Michael J. Knell -- Furniture Today, May 16, 2005
Katha Diddel Home Collection has licensed with The Royal Oak Foundation to produce an exclusive line of needlepoint pillows, rugs and accessories as well as hooked rugs featuring historic British decorative motifs.
The Royal Oak Foundation is an American charitable organization dedicated to historic preservation as well as cultural exchange between the United States and Great Britain.
The first two Katha Diddel Royal Oak collections will launch with a range of decorative pillows available for September shipment. Rug collections will launch in 2006.
The Kirby line, based on a 1920s handblock, features a floral bouquet framed with acanthus leaves. The Kipling line, inspired by an 18th century SoHo tapestry, portrays a garden scene from palatial Indian life.
