Louisville Bedding to debut Jennifer Gucci line

Louisville, Ky. -- Louisville Bedding Company (LBC) has entered into an agreement with Jennifer Gucci Home master licensor Veratex to debut a Jennifer Gucci branded line of basic bedding, including bed pillows, utility comforters, mattress pads and pillow protectors.

The complete line will be unveiled in the LBC showroom at 111 West 40th St. during the New York Home Fashions Summer Market to be held August 6-10.

“This is a special, more upscale line for us” said Scott Walters, national merchandise manager, LBC. “We’re tailoring this line to the more discriminating consumer that is looking for higher thread counts, premium cottons, natural fill products, and higher end down alternative products.”

The collection will comprise 400 thread count sateen, 600 thread count pima cotton sateen stripes, and 800 thread count basketweave jacquard made of Supima cotton. Bed pillows will feature premium down alternative fibers, as well as feather and down options. Coordinating mattress pads, down alternative comforters, and pillow protectors will round out the line.

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.
