NYIGF @ Home to refine better home textiles resources at Javits

Expanded resources, extended lines, and a myriad of new products await buyers attending Home Textiles Market Week, Friday, January 23, through Thursday, January 29, 2009, in New York City.

The semi-annual market for mid-to-high-end home textiles includes locations at the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF) at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Passenger Ship Terminal Piers 90, 92 and 94, 230 Fifth Avenue and 7 W New York. Industry-specific events, including dynamic seminars and special events, have been included in the schedule as added value for winter market participants.

In total, the market features over 500 better home textiles suppliers, featuring the newest bed and bath fashions, table linens, kitchen textiles, towels, decorative accessories, area rugs, window treatments and decorative fabrics.

Some 200 mid-to-high-end home fashion resources will be positioned in NYIGF's At Home featuring Home Textiles division at the Javits Center. Another 300 companies will be located throughout the showrooms at 230 Fifth Avenue and 7 West, as well as at other NYIGF divisions.

“This market offers an unparalleled breadth and depth of bed, bath, and home linens and accessories, unlike any other U.S. market,” said Penny Sikalis, GLM vice president and home textiles industry veteran. “We make concerted efforts to incorporate the right mix of companies and product lines in response to buyer demand.”

In line with this strategy, NYIGF's At Home featuring Home Textiles division has continued to refine, coalesce and expand better home textiles resources at Javits. Several established brands will increase exhibit space at Javits for the winter market, with Sferra expanding its booth space by nearly 75% to accommodate an exciting launch of a new licensed designer. Other companies, such as leading bed linen manufacturers SDH and Zoeppritz, will move into At Home featuring Home Textiles at Javits from Pier 94, as will Patricia Spratt (table linens), Tabula Tua (floor coverings) and Entablature by Dransfield & Ross (table linens).

At 7 W New York, a number of new showrooms and lines have been introduced since the summer 2008 market, including: Carol Nevin & Design South Africa; Cote Bastide; Douleur Nature; Grace Home Fashions; Harman; Home Treasures; Kevin O'Brien Studio; KKP Fine Linens; Light of Mine Designs; Mahogany by Ra Home; Malaika; Orian Rugs; and Serena & Lily;. Several new textile tenants also have recently joined 230 Fifth Avenue. These include AG Casa, Inc.; Carnation Home Fashions, Inc.; Golden Sheets Factory Inc.; and Microtex.

Educational Seminars
Several educational sessions will be presented during market week, including two offering trend and forecast intelligence in color and home product design. The seminars will cover a wide range of topics pertinent to today's retailer, such as how to source and verify “green” products; and how to thrive as a retailer during challenging economic times.
