Hollander enlivens Court of Versailles line
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, September 13, 2010
The first of four basic bedding collections that Hollander introduces this market is called Arabesque, taken from architectural bronze work at Versailles. This classic scroll design is offered in 300 thread count cotton and offered in all basic bedding product categories with 800 fill power Hungarian goose down for maximum warmth and luxury. There is also a down alternative comforter with blended fibers to offer warmth without weight.
The feature down alternative pillow from the Arabesque collection is filled with Hollander's Clusterpuff down alternative fiber. The supersize gusset to the pillow is engineered so that the majority of the fiber sits in the middle of the pillow for the most support.
A quilted collection named La Plume takes its cue from current fashion trends and a favorite design of Madame de Pompadour. Constructed of a 450-count cotton and silk blend, La Plume features elaborate embroideries and unusual quilting patterns as embellishments. The collection will use 650 fill power down in the down comforter. Some of the pillows feature zippered removable covers. The mattress pad within the collection is a cotton top that uses dual layer technology of gel fiber on top of bonded fiber for both comfort and added support.
Linen Rose, a column jacquard rose floral intertwined with a tailored stripe, was taken from a wallcovering found in a private dressing room at Versailles. It is a 400-count cotton program employing a variety of down types in the natural fill products category. Invista Silky Soft is one of the down alternative fibers used throughout the synthetic pillow and comforter program.
The Diamond Medallion collection is inspired by similar motifs within Versailles. The 400-count cotton fabric uses supersoft yarns to create the base cloth for this collection. The oversized medallion jacquard motifs are contrasted in scale by the diamond embroidery used on the gusset of some of the pillows within the collection.
Hollander uses a new, three-denier down alternative fiber within the synthetic filled product category. A Clusterpuff mattress pad is offered with the Diamond Medallion collection.
