Nostalgia Home taps Lamken, Fishman

Vernon Hills, Ill. – Nostalgia Home Fashions, a Chicago-based importer and distributor of bedding and other home textiles, has added two new managers to its team.

Robert Lamken, a 20-year veteran of the home textiles industry, has been named national sales manager. His prior experience was at Fieldcrest Cannon and more recently, Beacon Looms.

"Our priority is account penetration, getting our product to more consumers," said Lamken. "We plan to really build on the momentum we have right now."

Hillary Siegel Fishman has been named director of new product development, initially focusing on trend and color. She previously designed textiles prints for Sears and Carole Hochman Designs, and most recently managed Concepts and Trends at Liz Claiborne, supervising development of all brand seasonal trends, color palettes and fabric prints.

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.
