Anthony Baratta's Picks out of Las Vegas Market 2012

While perusing the 5 million square feet of showrooms in Las Vegas Market this week I discovered some great pieces that I would love to use in some of my upcoming projects. Below is a sampling of the diversity of the most interesting new house furnishings.

Las Vegas Market: Jan. 30-Feb. 3, 2012, 495 S. Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas, NV

I loved this bed is indeed over-scaled. You actually need an extremely large space to use a piece of furniture this size, but if you’ve got the space, then why not? And I loved the way that it was displayed on the wall that was all-black. It was a terrific way to highlight the classic gold finish. It is not for everybody but it is certainly fit for a princess.

Baroque Fantasy Bed, Christopher Guy

This is kind of an interesting design. I found a lot of mirrors in this series and thought this one was exceptional. It can be used in several distinct applications. And I love the white lacquer.

Circular Mirror Frame, Robert Allen

I saw this piece and had a beach-house fantasy. I have not seen the material employed in this manner, and find it quite inspiring. The mirror will look great in a relaxed, casual interior.

I was quite impressed in the quality of the upholstery with this 50-year-old American producer. Clean lines and luscious fabrics create a high-quality product at a reasonable price.

Seat, G. Romano

Sleek and retro-inspired, I like this desk delicacy and feel of fine craftsmanship. It is a really great scale and has the ability to bring an element of chic to a lot of projects.

Glass-topped Table, Palacek

Tailored and timeless, this reproduction of a classic French trunk functions too in a modern interior (such as a high-ceilinged loft) as it does in a beachfront cottage.

French White Trunk, Authentic Models

I love this piece captures the old-time essence of an antique surfboard. I am considering using it at a hotel in Santa Monica since it actually reflects the California surf culture.

For the hippy-dippy in all of us: a patch-pocket blue jean rug. It has an interesting artisanal quality, and I love the sustainability of this piece thanks to the use of recycled material.

Contemporary Runway Rug, Loloi Rugs

Love this mirror link screening. It reminds me of a ’60s Courrèges sequin dress. Lot of style, with several distinct uses.

Mirror Screen, Uttermost

The ultimate motorized recliner for your man-cave media space. High quality, reddish leather is reminiscent of a classic Corvette. The only thing it won’t do is brush your teeth for you.

Autobahn, Palliser

This very smart widescreen part system from Bassett has a very simple design and can function in a multitude of situations. It works equally too in a conventional interior as in a contemporary interior.

Media Cabinet, Bassett

A beautiful medium scale sputnik fixture composed of Murano glass disks gives this style fixture an updated feel with a feeling of allure.

Outdoor stackable chair enlivened with tangerine, Pantone’s shade of this year. I like it used in both indoor and outdoor applications.

Orange Chairs, Veneman

Sleek, stylish, and complex. These trunks are excellent as night tables or side tables. I love all three colors used collectively, but they also stand out quite well on their own.

Lacquer Chests, Four Hands

Fabulous new design with a’40s French-bistro feel. I am excited about using it in both residential and commercial projects. It has great lines and displays a milder side of modern.

Leather Chair, Palacek
