For the record

The name of Leo Kavanaugh, vp, merchandising for Country Curtains, was misspelled in last week's issue.

Also in last week's issue, The Robert Allen Group was identified as an investment company. It is, in fact, a designer and marketer of decorative fabrics and furnishings. Its lineup includes Robert Allen, Beacon Hill Fabrics, Robert Allen Contract, Robert Allen @ Home, Ametex and the Beacon Hill showrooms.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
