Ernest Hemingway expands luxury bedding

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA — The adventurous, worldly lifestyle of Ernest Hemingway has inspired a new line of luxury bedding, which premiered at the recent High Point market.

Joining a well-established list of Hemingway licensees, the Austin Horn collection has bowed four collections that focus on places Hemingway lived during different periods of his life: the Midwest, Paris, Africa and Key West, FL.

Hemingway was a "person with a strong image," said Dian Austin, president of the Austin Horn Collection, based here. "He inspired people with his great sense of adventure and travel."

The Austin Horn Collection is known for its high-end bedding, which uses "premier, gorgeous" European fabrics with brocades and chenilles, she said. The new Hemingway license is a natural extension of the line and allows the company to offer its high-end accounts a line "with a more casual feeling and a friendlier price point."

The collection's introductions included three lines from existing themes, as well as a new one for all of the Hemingway licenses. The Austin Horn collection includes comforters, duvets, bedskirts, decorative pillows and throws, and everything coordinates with the Hemingway furniture line from Thomasville Furniture.
