Playthings Staff -- Gifts & Dec, December 17, 2012
Michael Aram, designer of fine handcrafted metalware, will anchor the launch of "c-ONE," a new, cross-category showcase of directional tabletop, gift, and home resources debuting at the Summer 2013 GIFT+HOME at Las Vegas Market, International Market Centers announced.
"Michael Aram is the first of several industry-leading specialty tabletop resources that will comprise the curated tabletop collection on the first floor of the World Market Center's Building C," said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, IMC. "Momentum is building steadily and we expect to announce additional c-ONE participants in the coming weeks."
The 2,380-sq.-ft. permanent showroom will bring Michael Aram's specialty tabletop to the western market and introduce the company's expanded home furnishings line. Established in 1989, the New York-based company is noted for organic and craft-based motifs handcrafted in traditional methods so each piece is one-of-a-kind. The products range from tableware to furniture and are sold to galleries and specialty stores worldwide.
During the winter 2013 Gift+Home Market, Jan. 28 - Feb. 1, 2013, Michael Aram's most popular tabletop designs, as well as select products from the new home furnishings line, will be featured in a special c-ONE preview display in the lobby of Building C. The curated display, which will showcase select product from the confirmed c-ONE participants, will set the tone for the full-scale launch in summer 2013.
According to Sebastian Herald, CEO of Michael Aram, Inc., "We're excited about the opportunities that the Las Vegas Market affords, including access to an established and growing western U.S. and international buyer base, cross-category opportunities within the home furnishings and furniture markets, and exposure to hospitality design distribution channels."
