HD Expo: A First-Timer’s Perspective

Posted by on May 23, 2012 in Uncategorized | 4 comments

Back home safely in New York, a freshly-minted HD Expo expert (self-proclaimed), I'm brimming with inspiration, excitement, and surprisingly enough—after a week of non-stop meetings and events—energy to attack my job as products editor with a more educated and experienced eye.

Last week being my first time ever in Las Vegas (crazy, I know) I was overwhelmed by the sheer size of the spaces, the beauty of my surroundings—especially during our ever-popular Party by the Pool event, held at Caesar's Palace—and the endless list of incredible dining options. I enjoyed delicious fare from La Cave at Wynn (get the s'mores flatbread), Public House in the Venetian, Comme Ca french brasserie at The Cosmpolitan, and a—relatively for Vegas—quiet breakfast at Bouchon in the Venetian, for starters. Whether or not Las Vegas is your bag, there is no excuse to feel bored or out of place; there's something for everyone, whether you're design-obsessed, a lover of all types of entertainment and cuisine, or just a sun-worshipper looking for some beautiful pool-side scenery.

On to the show: The HD magazine booth was a big hit this year, and a success in our efforts to showcase some of our generous vendors and create a space that was welcoming and beautiful to relax in. Countless attendees came by, remarked on the lovely furniture and accessories, and often decided to stay awhile. A few overarching trends I noticed at the show: beautiful furniture designed for both indoor and outdoor use (the line between these two areas, and the furniture created for them, is increasingly blurred, with versatile and interesting results) as well as bold color and patterns. And when I say bold, I mean really bold. From jewel-toned upholstery to rich textiles in primary hues and Moroccan-style patterns on anything and everything, manufacturers and designers are not shying away from eye-catching and unexpected looks. Also, it seemed everywhere I looked I saw variations on the Tangerine Tango/coral color that's so hot this year (including on everyone's fingernails and outfit choices).

Overall, it was a whirlwind of a show, and overwhelmingly a positive one. The upcoming HD Boutique in Miami in September marks my one-year anniversary with the magazine; I'm already looking forward to the new products and people I will encounter along the way.
