C & F plans Atlanta launch party
Gary Evans -- Furniture Today, January 6, 2013
Newport News, Va. - C & F will host a launch party during the Atlanta Market for its new bedding and tabletop collections, "Boxwood Abbey" and "Garden Folly," both of which evoke the monumental age of landscape design in Great Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries.
The "Come Stroll in our Garden" party will take place Jan. 10 at 2:00 pm in the C & F showroom, Building 2, Suite 1435. In addition to the event, there will be a drawing to win a Williamsburg Garden Getaway for two nights.
"Boxwood Abbey" features a bright green geometric interpretation of the elaborately sculpted hedge maze in the gardens of the Governor's Palace in Colonial Williamsburg. The collection also includes 2' x 3' hooked rug, and an 18" x 18" HD pillow, depicting an engraved bird's eye view of a British country estate.
Retail on the queen quilt is $150. Suggested pricing on the hooked rug is $50 and for the HD pillow is $45. Tabletop is also available at retail prices of $6 to $29.
Garden Folly mixes lifelike botanical illustrations with classical and Chinese-influenced summerhouses, called follies. Flame stitched, needlepoint pillows inspired by 18th-century "pocket books," 18" x 18" HD pagoda pillow and 2' x 3' fretwork patterned hooked rug highlight this collection.
Retail prices are $140 for the queen quilt, $160 for the needlepoint pillows, $40 for the HD pillow and $50 for the accent rug. Tabletop retails range from $$6 to $29.
