Crestline Home Fashions formed
Larry Thomas -- Furniture Today, July 6, 2007
New York – Two home textiles industry veterans with 20 years of experience in sourcing product in China and distribution in the U.S., Denise Matlack and Danny Liu, have teamed up to form a new venture: Crestline Home Fashions.
Crestline will be showing at 230 Fifth Avenue, with products on display from Sunday, Aug. 5 through Thursday, Aug. 9. Those planning to attend the market are encouraged to make an appointment by contacting Matlack at (310) 503-9805 or Liu at (646) 301-3680.
Crestline’s initial product offering for the August market will center on eco-friendly collections as well as traditional and transitional bedding sets. The new company has a partnership with New Century, a mill in HangZhou, China.
Crestline has recruited Cindi Milrad for design direction and product development. Milrad is a former associate of Matlack’s from their days at the now-defunct Barth & Dreyfuss.
“Cindi brings a fresh approach to the fashion bedding market,” Matlack enthused. “Her experience in textiles ranges from tabletop and kitchen textiles, to pet beds and pillows. Recently she has even worked on a ready-to-wear collection. Her ability to work fashion colors and trends into our product has proven to give us a keen edge.”
