Nicole Miller branching out at BB&B
Cliff Annicelli -- Gifts & Dec, February 9, 2004
NEW YORK — The Nicole Miller brand is preparing to explode into a wide assortment of hard and soft home goods — all of which will be exclusive to Bed Bath & Beyond.
Miller’s inaugural home line of bedding and bath, which began arriving at retail a little under one year ago, has been pulled out of department and competing specialty stores and is now also exclusive to Bed Bath & Beyond.
"It's proof of the country's ability to respond to good design," said Bud Konheim, Nicole Miller CEO.
Nicole Miller will expand into 18 broad product categories under a series of licensing agreements with eight vendors.
In addition to the bedding and bath already in the stores, Nicole Miller announced the line will expand into kitchen/table linens, organization, personal care items, ceramics, glassware, tabletop coordinates, resin giftware, "miscellaneous" items such as memo boards, metal goods such as ornament boxes, paper products, candles, framed art/wall décor, floral arrangements and decorative accessories.
Bedding and bath licensee Revman International is supplying the bulk of soft home as well as storage/organization items and personal care products. Additional licensees include Ambiance, Wingeroff, Boston International, Pacific Trade, Michael Alan Design, Cord Crafts and International Silver.
