Interlude HomeTo Introduce coordinated Seating Line In Las Vegas

Furniture World News on

Interlude Home will introduce coordinated seating, a first for the multi-branded line at the January 2007 Las Vegas Market. By the spring High Point Market, the seating program will grow substantially, according to Jim Calhoun, Upholstery Design and Product Development Manager. "The new chairs, sofas and ottomans in the collection are every bit as smashing as the company’s huge assortment of decorative accessories and accent furniture. Whether it’s a traditional design from Signature or a contemporary piece from Studio, the Interlude look is both classic and classy—a potent mix of the familiar and the completely unexpected. The exclusive new seating ideas are also wonderfully versatile…the kind of furniture that always seems to work well no matter where it’s placed," said Mr. Calhoun. The new upholstery program has great benefits for Interlude’s customers: Interior designers and retailers, large and small. “The addition of the new upholstery program to our accent furniture and decorative accessories offers our customers total lifestyle solutions from a single vendor,” says Sean McFadden, Interlude Home Vice President of Sales. “Retailers will appreciate how easy it will be to create big-impact displays with merchandise that all looks great together. Another big benefit: Fewer mistakes on the sales floor. A fully coordinated offering really helps keep assortments focused and fresh.” As the program gets underway, Calhoun says the first introductions will be covered in rich, light-neutral fabrics that range from chenilles and velvets to nubby linen weaves. Created from a wide variety of species, the exposed wood frames are finished in medium to dark tones with not much sheen. “We’ve paid a lot of attention to scale and proportion, and as a result, the chairs are not locked into one specific setting. They work as an accent or at tableside equally well,” Calhoun says. “Likewise, the designs have been adapted for use with a variety of décor styles. Taken as a whole, the collection is eclectic, but thoughtfully so.” Like the fashion house that it is, Interlude Home introduces new designs at all major markets. Unlike most home furnishings companies, Interlude sells exclusive designs directed by a large in-house design team. Another point of difference is Interlude’s disciplined approach to product development. Guided by the needs of each of its five lifestyle-driven brands and further inspired by trend-directed themes within those brands, Interlude’s designers seem to work magic. But it is their hard work that allows the company to consistently introduce coordinated new product that can sweep a retail sales floor into the next fashion season with ease and great style.
