Croscill, Lucia Designs Debut Savvy Home
September 13, 2009,
Croscill Home is introducing Savvy Home, a new collection of decorative curtain rings and panels under an exclusive licensing agreement with Lucia Designs by Lisa Michelle, Inc.
Commented Lisa Granger, president and ceo of Lucia Designs, "I am thrilled to be a part of Croscill Home and the business opportunities going forwards. Carl Legreca and Lydia Irwin and their team have a passion for innovative products and operate the company with integrity and enthusiasm."
The new decorative rings are circular with a trough set in, and the rings turn 360 degrees so the drapery can flow — "others don't," explained Lydia Irwin, Croscill vp of product development. A small clip attaches to the welt top of the drapery.
There are three styles: "Enamel with blingy beads or jet beads, solids, and faux pearls," said Irwin. Each style has its own curtain — all showy fabrics in polyester/silk blends with specific borders. The rings are packaged in groups of seven at $16.99; panels range from $39 to $59. "The next step is shower curtains, and they'll be great for that but they have to be modified," Irwin explained.
