Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, March 27, 2002
Los Angeles — Luxury home furnishings designer Raymond Waites has again paired up with a home textiles supplier, American Down Inc., this time to produce an upscale line of decorative pillows.
American Down Inc. will produce three collections of luxury decorative pillows that either coordinate with existing bedding lines by Waites or stand alone, Michael Greenberg, marketing manager for imports, American Down, told HTT.
For the initial launch of the line, scheduled during the upcoming New York Home Textiles market this month, American Down will produce three collections within Waites' design styles:
— The Print Collection, which coordinates directly with the Waites bedding collection by importer Next Creations Inc., New York, will comprise about seven pieced-pillow offerings made of 100 percent cotton and feature heavy embellishments such as animal prints, velvets, fringes and cords;
— The Dupioni Silk Collection, made of 100 percent dupioni silk and beaded trims;
— The Animal Collection, panel pillows made of 100 percent poly-cotton mixed with rayon and embellished with cords and tassels.
While America Down's typical price point averages $14.95 to $29.95, the company's Raymond Waites offerings will retail for $35 for a small 10" x 10" to $100 for a large 27-inch square pillow.
