Las Vegas 2011 Winter Market - Part 1

I attended the Las Vegas Market show a couple of weeks ago and have been looking forward to showing you all of the photos I took of new product for 2011. This post covers the first half of my time at the show, which highlights the vintage / rustic / cottage-chic trends that are here to stay. Crowns, birds, horses, angel wings and butterflies/insects were everywhere in accessories, artwork and pillows. The whole bird trend is still going strong, which kind of surprises me.Textured fabrics like burlap, linen and jute remain popular, as do distressed painted finishes and natural raw woods used for furniture, lamps, and accessories.  Enjoy browsing through the photos and please share your thoughts on things you love, hate, want to see more of, etc...you know I always love reading your comments! (I'll be posting the other half of the show tomorrow).

Chunky wooden candle sticks, an ornate mirror and an over-sized lamp..all in fresh shades of turquoise. 

Painted wooden lamp base with the coolest raffia drum shade - gorgeous!

Ever since I blogged about accessorizing with busts, I've been noticing them everywhere!

I'm not a huge fan of "blingy" accessories, but I really liked the contrast of these crystal tealights mounted on rustic iron bases.

Horses were everywhere - mainly in artwork and accessories. I fell in love with this piece of art.

Vintage subway signs (left) and a beautiful art print of a woman.

Angel wings were another strong trend in accessories and wall decor. 

These were some of the most unique decorative vintage glass bottles I've seen. They were absolutely gorgeous...definitely on the pricey side, but true works of art!

Beautiful sand-painted glass jars with a crystal base and top. These were stunning!

SugarBoo Designs (images above and below) - one of my favorite art lines, owned and operated by a husband and wife team right here in the USA (you can purchase several of the pieces shown here through my online shop :).
