Venus Home’s von Walstrom resigns
December 12, 2007,
Greenwich, Conn. -- Home textiles industry veteran Vivie von Walstrom has resigned from her post as director of design and marketing from Foothill Ranch, Calif.-based Venus Home.
While at Venus, von Walstrom twice won -- in 2000 and 2002 -- the Cotton Inc. Designer of the Year award for the bed and bath category. "I feel like I accomplished a great deal while at Venus, but it's time for me to try something new," von Walstrom told HTT.
Prior to Venus, von Walstrom was the executive vp at Baltic Linen Co., where she was instrumental in expanding the company's reach into retail, beyond its focus then on institutional business.
