Newport/Layton taps Tamblyn to grow businesses
Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, September 23, 2004
PORTLAND, Ore. — As decorative pillow and bedding supplier Newport/Layton Home Fashions grows its window treatment, shower curtain and table linen businesses in an effort to expand its category offerings, the company recently hired Richard Tamblyn to the newly created post of design and marketing director.
He will be in charge of overseeing all design and marketing initiatives for these three product categories.
Tamblyn will be based out of the company's New York showroom at 295 Fifth Ave., and will report to Corey Faul, president.
Prior to joining Newport/Layton, Tamblyn worked at Dan River.
"Our whole motivation here is that these categories represent for us a very small percentage of our total business," Faul said. "If we really want to develop them, we needed someone like (Tamblyn) to devote 100 percent of their time developing them."
