ATLANTA-The Williamsburg brand will continue to expand with introductions from more than 10 licensees at the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market, Jan. 11-18. Each new product fuses contemporary décor trends with entertaining and decorating traditions of the past, using Colonial Williamsburg’s archive as inspiration.
“The breadth of introductions in Atlanta showcases the strength of the Williamsburg licensing program in creating a variety of year-round and seasonal products,” said John Hallowell, president of hospitality and products for The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. “The expansion of the trend meets tradition concept further propels Williamsburg into a distinctive design niche.”
Introductions include three gift and home accent collections from Creative Co-Op; two trend-right, geometric rug patterns from Capel; damask and botanical top-of-the-bed and table linens designs, as well as holiday product, from C&F Enterprises; new paper goods from Kate McRostie, Caspari and Jason; pineapple-themed ceramic giftware from Andrea by Sadek; a sterling silver angel ornament from Reed & Barton; wreaths, swags and other décor from Winward; miniature buildings from Department 56; quilt-inspired figures from Jim Shore; and a gardening-themed spring couple from Byers’ Choice.
The purchase of Williamsburg products supports The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s educational programs and mission.
