Brentwood: Taking names and writing orders

New York -- Brentwood Originals reached a record during this week’s New York Home Fashions Market in the dec pillow and chair pad categories.

"This week we've taken more than $1 million in 'at-once' orders," said Loren Sweet, president.

He explained that because most retailers have been tight on inventories in the face of a struggling economy and slow traffic at the stores, "now they need new inventories, and we've had people come in looking for goods that we can ship to them right now."

As for newly introduced product for market, Brentwood showed a healthy assortment of bright, textured looks as well as many varieties of animal looks -- from skins to pictorial tapestries. Textured tonal looks that take a basic style up a notch or two in design and price point offer new opportunities for contemporary tastes, as well.
