Michael J. Knell -- Furniture Today, November 14, 2005
NEW YORK -- HomeSource International is making a statement in blankets these days with a new collection of 36-by-44-inch MicroCotton baby blankets in four pastel hues to retail for $60.
Also new is a series of adult-size blankets in six different constructions: Lyocell cotton; mercerized summer-weight cotton; combed cotton with a chenille look; enzyme-washed low-twist cotton; bamboo and cotton in a 50/50 mix offered in a cable knit style or large block weave; and a low-twist heavier-weight cotton. Blankets will retail for $150 queen.
In bedding, HomeSource expanded its Solutions sheet program into fashion bedding with its Nano-Tex duvet and shams in 300-count cotton that is water and stain repellent as well as naturally wrinkle resistant. Nano-Tex top-of-bed features fabric covered banded button details and is offered in atomic white, neutron green and molecular blue. Coordinated sheeting has six rows of stitching on the hem for a quilted effect.
The other expansion was a 100 percent bamboo quilted coverlet and shams in a brick design and reversible bamboo duvet and shams in five color combos. The program has a palette of seven colors: petal, blossom, buttercup, grass green, hemp, sky blue and white.
