Eager to expand its tabletop category, Las Vegas Market strikes gold with the opening of the Tamara Childs Showroom of hand-gilded tabletop, giftware, home décor and accessories.
Seattle, Washington (January, 2014) —Internationally-renowned artisan of hand-gilded glassware, Tamara Childs of Childs Studio, opens her first showroom in the western United States at the popular Las Vegas Market this month. Childs Studio showcases its extensive array of hand-gilded glassware, giftware, tabletop and home décor and accessories at the new permanent venue. The showroom will be open to buyers and customers year-round.
Even as an ancient art, gilding thin metal leaf on surfaces as a means of adornment delighted its recipients—as gifts, showpieces or as everyday tableware. In her unique style, Tamara Childs continues this timeless tradition of creating hand-gilded pieces of table art made for a lifetime of enjoyment and use.
According to many interior designers, the trending word in tableware and home décor this year is ‘metallics’: gold, silver, copper and a composite of all create a new elegance for the well-styled home. Topping the list of must-have metallic decor are hand-gilded dining accessories and giftware from the Tamara Childs Collection.
Childs is introducing a new line of metallic gilded designs especially for the Las Vegas showroom. Stunning red variegated metal leaf glows on Childs’ hand-gilded works of functional art for the table. Photos are available here.
“The Tamara Childs brand literally sells itself. Showing and selling the Tamara Childs Collection is fantastic for us because she not only creates 100 different hand-gilded pieces but in eight different colors from silver, gold, copper, northern lights, red variegated and so many more,” says Jim Burnett, retail manager and buyer for LCR Collection in Connecticut, a full service design and decoration firm with a retail shop selling specialty home furnishings. “Her work pleases just about every customer we have. She’s definitely a brand leader in our showroom. We’ve consistently sold out of her ever-popular gilded tabletop ware and accessories”
