New York — The fall 2006 bed and bath lines by Royal Velvet include four new comforters, a new coverlet, five sheeting collections, and four new bath collections. Scott Maddalene, senior vp, Home Brands Division, Li & Fung USA, summed up the appeal of current Royal Velvet collections to consumers as “home fashions that look and feel so luxurious that you would wear them if you could.” Among the introductions in bedding is the Chapman Collection, complementary quilted coverlets available in twin, full/queen and king, priced from $59.99 to $79.99. Royal Velvet Comforter sets range from printed sateen and texture sets starting at $109.99 to woven sets up to $159.99.
