    Market week faves

    OK, so I didn’t make it out to even one of the “cultural experiences quintessentially New York” that I suggested for after-market hours in my last blog, “Great Escapes for the Market Weary.” Truth is, New York Home Fashions Market week was busy, bustling. The ache on my feet is a lingering reminder. And that is OK, because home textiles suppliers offered an abundance of their own “cultural experiences” in the form of beautiful new designs, innovative products and smart brands. Here are some of the highlights from my point of view: Chris Madden’s new line with Idea ...

For most of the past two or three textiles lifetimes, the business has relied on a handful of increasingly larger retailers selling their wares to a targeted demographic group of Baby Boomers. It was a rather simple formula ...

    Great Escapes for the Market Weary

    Market week can feel like market month for many of us, when you include all the preparations leading up to September 15. And once the week gets rolling, it can be hard to tear yourself away from the textiles. But remember, New York City in the fall is not to be missed, especially after hours. For those of you looking for a break that offers a cultural experience quintessentially New York, here are a few options to consider exploring when the showroom lights go dim. The annual Feast of San Gennaro: This year celebrating its 88th anniversary, the traditional Little ...
