At Market -- Springs Global US has expanded its Court of Versailles luxury collection, not only with more product classifications but also with a broader color palette.
“We are pushing color forward a little bit more,” said Hermine Mariaux, director of licensing for the Court of Versailles brand. The latest introductions also nod toward seasonality, an important distinction for carriage trade retailers.”
There are six new top of bed introductions: La Vie En Rose, Cadeau, Marquis, Royal Brocade, Valois, and Acanthus. They range in style from an old-fashioned rambling rose pattern (La Vie En Rose) to a mocha quilt in silk with appliqué work in cotton velvet accents, with appliquéd motifs outlined by hand quilting (Valois).
In sheets, Court of Versailles has debuted Caprice, an embroidery in porcelain blue on white and gray. The 400-count sheet is available in six colors. Also new in sheeting is Chainette, an embellished sheet with a chain embroidered cuff. The 400-count sateen is offered in three colors.
Spring is introducing two new comforters in the collection: Fleur de Lis and Lily, each calling upon the heritage of French linen design, and each with coordinating pillows in down or down alternative.
In blankets, Court of Versailles has added a new range of colors to Satine, a silk-filled blanket. Other choices are Cotton Caress and Twill. A whisper-weight throw, Baby Alpaca, is woven in Peru on vintage Italian looms by master weavers.
In bath, Court of Versailles has introduced two bath towels to complement bedding: Opulence, with a jacquard border of leaf motifs adapted from the Caprice sheets collection, and Belle Epoque, which draws upon the same design palette as Opulence.
Springs also created four new bath accessories collections: Tea Leaf and Hammered Metal, both with metallic influence; and Belle Epoque, and Repousse.
Two shower curtains – Chateau and La Vie En Rose – offer coordination to Court of Versailles bedding patterns.
