Ex-Cell extends window treatment lines

At the New York Market – Now in its third year in window treatments, Ex-Cell Home Fashions is finding good reception in the category, said David North, vp marketing development. Across all collections, the average retail target price per panel is $19.99.

This market, two of the overarching themes for the company, which is based in kitchen linens, tabletop, and bath products, extend to window: Boudoir and Opening Night. Each stresses feminine, opulent colors and textures.

These influences are key in elegant panels like Katelyn, pushing gold to the forefront, buttressed by an embroidered under-sheer; and in sheers like La Boheme and Constance, adorned with textured graphics and flocking. The reversible Marilyn panel drapes warmly with an undulating sheen.

Ex-Cell brings extra texture to the masculine black-charcoal-chocolate palette in its new urban line, Sunset, and tops it with a deeply textured wave-box valance. Menswear looks are much in evidence in other lines that feature plaids and geometric wovens making panels with a retail price target of $59.99 per pair.

The tween line expands with batik looks, woven stripes, and mini-grommets as a layered surface interest. “Color drives this collection,” noted North.
