Traditions to Debut Charlotte Moss Collection
January 8, 2007,
Charlotte Moss, interior designer and author of design and decorating books, has signed a licensing agreement for a decorative bedding collection with Traditions by Pamela Kline here.
"We both love antique textiles," explained Pamela Kline, ceo. "Charlotte decided to do a bedding line, and it's a good fit. Charlotte is a little more formal than I am; her point of view will bring more of a luxe look, trims, and be a bit cleaner. It will offer us a new dimension but with the same sensibility."
The first collection will have two beds. William, an oversized damask printed on linen, is mated to a stonewashed basketweave matelasse in blue. Two styles of sheets are part of the William bed, a rich blue, that Kline refers to as "the city bed." The queen linen duvet is $362 cost and is offered as special orders.
Carnations, "the country bed," uses two blues, a French and a royal shade, on a printed duvet. A blue gingham is featured both as sheets and as fabric by the yard. Carnations is planned as a stock program.
Both beds also coordinate with solid linen colors in blue, ivory, aloe and white. Sleepwear including classic man-tailored pajamas, a nightshirt, and kimono, also are featured.
With a signature design statement of couture living, Moss heads her home furnishings store and interior design firm — Charlotte Moss and Company — in New York and also has a line of home fragrances. In February 2006, she launched a collection of decorative fabrics and furniture with Brunschwig et Fils.
