Guilford takes wraps off Neuburger lineup
Marvin Lazaro -- Home Textiles Today, October 22, 2001
Guilford Home Fashions continued to build on its new brand portfolio with the formal launch of the Karen Neuburger at Home collection at this month's market.
The New York-based home textiles arm of Guilford Mills unveiled the full line of licensed beds at its showroom at 295 Fifth Ave.
Guilford originally previewed the collection in the spring but has since expanded the line to include three woven ensembles and one knit, all with designs that are very friendly to the master bedroom. The 250-count sheet has a scalloped and embroidered hem.
"The collection has lots of tailored dress-making details like buttons, ties, piping and piecing," said Herb Briggs, president of Guilford Home. "This is not just another printed sheet set."
Layered into the collection of sheets, top-of-bed and decorative pillows are cotton coordinate throws as well as matelasse embroidered coverlets.
"Karen Neuburger has built a fabulous nationwide following in the department store arena by answering the needs of women in the basic areas of comfort, self-nurturing, fulfillment, nesting and just plain fun," said Karen Reichenbach, vp, licensing for Guilford.
Guilford's licensed line of Jockey at Home bedding also enjoys the addition of several new beds aimed at the dorm/college market but with designs that translate easily into the home.
Three male and three female patterns are new, with the boys receiving a blue chambray sheet set and the girls a green chambray set. Along with the sheets, a comforter and sham will be included as well as a gift with purchase that will be either a Jockey bath towel or a pair of boxer shorts, or both. Enclosed in a plastic drawstring duffle bag, a full and an extra-long twin size are offered with a $99 price point for both.
