Textiles Showroom Market Opens Today

       

       

NEW YORK–The first of this year’s two New York Home Fashions Markets formally opens today, with a whole spate of brand launches from some of the industry’s major players.

In decorative bedding, among the highlights this week are the launch of Revman’s most recent licensed bedding program, this one with designer Kevin O’Brien. Branded as The Tallulah Collection by Kevin O’Brien, this week’s debut consists of four duvet ensembles, each with coordinating decorative pillows and a signature burn-out velvet coverlet, along with shams in different colorways. Also in decorative bedding, CHF Industries will be expanding its licensed bedding collections with kate spade new york and Donna Karan Home.

Beach towels will be a major focus this week. On tap from Home Source International will be its newest licensed towel collection with Coca-Cola. In addition, Loftex will unveil two vividly colored, whimsically designed collections of beach towels, Monster Mash and Elefriends.

In basic bedding, along with new product introductions, Hollander is theming its showroom around American Renewal. The showroom will focus on the importance of local communities, support for local businesses and how consumers feel about community—and the role Hollander is playing in fostering the sense of community.

The focus at the Pacific Coast Feather showroom this week will be on innovation. The company is expanding its bed-pillow and mattress-pad lineup with products filled with Micro Gel patented fiberfill in its Excell and PureForm collections. The Sheex utility-bedding line is also being expanded with the Air Performance mattress pad and comforter.

NEW YORK–The first of this year’s two New York Home Fashions Markets formally opens today, with a whole spate of brand launches from some of the industry’s major players.

In decorative bedding, among the highlights this week is the launch of the Nautica line with Revman. Formerly with Welspun, the apparel brand moved its license to Revman, joining that company’s ever-growing stable of brands, and will be featured in bed ensembles and bath coordinates.

Also increasing its license portfolio is Springs Global, which this week debuts its licensed collection with Pantone, also available in bedding and bath. The collection is being branded under the name Pantone Universe.

WestPoint Home is ready to unveil its Portico Home licensed line this week. Made with sustainable materials, this line will appear on bedding, bath, robes and rugs.

In basic bedding, Hollander is bolstering its Memorelle collection, first brought to the trade at last September’s market, with a grouping of bed pillows and mattress pads. The line is made with Dacron Memorelle, a fiberfill from Invista that conforms to the body’s shape much like memory foam.

Pacific Coast Feather has two new branded introductions this week. MaxiForm is a memory-fiber collection of pillows and pads. LuxForm is a mattress pad that follows up on the company’s launch, at last September’s market, of LunaLuxe fiber-filled pads.

NEW YORK–The New York Home Fashions Market opens today.

New licenses will take center stage at some of the showrooms here this week.

The Sharper Image line with Sinomax, part of a recently formed license, will also make its bow this week.

Brands are also in the spotlight this week. Hollander will showcase its newest brand, Live Comfortably, which the company described as “the ultimate luxury brand in basic bedding.”

Also this week, companies which have formed alliances will present themselves. Pacific Coast Feather and United Feather & Down, which merged earlier this year, will be welcoming buyers and merchandisers at their newly combined showroom, on the third floor of 1071 Sixth Ave. Natco, whose partnership with Pakistan-based Amtex is expected to be finalized soon, will be showing at 295 Fifth Ave.

NEW YORK–While some vendors had appointments with customers during the weekend, the showrooms formally open today for this week’s New York Home Fashions Market.

On the decorative-bedding side, WestPoint Home will debut the latest in a series of new brands, the Hanes licensed collection of both decorative and basic bedding. Springs Global is concentrating on its Court of Versailles brand this week, with several new ensembles geared toward the upper end. Other new programs in decorative bedding include Welspun’s licensed collection with designer Thom Filicia, encompassing bed ensembles and bath coordinates.
