>Dressers, chairs and night stands once destined for the Las Vegas Strip have been moved to a casino near the California-Nevada border after its owners bought the furnishings from billionaire Carl Icahn.
Furnishings sold from the shuttered Fontainebleau Las Vegas project are now in Buffalo Bill’s, a casino-hotel along Interstate 15 in Primm. Even some of the carpeting intended for the Fontainebleau has been installed in the corridors of the 1,242-room hotel at Buffalo Bill’s.
The furniture cost about $1.5 million, part of a nearly $3 million remodeling of Buffalo Bill’s, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The casino about 40 miles southwest of Las Vegas shut down last month to remodel guest rooms, add a Denny’s Restaurant and introduce an energy efficiency program. It reopened Dec. 23.
