Prestigious global brands. High-end design services. One-of-a-kind pieces. These intersections of elegance and design are Las Vegas Valley's exclusive Furniture Market. Owned by native Las Vegans Robert and Liz Werner, Furniture Market is an industry leader in fine home furnishings with a bespoke customer experience. The showroom boasts more than 43,000 square feet of luxe global brands and Las Vegas's highest end imported furniture.
Red Rock Lifestyle met with marketing director Bob Lomassaro to better understand the caliber and exclusivity of the pieces that Furniture Market provides to discerning homeowners.
"We offer more than 200 of the world's most prestigious brands of fine luxury furniture."
This includes recognizable artisans, such as Gamma Arredamenti, Lazar, Catalan, and Natuzzi Italia. "We have the only Natuzzi showroom in Las Vegas; 85 percent of our furniture is built by Italian, German, and Norwegian craftsman artisans."
Furniture Market is also the sole importer of many brands on the West Coast, including the new, buzzed-about brand Reflex Angelo.
One of the few design destinations in town specializing in contemporary and transitional furniture, Furniture Market is an interior design studio with immediate access to luxury furnishings. Under the showroom's spotlights, customers can experience carefully curated design vignettes to understand the aesthetic of the high-quality craftsmanship. Having started the company more than a decade ago, the Werners have always maintained the principle of elegant homes centered on the perfect piece for the environment. "Furniture fills the room," they have often been quoted as saying. "The right furniture completes the room."
And there is something to see from each of the brands that Furniture Market takes pride in importing. Other high-end stores in town might pull out an elegant brochure to showcase pieces. Here, a team of talented, highly qualified design consultants, is tasked with finding the right furniture to fit any home and budget. A buyer can experience a 4 to 5-piece luxury brand setting and partner with the design consultants to determine the best option.
"These pieces are tailored to our clients' colors, fabrics, style, and budget to fit their home."
Additionally, Furniture Market features a full sample room where clients can select from a large array of fabrics and leathers in a nearly endless selection of colors, textures, or grades of materials desired.
The company also offers qualified purchasers no-obligation in-home design visits. Design consultants visit the home, gain an understanding of what the owner is trying to achieve in the space, and design a custom portfolio for the room.
"Our team will configure the furniture, so it fits perfectly in the room," declares Lomassaro. "It will look as if it were meant to be there." Furniture Market also offers white glove in-home delivery and set-up of all pieces.
Longtime Las Vegans might recognize Furniture Market's location as the former Flower Market and Antiques Gallery. Robert and Liz Werner's husband and wife team evolved the business from an antique store to the prestigious luxury showcase it is today. Both are committed community members, including the support of Toys for Tots, Susan G. Komen, and Three Square. The Werner's local roots—combined with their customer-centric business model and a passion for beautiful, imported furniture—make Furniture Market Vegas' design destination.
