ABSTRACT
The article reports that occasional furniture vendors exhibiting in Las Vegas, Nevada, showcased rustic styles featuring heavy grain patterns and distressed finishes, aiming to lure orders particularly from Western buyers. Kathy Ireland Home by Standard Furniture had ten rustic groups in the market. Dealer interest and order-writing was particularly strong on a rustic group called Breckenridge. Another popular group was the more contemporary styled La Paz.
