Deliveries of furniture will begin Dec. 18.
Eco-friendly flooring focus of center event
The latest information on eco-friendly flooring coverings and designs will be the focus of Sustainable Footprints, a special event for trade professionals and connoisseurs of design Wednesday at the Las Vegas Design Center.
Scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the event will take place at the center, located on the campus of World Market Center Las Vegas, 495 S. Grand Central Parkway.
“More and more, the environment is becoming an integral component of the design process, and both designers and their customers want to learn more about how they can incorporate sustainable flooring into their projects and homes,” said Randy Wells, vice president of Las Vegas Design Center.
Featured guest speakers include award-winning designer Clodagh, an innovator and leader in environmental design. Additionally, there will be rug-specific special events in several showrooms.
At 10:30 a.m., Clodagh will present “Your Home, Your Sanctuary and Design Sustainability,” highlighting commercial design trends and sustainability. During her 25-year career in New York, she has become a known leader for using sustainable materials and practices.
After her seminar, she will sign copies of her new book in the Tufenkian Artisan showroom, C-176.
The afternoon will include a dessert reception in the M Luxury Living/Masterlooms showroom, C-125, during which Patrick Sims, director of West Coast operations for M Luxury Living, will share his expertise and William Pinckard, a certified rug specialist and rug appraiser, will be available to answer questions about how to care for fine rugs as well as eco-friendly dyes.
