Outdoor storage units stand up to summer heat

Outdoor storage units stand up to summer heat

It’s a fact that summertime can be fun and living can be easy, but if you live in places like Las Vegas or other climes that warm up a lot, summertime can also be a challenge. Interestingly it seems that Las Vegans do a switch sometimes when the temperature changes. We tend to be outside more when the weather is what most describe as spring and fall, and some of us are indoors more when others use summer as the time to be outside.

Somers furniture manufactured the benches in the water fall courtyard

Somers furniture manufactured the benches in the water fall courtyard

    For years, Las Vegas has been a place where thoughtful architecture goes to die, with cookie-cutter stucco homes, strip malls and mid-rise office buildings blanketing the valley. The luxury-home market is no different, with supersized Tuscan-style mansions stuffed with the same toys and amenities. Homebuilder Tyler Jones, however, is adding a dash of style to this look-alike landscape. Jones, through his Las Vegas company Blue Heron, is developing three communities of high-end, desert-themed luxury homes in Henderson and has built custom homes around the valley. He founded the company with his father and has been in business for a decade, getting project sites that flopped under previous owners and racking up numerous design and environmental awards from construction-industry groups. The 37-year-old Las Vegas native tries to blend indoor and outdoor space, and subtly packs his cube-shaped homes with electronics. The design, he said, is “Vegas Modern.” At his four-bedroom, 5,800-square-foot model home at Sky Terrace — a development off Sunridge Heights Parkway near Eastern Avenue — most doors are automated, glass pocket-doors that glide completely into the walls. Outside, the courtyard has a water wall, fire pit and flat-screen TV. There are three other fire pits, including on the rooftop “skydeck,” which also boasts a wet bar. There are more than 20 flat-screen TVs scattered around the house, with several hidden behind mirrors, including two alone in the master bathroom. The kitchen bleeds into the living room, and walking around the house, it can take a while to realize that bedrooms and hallways are nowhere in sight. “We want it to feel open,” Jones said.

Somers Furniture Rental Staged the Following Home

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... read more

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... read more

Line fades between indoor, outdoor fabrics

“Knowledge is of two kinds: We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.” Samuel Johnson (1709-1784), English author I have written many times about how lucky we are to live in the Mojave Desert because of the indoor/outdoor lifestyle it affords us. The climate allows us to keep our houses open most of the year, and, if we’re not actually outside, our homes are open. A lot of folks in some parts of the country are saddled with snow, sleet, freezing temperatures and the winter doldrums this time of year. Brrr, it makes me cold to just think about it. Yes, we’re lucky. The indoor/outdoor lifestyle also allows us to make very creative and interesting selections when it comes to our décor and style — inside and out. Southernliving.com says this about the indoor/outdoor trend: “Not long ago, Army green plastic chairs were about all that was available to furnish your patio or screened porch. Luckily, times have changed, and the fabric industry has made remarkable improvements. These days, your outdoor sofa can be covered in a material that’s just as soft and stunning as the fabric on your dining room windows or your living room chairs. The choice of colors, patterns, and textures has never been better.” Yes, in addition to the horrendous green plastic chairs, the old outdoor fabrics were actually a hazard to your well-being. If you accidentally fell asleep with your face on a pillow or cushion, you woke up with track marks on your face or, worse yet, scratches from the rough, uneven weaves. Not so today.... read more
