Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, June 28, 2013
White Plains, N.Y. - Etailer One Kings Lane has selected more than 100 home products that will be exhibited at NYNow (formerly the New York International Gift Fair) for inclusion in the 2nd annual "Open House" exhibit during the show, which takes place Aug. 17-21 at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
The products were curated from more than 750 submissions by summer edition NYNow exhibitors and represent four key trends: Monochromatic, Neo-Traditional, Vintage with a Twist, and Well Cultured.
Select products from participants will be sold online at One Kings Lane for three days during the show, with proceeds benefitting Gift For Life, the home, gift and stationery industries' sole charity partner. In 2012, One Kings Lane raised $36,000 for Gift For Life through an online sale related to the Open House display.
There will also be seminar related to the exhibit. "Open House: Key Trends in Home Products" will be presented at NYNow on Aug. 18, from 8:30am-9:30am. Tickets, which cost $20 before August 13, and $25 afterwards, are available online at www.nynow.com/programs.
Partnering with One Kings Lane on the effort is Sandow Media, parent company of Home Textiles Today, Home Accents Today and Gifts & Decorative Accessories.
"We're delighted to continue our partnership with One Kings Lane and Sandow Media to present Open House at NY NOW," said Christian Falkenberg, NYNow director and GLM senior vp. "They collaborated closely to identify top trends and colorways that will have the greatest impact on home and lifestyle merchandise in the coming year."
A complete list of companies and products selected for each of the four trends is available online at http://www.nynow.com/TheShow/OpenHouseDisplayParticipantsSummer2013.aspx.
