AP adds dupioni, changes up bath
August 30, 2004,
American Pacific will add several silk-blended dupioni looks to its new bedding line for this year's New York Home Textiles Market, along with jazzing up its bathroom accessory constructions.
Persephone features pintucking in a wave effect or in a large diamond motif in mist, orchid and green. Spiral Stitch Dupioni is offered in taupe, green, mist, sienna and orchard. Parlor features a patchwork of pintucked satin and dupioni with embroidery, embossing, plus a velvet and ribbon flutter effect. Fiji has a dupioni base with all-over velvet flocking and floral-embroidered vines.
In bath, American Pacific is introducing funky layered resin accessories in five color combinations: yellow to burnt orange; light green to blue; lavender to purple; white to gray and black; and dusty pastel tones.
Other noteworthy bath designs include: Lucent Daisy, a resin look with insets of clear and opaque daisies; Glamour Cat, a novelty concept featuring felines in various poses with rhinestone accents, pink faux fur and a meowing lotion pump. Also featured are: Lacquered Mother of Pearl, a black resin design inlaid in mother of pearl; Spaced Out, a resin look with glow-in-the-dark decals and shower curtain; and Bedazzled, which consists of metal rolled in beads with mirrored mosaic pieces.
