Company C makes bedding debut
Tom Edmonds -- Home Textiles Today, November 15, 2002
Concord, NH — Offering a range of boldly colored and patterned area rugs since 1994, Company C has now translated that look to bedding and recently bowed its first group of top-of-bed and sheets with coordinating rugs and decorative pillows.
"We have always wanted an extension up from rugs," said Chris Chapin, who heads up product development, "and we wanted to do bedding rather than table because bedding has more fun coordinates." Customers have also been waiting for the company to break into bedding, she added.
Most of the five initial groups, which premiered at High Point last month, have their roots in a particular design or theme from the company's rug collection, such as garden, beach and lodge. A top-selling rug called Kaleidoscope, for example, became the inspiration for the quilted bedding collection of the same name, though it is paired with a striped rug called Razzmatazz. The pattern is available in quilts, standard shams and decorative pillows.
All of the bedding is made in India of cotton poplin and will begin shipping in January. A queen duvet will retail for approximately $210, while a flat/fitted sheet will be $100.
