Looks to Look for
October 12, 2001-- Home Textiles Today,
Reds are still ravishing. Embroidered looks keep topping themselves. And quilts show no sign of slacking off. But that's just part of the story…
Hot Blues: Move over, sage. As color stories go, blues are emerging as a contender.
DAN RIVER's Blue Lotus bedding echoes design themes used in classic Chinese porcelain and nods in the direction of things to come. It's a new introduction in the company's moderately priced, 220-count, all-cotton Studio bed-in-the-bag line. WINDHAM WEAVERS lends a splash of blue to the boards with a selection from its new line of woven cotton scatter rugs.
Toile in the Family: The traditional has transitioned into the surprisingly contemporary with the new crop of toile designs hitting the market.
REVMAN's black and cream Tropical Toile pairs toile with a snappy stripe to produce a crisp look. KAY DEE DESIGNS pulls up to the table with Marseille, part of its new Provence/Tuscany collection.
The American Way: With a renewed spirit of patriotism growing across the land, patterns once considered quick hits for Independence Day are suddenly in demand. DAVIDSON COTTON's Spectator embellished towel employs a simple stars and stripes motif. BESS MANUFACTURING's new dec pillow proves once again that Old Glory looks plenty glorious all by herself.
