Universal Home opens NY showroom
October 1, 2001,
New York — Bath ensemble manufacturer and importer Universal Home Fashions — a newcomer to the New York Home Textiles Market — has opened its doors with a newly remodeled 3,500-square-foot showroom at 261 Fifth Ave., suite 410.
Chris Certosimo, president, co-owns the company with a bath product manufacturer based in Guangzhou, China.
For the company's launch this month, Universal will introduce 20 shower curtain collections with full coordinates — including towels and accessories such as wastebaskets, tissue boxes, tumblers, soap dishes, lotion pumps, toothbrush holders, jewelry trays and cotton ball jars. Constructions for shower curtains include poly-cotton, cotton, chenille and vinyl. Accessory constructions include ceramic, wood, resin and earthenware.
"I already have more than 30 appointments," Certosimo said. "I expect our first market to be a very good one."
Price points for shower curtains range from $14.99 for polyester and poly-cotton constructions to $29.99 for cotton and chenille varieties. Vinyl shower curtains range from $7.99 to $9.99.
