November 21, 2001,
Pawlet, VT — Springs will join the growing ranks of home furnishings companies making product under the Susan Sargent Designs umbrella.
Sargent, known for her signature colors and designs in hand painted bedding and high-end rugs, already has signed licensing agreements with Robert Allen@Home for a collection of decorative fabrics and Lexington for furniture — both of which are planned for a spring market launch — and York for wall coverings. John Richard offers high-end bedding ensembles for the furniture store distribution channel as well as decorative accessories.
Included in the debut will be 12 beds for adults and six for kids, each with bath coordinates that are not strict coordinates, McGinley explained.
The fabric collection at Robert Allen@Home will have about 50 skus, according to Gary Filippone, vp, design, mostly prints but some important piece dyed wovens.
The fabrics will be used by Lexington for furniture and also will be marketed through specialty fabric retailers, interior designers and specialty furniture retailers.
