AT THE NEW YORK MARKET —
CHF is launching the Kim Parker Home collection this week, an exuberantly patterned and colored trio of prints for bedding.
Parker, an artist and designer in both the home and apparel worlds, has created three beds CHF is featuring as duvets, but also making available as comforters, said Frank Foley, president.
The prints are featured on a luxury cotton sateen for both sheets and the top of bed fabric. Silk reversible throws and decorative pillows also are featured.
The duvet is priced at $249 for the queen.
The licensing of Parker, Foley explained, "is the latest step in what we see as creating a window for enormously talented people to succeed in this market."
The company's first step in this direction was with the expanding Nick Munro program, followed by the collection from artist Lynn Chase.
Parker's designs also are licensed to The Rug Company of London, New York and Barcelona; Block China & Crystal for tableware and fine art posters at Editions Limited. Her Journal collection, under license to Galsion Publishing, debuts this year.
