Somers Furniture Rental Staged the Following Home

Sometimes, it takes a house listing with a bullet hole to bring back a little Las Vegas history. Two weeks ago, mob associate Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal’s former home at 972 Vegas Valley Drive was placed on the market. The 3,266-square-foot, three-bedroom historical Las Vegas Country Club residence was built in 1970. It’s priced at Vegasy $777,000. Clark County assessor office’s records show a San Francisco-based company purchased the home for $615,000 in 2011. Brian Burns with Synergy/Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing. The home has a bullet-proof glass wall extending from ceiling to floor behind the staircase. Outside is the 10th tee of the gated community’s golf course where, allegedly, FBI planes landed. The chipped glass, long suspected to be a bullet hole, along with the midcentury modern architecture have been preserved by all the previous owners. In the garage is a small box of modern technology for a smart home next to a clunky system three times its size — the 1970s version of a smart home. Today, the dwelling is outfitted with a Savant smart-home system, which is controlled by the owner’s smartphone. Rosenthal, who illegally and with mob influence operated four Las Vegas casinos — the Stardust, Fremont, Hacienda and Marina — from the home, had the place wired with the best technology of the day. He had the house outfitted with heavy front doors that are bullet-proof, sound-proof rooms (said to keep the FBI from hearing his conversations) and hidden gun compartments. Burns said after the neighbor’s home burned a few years ago, it was discovered the two residents were connected with a secret underground...

Somers Furniture celebrates 25 years as a woman-owned business

Somers Furniture (Somers), manufacturer of custom furniture and furnishing provider for convention rentals and special events, was established in March 1989. The initial focus was to serve the needs of rental furniture for the convention, hotel and casino industries. Owned by CEO Debbi Somers, the WBE Certified furnishing firm has faced many successes as well as challenges over the past 25 years. Having grown from a 10,000 square-foot rented warehouse with one employee, one rented truck and limited inventory, the company now owns a 57,000 square-foot warehouse, a company-owned fleet of trucks and an inventory in excess of $2 million. Employing 20 full and part time employees, each of its three divisions has a female manager in charge. After 9/11 and the most recent economic problems, Somers Furniture, like many exhibition industry firms, faced serious challenges and needed to increase its cash flow to maintain viability. Rather than cut back on operations and personnel, Somers decided to expand business to include custom manufactured furniture for the hospitality industry, special events and an outdoor furniture line sold nationally. Proud of the success the firm has achieved in its Custom Division, Somers shared that her company exclusively uses the talents of in-house personnel. Somers Furniture has assisted in the design, construction and installation of major projects for companies in the Las Vegas area including pool lounges at major casinos such as Bare at Mirage Hostel & Casino, Rehab at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Palms Pool & Spa, Venus at Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino, Daydream at The M Resort, Riviera Pool and DAYLIGHT Beach Club at Mandalay Bay Resort; at...
