First of all, I would like to personally congratulate the winner of our drawing for the mermaid, “Siréne”, held in Atlanta on the 15th. Tami Durkee of The Pear Tree in Cocoa Village, Florida made a generous donation and was rewarded by getting to take the mermaid home this spring! Thank you to all of our customers and friends who contributed to help the American Red Cross raise funds for the ongoing Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
You Can Still Help:
If you did not win the first drawing, don’t worry – you can still help! We will be collecting donations through the end of the Las Vegas market (February 1st) for a chance to win the second original mermaid sculpture, “Korrigan”, by yours truly. I have been working at record pace to complete a second sculpture in time for market, and guess what? She’s finished. This piece is very different from the first, and I must say that I think you will love her. She is seated on a table, but can be removed to sit on a countertop or other surface, so she is more versatile to display. Her shimmery painted scales are decorated with intricate drawings remeniscent of henna tattoos, and she leans back, holding a glass orb in her outstretched hand. Very ethereal, in a watery kind of way!
We are continuing to partner with the Red Cross in their Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. For every $20 donated, you will receive a chance to win this beautiful original life-sized mermaid sculpture, and IMAX will contribute matching donations. Join us in continuing the support needed by our friends and neighbors affected by the storm.
I hope that if you make it to Las Vegas you will come and see the mermaid. You will find “Korrigan” in our showroom window display, World Market Center A429.

We are updating our popular ColorPOST with Connie™ concept at the October High Point market. This successful program now merges two trend-forward colors into one dynamic presentation for each collection, and the collections have been streamlined into a smaller commitment for the retailer.
The updated program is price sensitive on individual components and all elements of a collection work together to decorate a room perfectly. Essentially, “what you see is what you get” – all minimum quantities are shown on the individual pods. Each pod has been merchandised to hit a strategic price point of around $1000.

If you love Carolyn Kinder accessories (and really, how could you not?) then you should be very excited about our newest introduction! Our new CK intros are simply amazing!

We’re debuting our largest product introduction in our twenty-eight year history at Winter 2012 market. Over 800 new introductions span every product category in the IMAX line, including an enthusiastic revitalization of their seasonal category. This, in addition to great new trends, the ever-popular ColorPOST by Connie program, designer exclusives and more make the IMAX showroom a must-see destination.
Don’t miss the new IMAX trends – Magnolia, Glory Days and Serenity. Magnolia brings Southern hospitality to mind with its fresh twist on this traditional American theme. With the sweet accent of its namesake, magnolia blossoms, this trend combines preppy textures and patterns with accessories of warm, iconic shapes and functions – from tiered cake stands to elegant glass vases, decorative storage, wall décor and much more. Glory Days finds mid-century inspired nostalgic style in vintage, masculine accessories for home or office. With muted color and aged-finish sports memorabilia accents, this trend is sure to hit a home run. Serenity holds true to its name with a tranquil, zen-inspired style. Natural elements, water features, soft colors and textures bring a peaceful touch to any setting.
