Ann Gish, Thomasville Collaborate on Bedding

NEW YORK - Ann Gish has designed three new bedding sets for Thomasville Furniture, all of which "softly" debuted in Thomasville's at the October High Point Market.
     The co-branded bedding, which will be available only through Thomasville's retailers and dealers, includes three sets by the luxury bedding designer: Harlow in Ivory for the Studio Collection, Mystery for the Lantau Collection and Midnight Sun for the Spellbound Collection.
     HTT sister publication Home Accents Today spoke with Gish in her IHFC Interhall showroom, where she expressed excitement about the collaboration.
     "It's exclusive to Thomasville and was made just for them. It's not as expensive as my top-of line, but it's a nice price point for both of us," she said. "I think it looks beautiful, and Thomasville's showroom designer has made it look even better. They've done a really fabulous job."
     Gish said she was approached by chief creative officer and vpretail Greg Heller, who has been busy revamping Thomasville's retail division since being hired there, from Baker Furniture, a year ago. Heller brought in Kim Schuster-Plunkett to develop the company's fabrics, accessories and top of bed.
     "Greg has changed the look of Thomasville in a huge way," Gish added. "Thomasville today looks nothing like the old Thomasville."
