Affordable Seating Helps Backwoods Bistro Update Their Seating

Retailers and interior designers looking to get “Ahead of the Curve” will once again see an exclusive preview of the hottest new trends and designs in home furnishings and décor through the lens of today’s top tastemakers at the Summer 2014 Las Vegas Market. In an intimate and inspired panel discussion, sponsored by IMC, Las Vegas Market’s signature Ahead of the Curve live show will boast another extraordinary line-up of some of the most celebrated U.S. designers, including Thom Filicia, Michelle Nussbaumer, and Timothy Corrigan.

Moderated by TODAY Show contributor, design author and tastemaker Susanna Salk, the presentation will take place on Tuesday, July 29 at 10:00 a.m. in Building B’s WorldView Ballroom, and offers CEU-accreditation to interior designers. Immediately following this panel discussion, a meet-and-greet and book signing with the panelists, along with lunch, will be held in the Safavieh showroom (A-101) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

These top design authorities will scour the five million square-feet of showrooms at Las Vegas Market, and share their top picks during a live panel discussion and via social media channels, which will include a question and answer segment. The best-of-the-best product will be “on set” during the live panel discussion allowing these tastemakers to share more intimately with the audience what’s hot from market, plus their insights on incorporating these fashion-forward styles into current design projects.

The star-studded design cast features celebrated interior designer Thom Filicia, founder and chief creative officer of New York City-based design firm, Thom Filicia, Inc. Filicia's New-American Style has earned him widespread acclaim and notable clients, including Tina Fey, Delta Air Lines, Jennifer Lopez, Peter Jennings, and others in the worlds of finance, sports, media, fashion and hospitality. Filicia is universally known for his ability to create stunning modern, yet classic interiors that retain an inviting aesthetic, which reflects the individuality of his clients.

Filicia’s unmistakable design sensibility has earned him countless accolades from the design world, including being named by House Beautiful as one of their “Top 100 Designers,” House & Garden dubbed him an “International Taste Maker” and Elle Décor regaled him as an “A-List Designer.” Filicia's recognition expanded beyond the design world when he was cast as the interior design expert in the ratings juggernaut and Emmy-Award winning hit show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, not to mention, featured in numerous magazine and TV shows. He is an author of three stunning design books including his most recent title, “American Beauty: Renovating & Decorating a Beloved Retreat.”

Also the driving force behind the Thom Filicia Home Collection—which includes furniture, rugs, textiles, artwork, curtain hardware, lighting, wallcovering, bedding, pillows and broadloom for the retail and trade markets—Felicia enjoys partnerships with some of the world's leading home brands. Filicia’s latest project has been the opening of his first to-the-trade showroom at the New York Design Center.

Now in its seventh year, past designer participants in Ahead of the Curve have included design luminaries year after year including Anthony Baratta, Betsy Burnham, Barclay Butera, Darryl Carter, Philip Gorrivan, Alexa Hampton, Darren Henault, Laura Kirar, Amy Lau, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Mary McDonald, Joe Nye, Kishani Perera, Windsor Smith, Nathan Turner, Ron Woodson, and Vicente Wolf.
