The Las Vegas Design Center announced that Palecek has opened a new 2,500 square-foot showroom, featuring its wide array of natural, handcrafted home furnishings. The national and international wholesaler’s location will adjoin the new, multi-line LMS Design Group showroom, offering designer furnishings and inspiration to designers and consumers alike. LMS Design Group staff will operate Palecek between the biannual Las Vegas Market.
David Beld, vice president, sales and marketing with Palecek, said that the new World Market Center Las Vegas showroom brings a wonderful opportunity to expand and service the Palecek clientele. “Palecek is excited to unveil our new, permanent showroom in Las Vegas Design Center (A-132) in time for the January 2011 Market,” said Beld. “As we break ground in our new space, we at Palecek are eager to develop with Las Vegas Design Center and take advantage of the growing West Coast market. The opportunity to showcase our products at World Market Center will allow Palecek to expand its West Coast presence. Palecek is thrilled to be part of the growth of World Market Center Las Vegas.”
Palecek got its start 35 years ago in the San Francisco Bay Area. Thanks to a loyal customer base and innovative designs, Palecek has expanded to include wood, wicker, rattan and metal furniture, domestic upholstery and finishing, lighting, wall décor, textiles, accessories and gifts. Palecek’s domestic manufacturing headquarters is one of the largest employers in Richmond, California. With seven national showrooms, Palecek has become the premier company within its niche.
“While Palecek has grown, it has maintained a steady, tangible connection to its roots in woven basketry,” said Randy Wells, vice president, Las Vegas Design Center. “There is a link to that core competency of woven natural materials that is visible in everything Palecek creates. The result is a beautiful product line and a terrific, unique brand. Over the years, Palecek has flourished as a full-line furniture, lighting and accessories company that is a staple for many designers, and we are very excited to have them as a part of Las Vegas Design Center.”
