Buyers of home accessories seem to have hit the jackpot in Las Vegas this week. Floors and showrooms are running over with new and returning exhibitors of accents, lighting, rugs, wall décor, mirrors, soft goods, tabletop, accent furniture and other jewelry for the home.

California-based modern lighting and decor shopping site EuroStyleLighting.com announces Euro Edge, a new online resource designed to help consumers find modern style inspiration with the aid of style picks from seven of the nation’s leading modern design influencers: Kelly Beall, Justina Blakeney, Caitlin Flemming, Kirsten Grove, Victoria McGinley, Trina McNeilly, and Liz Stanley.
For this project, each influencer was invited to specify ten must-have products available on EuroStyleLighting.com. Appended with quotes about their choices, these carefully curated selections afford readers an intimate view into each influencer’s taste, personality and approach to design. Consumers can freely treat these top-ten lists as cohesive style guides, or cherry-pick items as inspiration for their own home design projects. The landing page for Euro Edge can be found at EuroStyleLighting.com/EuroEdge/.
