Textiles showrooms spread at 7W
July 26, 2007,
New York – The showroom building at 7 West 34th is going to have its largest contingent of home textiles firms for the upcoming August markets, as several volume-oriented suppliers take up space in the building.
“Textile was ways going to be a piece of this building,” said Chris Collins, vp/general manager. He added: “This is probably the biggest push so far.”
Although 7W focused at first on gift suppliers (the long-time gift building at 225 Fifth Avenue had just closed), “the ultimate goal is to have a hybrid building,” Collins said. He envisions home textiles, gift/home accents, and tabletop each with about one third of the space.
The 11-floor showroom center recently opened two new floors.
