Home Source & Karsten launch Solutions bedding line
Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, September 27, 2004
ATLANTA — Home Source International and Karsten America have launched a sheeting collection of six sheeting constructions intended to provide solutions to the sleeping experience.
"We are trying to give consumers another reason to buy solid-color sheets other than thread count," said Phyllis Moore, vice president of bed sourcing at Home Source. "We wanted to come out with sheets that solve some of the problems consumers face with their sheets to make life a little easier for them."
"Karsten America working together with Home Source International enables both of us to bring innovative product to the market that separates us from the usual offerings, but we were able to do it faster and more efficiently by leveraging each other's assets," said John Cafaro, chief marketing officer for Karsten America.
The six new constructions include: Simplicity, a 310-count, blend of cotton and micro denier polyester; Ultra Fresh, a 300-count sateen; a 250-count pure Bamboo sheet; a 300-count stain-repellant/resistant sateen with Advanced Teflon finishing; a 300-count wrinkle-resistant sheet; and a 350-count sueded oxford weave.
The new Solutions collection will be shown at Karsten's showroom at 254 Fifth Ave. as well as the Home Source showroom at 230 Fifth Ave., during the New York Home Textiles Market.
