Style Updates









The New Wave Collection in multi colorway by Momeni.

  American consumers are opting for the middle of the road when it comes to choosing a style for their home furnishings. Many traditional-styled offerings are less ornate than they were a decade ago. At the same time, contemporary designs have become warmer, less edgy with eclectic mixes of materials. Transitional styles that blend elements of both worlds have gained in popularity. Here are some examples of how classic styles—from modern through traditional—have been updated today with clean looks in fresh colors.

Clean Contemporary

Classic floral patterns take on a modern feel with Hallmart Home Fashion’s Seville bed, which features fabric flocked with a jet-black contemporary floral pattern applied to a printed, off-white cotton field. The comforter reverses to a solid black micro fiber fabric, which provides a striking contrast to the overall pattern of the face. The ensemble features two black Euro Shams with an inset white border; two standard shams that match the comforter and have a black flanged border; three decorative pillows with accents that complement the design of the overall collection and a pleated black bed skirt with a white stripe around the perimeter. Seville is available as a 9-piece queen and 10-piece king ensemble.

Les Silhouettes showcases “scissor-cut” flower tendrils enforced in their modernity by the restrained colorways of black and white, and light grey on beige (shown). Les Silhouettes is printed on 100% cotton satin. The design has been developed in the company’s own design atelier at Christian Fischbacher.

Updated Traditional

The new collection of printed bedding ensembles from Yehuda Silberberg Ltd. of Israel has been inspired by the look of antique upscale woven fabrics. Using superior watercolor effects and fine intricate designs, the resulting fashion enables the company to offer customers the rich, elegant look of fine woven fabrics in printed bedding.

The New Wave Collection from Momeni has evolved. Working in tandem with artisans to re-style New Wave, the pattern carries the influence of artwork, achieving an Art Nouveau quality that uses curved linear elements to shape the look of a Joan Miro or Picasso painting. Hand-tufted of a special blend of the highest quality Chinese wools, New Wave mimics the attributes of hand-carving, depth, and Tibetan-like weaves, most commonly found in hand-knotted pieces. This trend of updating the quality and design of hand-tufted rugs is a plus for buyers who don’t want to sacrifice style in order to fit a budget.

India’s Finest at International Home Deco Park

Great international sourcing depends on discovering quality, reliable companies, which can be an overwhelming task maneuvering through mammoth trade shows or unfamiliar cities in Europe and Asia. The International Home Deco Park (IHDP) in Delhi, India, makes sourcing easier by making sense of the process in several ways:
  • Year-round availability.
    The IHDP is a year round facility with showrooms open six days a week. “The IHDP is ready for business whenever a buyer is,” says Aditya Gupta, co-founder and managing director of IHDP. “This concept is different from most market centers in the world, where buyers must visit only during show dates.”

  • Quality companies all in one place.
    The 100 companies from all across India at the IHDP have been carefully vetted. Each product category has six-to-ten suppliers, so buyers can see variety in a reasonable amount of time. “A business traveller can see 50-to-60 showrooms in a matter of 2-to-3 days,” says Gupta.

  • Outstanding service facilities.
    “The showrooms, most ranging from 2,000-to-3,000 square- feet, are done to a world class standard,” says Gupta. Not only is the landscaped setting of the park relaxing and resort-like, but the Service Center insures a stress-free visit by providing business assistance in packaging and label design, forwarding, testing and inspection services. There are design and photography studios, a design library, and display rooms in which to coordinate product stories.

    “The saving of time and the broadening of horizons for a business visitor are great benefits,” says Gupta, “and the hospitality provided by IHDP is unmatched.”
