Night & Day Furniture Launches Expanded Eurohaus Collection at Las Vegas Market
Night and Day Furniture will debut their new and expanded Eurohaus Collection at Las Vegas. “We’ve added 2,000 square feet to the booth just to show it,” said Mike Gallawa.
“Our Eurohaus Collection has been out in the market a year now, and we felt it’s time to let this baby run. We have new sofa recliners, sofa beds, recliners, plus lots of new fabrics. We also have a terrific
modular grouping. It’s been an absolute thrill putting this together,” Gallawa said. “These items are really beautiful, well made and extremely comfortable.”
The Eurohaus Collection line-up features European styling, Japanese mechanisms and American comfort. Above all, you’ll find the Eurohaus Collection strong, well made, easy to assemble and trouble free.
Gallawa said, “How’s this for a great slogan: FROM OUR HOUSE TO EUROHAUS. Pretty corny, right? But that’s what it’s about, we’ve got something worth seeing and worth getting out there.”
See it all in Las Vegas, July 2006, at Night and Day Furniture, Booth P13605.
Ultra-Suede futon Covers from Midwest Imports
Beginning in July, Midwest Imports will start carrying a new line of ultra-suede microfiber futon covers. This will be the second product line in the futon cover market and follows the successful launch of Midwest Imports’ solid twill futon covers. These new covers will be available in seven colors to fit full size futon mattresses. Along with products from their futon frame line, these new futon covers will be part of Midwest’s summer promotion.
Omni Softgoods' Custom Workroom
While competitors have chosen to take manufacturing offshore and sell by lowering prices, Omni Softgoods has focused on top quality construction and impeccable service. Standard items ship within three business days, and custom work ships within five to seven days.
“We have experienced increased demand for our workroom capabilities,” says Robin Reid, owner of Omni Softgoods. “Consequently, we have developed a highly organized system to handle the increased volume of custom orders from our line of over 300 fabrics. Our retailers and designers routinely send us COM or a competitor’s fabric to be manufactured with Omni’s exacting standards, and we don’t foresee any slowdown in this trend.”
In this “big box” world, where people can buy in volume at low prices, there has been resurgence in minimalism and a desire for exclusivity. Omni is uniquely positioned to enable retailers to provide designer quality and distinction with speed and convenience.
Roman Shades Capture Sales At CottonBelle
Strong growth in fabric window treatments has contributed to another category of add-on sales for CottonBelle,” said president Mary Lou Rath. “We have been developing more extensive fabric collections over the past few seasons as our custom, design-driven business has increased. Window treatments are easy and natural add-on sales when merchandising is focused on coordinated looks throughout. Roman shades offer a casual, affordable way to dress windows in the living room, bedroom, kitchen or bath.”
Roman shades are now available in two styles in nearly all fabrics CottonBelle offers. The basic Roman Shade draws up into graceful, horizontal folds and falls nearly flat when unfurled. Rings are attached to pulling cords on the back of the shade. The tailored Roman Shade has stitching along the edge of the folds on the front that acts as a memory for the folds.
Both styles are easy to hang with velcro attachments, and CottonBelle helps determine correct measurements and installation.
