Furniture World News on

Kathy Ireland Home by Omnia Furniture announced that it will feature fabrics from three nationally and internationally renowned fabric mills at the summer Las Vegas Market, World Market Center Building “A” Space 256. At the January 2008 Las Vegas Market, Kathy Ireland Home by Omnia Furniture unveiled “Toray Ultrasuede” as its first featured upper-end upholstery fabric. Toray Ultrasuede (America), Inc. is part of the Toray Group, a $15 billion corporation started in 1926 with operations in nearly 20 countries around the world. It was the first fashion forward fabric to be completely machine washable and machine dryable. After many years of being used in the fashion industry, it was introduced as a much heavier weight upholstery fabric which enjoyed immediate success. Kathy Ireland Home by Omnia Furniture introduced all 97 colors of the “Ambiance” pattern at the January Market. Kathy Ireland Home by Omnia Furniture will build on this success with the expansion of its middle to upper end fabrics to include selections from Craftex, and Molteni Tessuti Srl., (Italy), that will be introduced during the July 2008 Las Vegas Market. Craftex Mills has a rich tradition of weaving intricate designs in one of the oldest mills in North America. Philadelphia, PA is home to this 105 year old mill. Molteni Tessuti, located near Milano, Italy, is a third generation family-owned company that has been weaving jacquard velvets since 1925. Molteni Tessuti utilizes its in-house laboratory to create fabrics from Wool, Hemp, Linen, Cotton, Raffia and Bamboo yarns. Natural and Organic fabrics are also part of Molteni’s line.
