LAS VEGAS–Three gift and home decor exhibitors were recognized this week for Outstanding Achievement in Visual Merchandising at Gift+Home at the summer Las Vegas Market.
Primitives by Kathy, eyebobs eyewear and The Naked Bee all took home awards commending their aesthetic sensibility. Each winner received credit toward space at the next market, along with celebratory flowers and champagne.
Celebrity designer Monica Pedersen of HGTV and home products and trends editor Julie Smith Vincenti evaluated spaces on innovation, creativity, technique and aesthetic. Because space was limited by booth size, each exhibitor was challenged to craft an inviting display using limited resources and space.
“We were thrilled to have received this merchandising award and appreciate everyone in Las Vegas for recognizing us,” said Annie Schickel, designer for Primitives by Kathy. “Sometimes it’s about building an awesome display with what you have available, so to be recognized for what we do is amazing. We work hard to make our space inviting so that customers connect with it and want to come in. We have had a great show and have seen so many new customers.”
