New York - The weather may be cold, but vendors at the Javits Center, Pier 94 and in showrooms around town are offering up a sunny collection of merchandise for spring and summer.
In bedding, elegance and luxury lead the way. Both words are used often to describe 2014 collections, even in identifying lower-priced options with a high-end look. The other buzz word: modern. That means sleeker and sharper looks, even in traditional prints.
Soft home accessories suppliers are playing by their own rules, presenting a buffet of retro-to-contemporary looks in decorative pillows, throws and table linens. One can see parallels in fashion trends, but the strongest common denominator to be found is variety.
Ox Bow Décor presents its Ladies Playing Golf dec pillow made of 100% linen with a down fill.

Repurposing wood from defunct barns or salvaged pipes, as some suppliers are doing, to create caddies, towel bars and toilet paper holders, provides a sense of history and character to otherwise utilitarian items.
