I am a creature of habit. I find something that I love, and well, that’s typically what I stick to. There’s a reason why I can watch the same movies over and over and frequent the same travel destinations. But I love new things, too, and last year at JCK Las Vegas, I had the pleasure of discovering just that. I know, I go on and on about how amazing the Design Center is (because it really is!), and I could spend days walking the exquisite aisles of LUXURY, but there are other areas of the show floor at JCK that, had I not wandered from my known and well-loved surroundings, I may not have discovered. I’m hoping that I can do the same for you now.
Love to travel the world? I do, too. That’s why it’s so exciting to discover brands that hail from outside the United States and meet the people behind them, too. You’ll find them scattered everywhere throughout the show, but if you truly want to be immersed, there are special neighborhoods where you can be, from Italy to Hong Kong, Germany to India. There’s also a section called Passport, featuring collections from around the globe. To give you a sneak peek at what you’ll encounter in these sections, here are some standout jewels I’ve recently discovered. I hope you’ll take some time to explore with me!
