Showroom News

I just wanted to share some fun news and updates from our showrooms and market centers.
And from the press release regarding our new showroom in Vegas:

Accent Décor Expands, Relocates Showroom at Winter 2012 Gift+Home at Las Vegas Market
LAS VEGAS – (Nov. 21, 2011) – World Market Center Las Vegas today announced Accent Décor, Inc., one of the leading gift and home décor distributors and importers, will relocate and expand their showroom for Las Vegas Market, Jan. 30 – Feb. 3, 2012.

The Georgia-based company will more than double their sole west coast showroom space to nearly 7,500 square feet and relocate to Building C, Suite C-896.

“We are extremely excited about our great move because it represents an exciting time for the Accent Décor family,” said Frank Hofland, owner of Accent Décor. “We take pride in our company and value the continued support from our loyal customer base, and this expansion gives us the opportunity to generate renewed and new interest from our current west coast companies as well as those we hope to work with in the future.”

With a chill in the air, I can't help but be excited that the holidays are just around the corner. And what better way to get in the holiday spirit than with a little snow? This week, we're excited to unveil a brand new Tips and Tricks video from Kevin Ylvisaker using our fabulous Snow product.

With snow, in a matter of minutes you can transform your creation into a wintery wonderland! Naturally safe and easy to use.
What can I snow? Flowers, ornaments, trees, glass, anything!

How do I snow? Moisten the surface area you want to cover by misting with water Sprinkle the desired area with snow. Let dry for approximately 2 minutes - Enjoy!
To clean just use soap and water.
