New York – Bloomingdale’s is launching the Barbara Barry Dream collection of bedding, the second step in the California interior designer’s home furnishings portfolio. The bedding collection follows by a year the launch of the furniture and home accessories collection – also introduced by Bloomingdale’s – plus fabrics and trimmings from Kravet
Joe Laneve, senior vp, home for the retailer, remarked, “It creates great synergy between the furniture and textiles businesses for Bloomingdale’s.”
The four bed collection “completes my vision for the home,” Barry observed. “It’s a natural extension and reflects all the small things that add up to a subtle impact on the senses.” Barry summed up her approach: “I’m trying to be anti-fashion, designing things that are easy to live with.”
“We will add to it significantly to the degree stores will support it,” said Michael Bernstein, ceo of DWI Holdings, the licensee for the bed and bath collections. For fall, he said, “We will have bath for sure.”
