ATLANTASMART GOES GLOBAL WITH SHOWROOMS.
From tribal crafts in vibrant fabrics at the new Thailand pavilion to a commemorative Princess Diana throw in the McPhatter showroom to Japanese kimonos and hemp pillows at the International Design Collection, new products reflected AtlantasMart's continuing efforts to create an international marketplace.
Among the most colorful showrooms, Annise introduced its first collection of silk pillows and blankets made in Shanghai, China, emphasizing the continuing emphasis on Zen for the home in clean, sleek styles. Bibasse Ltd. presented hand-embroidered linen for the table and bed from Madagascar; first-timer Van Cleef of the Netherlands was showing all-cotton curtains, table linens and pillows; and Ulster Linens introduced Avonova table linens from Russia.
Vintage looks included Hungarian linens made into decorative pillows at Earth Works; Aubusson pillows at The French Market Collection and Cedars Hill; and tea-stained linen and Italian organza at French Laundry. La Villanella's Italian table linens and pillows had done so well in its first Atlanta show the company already planned to double its space in July.
