Life as a Furniture Buyer by Daphne Oliveros
This Sunday, I’ll be attending the semi-annual Las Vegas Furniture Market and I want to take you along with me. We’ll join 50,000 buyers and industry professionals from around the world. You’ll get a sneak peak from manufacturers as they test new designs and unveil upcoming trends. Hopefully, we’ll learn a lot together.
So please join me for the next 3 days starting Sunday. I’m so excited to share my short trip to the world market of furniture with you.
I am the Division Manager at HomeWorld Furniture and have spent more than 27 years in the furniture business. My work has given me the opportunity to travel exotic places such as Thailand, Vietnam, and Coppenhagen. Visiting factories, attending furniture shows, and being exposed to different cultures has been a wonderful learning experience for me. One of the toughest challenges about my job is leaving my family behind in Hawaii. Being a sports enthusiast, I especially miss my son’s baseball games. But it’s important to always stay abreast of what’s happening in the industry so that we can be the first to bring the best furniture choices and values to Hawaii.
