NEW YORK -- A special sales event hosted by One Kings Lane during the summer New York International Gift Fair raised $36,000 to benefit Gift for Life, the gift, stationery and home decor industries' charitable organization.
The sale offered curated items from NYIGF and One Kings Lane vendors as an extension of the show's Open House trend and product display, which was a collaboration with One Kings Lane, Pantone and Sandow Media, parent company of Home Accents Today. The products displayed reflected five home design trends with corresponding colorways.
The three-day online sale featured merchandise from about 20 suppliers, including Airedlesur, Apadana, Art & Cuisine, Authentic Models, Barraveld/dk living, French Laundry, Izola, Jamie Young, Jayes, Mary Jurek, Meirco, Picnic at Ascot, Pure Fiber, Romanov, Villa Home, Worlds Away and Wunderley.
"We are very pleased with the results of this collaboration," said Susan Feldman, co-founder and chief merchandising officer of One Kings Lane. "Providing quality products that benefited an amazing cause was a win-win for customers and for Gift for Life."
"A big thanks to One Kings Lane, the participating manufacturers, NYIGF and shoppers around the world for supporting Gift for Life," said Leslie Nathan-Street, chair of the Gift for Life board.
