 BURNES OF BOSTON INTRODUCES 'AMERICA AT HOME' COLLECTION;
 FRAME AND ALBUM COLLECTION REFLECTS LIFESTYLE OF 1992
 BOSTON, April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- From fashion runways to car showrooms, "clean, casual and comfortable" is how trend analysts are describing the look of 1992. Whether shopping for a car, clothing or home furnishings, the emphasis will be on muted tones, natural materials and above all, good design. In keeping with this uncomplicated design trend, Burnes of Boston, the leading name in high-quality frames and photo albums, introduces its newest collection, "America at Home."
 "Our designers do extensive research to determine the pulse of the American consumer before planning our frame and album lines," says Lauri Kopmann, director of marketing at Burnes of Boston. "For America at Home, we tuned in to the renewed emphasis on the home and the family. More and more, Americans are looking to the home as a retreat from everyday stresses. 'Clean, casual and comfortable' aptly describes the decorating style they're choosing to create a much-needed relaxed environment."
 The America at Home collection boasts richly grained woods such as burl, cherry and birdseye maple as well as subtle color details to complement the newest looks in home decor. The simple elegance of the collection's shapes, grains and finishes makes it easy to coordinate frames as an accent for any room. Priced from $15 to $45 and available at better department and gift stores in the spring of 1992, America at Home reflects the return to natural looks that enhance the photos they hold without excessive ornamentation.
 In addition, Burnes has created a line of photo albums with the same unpretentious styling, priced from $5 to $20. Featuring patterns that echo the most popular trends in American wallpaper and fabric design, Burnes' albums create a fashion statement that will hold any group of photos with style. When used to decorate a room, Burnes' photo albums make beautiful and functional accessories and are a perfect complement to the America at Home collection of frames.
 "Today the focus of home decorating is to create a comfortable, warm atmosphere where you can escape from the demands of the outside world and enjoy time with your family," says Kopmann. "Americans are looking for a lifestyle that falls somewhere between the harried pace of the '80s and the 'back-to-basics' attitude of the early '90s. The simple designs of America at Home captures that lifestyle and allows you to highlight your photos rather than overwhelm them."
