Commonwealth Shows Suedes, Energy-Savers

Shangri-La was the hit of the market for Commonwealth Home Fashions, said Barry Goodman, vp national accounts. The faux silk dupioni foam-back panels come in a range of rich solid colors retailing for $29.99 per panel.

The Energy Zone also received a warm welcome, with blackout and thermal lining — features that retailers have said consumers are increasingly demanding. The faux suede and faux silk models come in eight solid colors with options like the one-inch Bristol Stripe. Goodman said these energy-saving treatments are in demand from such customers as JCPenney, Bed Bath & Beyond, Linens 'n Things, and Lowe's.

In a casual theme designed two markets ago for home entertainment rooms, the Media group returned strong for Commonwealth, with faux suedes commanding retails of $39.99. More urban still, and new at this market, was Manhattan, a woven suede with grommet tops, coming in a minimalist look or in the Circle embroidery motif; these panels have a target retail of $29.99.

A formal look was Persia, poly-cotton-lined faux silk in lengths to 120 inches with embroidered organza under-sheer and beaded top treatment. Available in seven colors at $29.99 and $19.99 for the under-sheer, Persia is a promising new look, said Goodman.
