Home Textiles Market Week Welcomes New Companies to New York’s Winter 2014 Market

Home Textiles Market Week® in New York will welcome a wide range of fresh and innovative bed, bath and linen vendors to the winter 2014 market, February 1-6, 2014, at NY NOW™, the Market for Home + Lifestyle (formerly NYIGF®) and 230 Fifth Avenue.

“We’re happy to see emerging brands like Anne Lewis and Haptic Labs join the market’s established brands, such as Chilewich, Kim Seybert, Matouk, Sefte and many others, this winter” said Christian Falkenberg, NY NOW director and GLM senior vice president. “No other U.S. Market presents such a wide array of mid-to-upper-end home fashions, alongside such a breadth and depth of related home and lifestyle merchandise.”

At NY NOW, the full spectrum of home textile resources is presented within the HOME collection, which is located on Level 3 of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Within the HOME Collection, three sections – Accent on Design®, Home Furnishings + Textiles and Tabletop + Gourmet Housewares, encompass some 200 mid- to high-end home textiles resources including bed and bath fashions, table linens, kitchen textiles, towels, decorative accessories, area rugs, window treatments and decorative fabrics.

MineField Village is an actual minefield-infested area in Cambodia, where women didn't have many job opportunities. Until @landminedesign came along. They taught women to create these beautiful delicate pieces of jewelry out of rolled paper beads. Check out 620 in Handmade to learn more about this amazing story. @ny_now
The smells. The beauty. It's giving us all the feels. Check out @tactilecraftworks in booth 9569
