We’re thrilled to have recently won Best New Product in the Dining Category by Home Textiles Market Week! We received our award during our showing at New York’s International Gift Fair (NYIGF) earlier this week! Most exciting is that the winning product was actually our premier collection of Table Linens by Blissliving Home. We were so excited with how this first-go at linens came out and we’re in the midst of expanding our table linen offerings for seasons to come. Here are some notes from the NYIGF Press Release:
