughout the room.

I absolutely loved this beautiful table we found at Valley Direct Furniture. We kept all of the furniture consistent throughout this space.

We updated the living room and added in colour and texture. It created a fun space for everyone. To see more of this gorgeous living room transformation and the perfect Valor fireplace that we added in … head to the link at the bottom of the page.

A big thank you as always to Janis Nicolay for the gorgeous photos!!
