At the New York Market - HFI is expanding its outdoor offerings with several new styles and constructions as this segment of its business continues to experience much growth.
A new line of decorative pillows made of innovative outdoor fabrics from the company's American Fabrics division comes in eight embroidered designs - several of them coastal and tropical in theme.
More notably is that for the first time, HFI had created chenille jacquard pillows as well as single and double u-shaped cushions for wicker furniture - all for outdoor use.
The company is also adding a solid outdoor pillow in 15 bright patio summer colors.
All include matching table linens for complete lifestyle settings.
For the indoors, HFI is also introducing a new print collection of decorative pillows, table linens and pet beds made of micro fiber. There are 10 prints in this collection, and they are available as cotton/linen blends, 100% cotton, or 100% polyester canvas.
"Using the depth of our American Decorative Fabrics division, we are introducing 15 new jacquards," noted Neil Zuber, evp. "And there are nine chenilles and six non-chenilles. These cover a very broad spectrum of both color and design, including florals, paisleys, kilims, Southwest, and geometrics."
All are also available as matching table linens and pet beds.
"Shabby Chick" is that name of another new collection encompassing prints on linen in an array of looks, including small and large traditional florals in muted washed colors on a linen printed ground. All are available as pillows, table linens and pet beds.
