Designer Walker to bow Cuddlebugs-n-Cocoons crib bedding  

Apex, N.C. -- Edward Walker, designer on TLC's “Trading Spaces”, along with licensee Cuddlebugs-n-Cocoons, will unveil a line of crib bedding in January 2009. Walker currently has an upscale line of tween/teen bedding with Cuddlebugs-n-Cocoons and the addition of crib bedding serves as a natural bridge between Cuddlebugs-n-Cocoons line of cozy baby blankets and Walker’s teen bedding.

“The designs of the Teen/Tween bedding gained quite a bit of attention and our buyers started requesting a line of baby bedding,” said Sandra VanSickle, Cuddlebugs-n-Cocoons president and founder. “We are thrilled to continue to expand our collection through this partnership with one of America’s most beloved designers.”

The Cuddlebugs-n-Cocoons Baby Collections will include a four-piece crib bumper, a dust ruffle, blanket and sheet. Coordinating accessories will include a toy bag, a diaper stacker and window panels and the collections will have cross-over designs from the teen line as well as new designs.

Designs include African Safari with black and white zebra print piped in chartreuse; Sylvia Ann, highlighted by a palette of soothing pinks and grey adorned with delicate white embroidery and Elizabeth, a sweet and subtle bedding group with dainty lavender, white, and grey tones with white scalloped embroidery.

The new Cuddlebugs-n-Cocoons Baby Collection will debut at the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market. Walker will be on site to greet visitors on Friday, Jan. 9 from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. and on Saturday, Jan. 10, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. He also will be hosting a design seminar entitled “Patterns and Textures with Today’s ‘Transitional’ Designs” on Friday at 2 p.m.

In addition to unveiling the new Edward Walker baby bedding line, Cuddlebugs-n-Cocoons is adding new styles and fabrics to its blanket line as well as new security and snuggle blankets.
