Homecrest Introduces New Montgomery Sling Collection

Furniture World News on

Homecrest Industries, Inc., is introducing the new Montgomery Sling collection to its line of casual outdoor furniture for 1998. "We're very pleased with the success of the Florida Sling and Holly Hill Sling collections introduced in 1997, so Homecrest is adding the new Montgomery Sling to our line to give retailers and customers another option in an aluminum framed sling," said Jan Trinkley, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Homecrest. Sling furniture has an advantage over cushioned furniture for those people whose leisure time is at a premium; sling furniture is low maintenance and easily cleaned while cushions can take longer to dry. High back and standard back swivel rockers, dining chairs, and love seat gliders, along with a chaise and an ottoman are available in the Montgomery Sling collection. The Montgomery Sling Collection, along with all Homecrest products, is available in the Sable finish, one of Homecrest's new frame finishes for 1998. "Green frame finishes have been very popular in the 1990s, but we feel the public is ready for something new. Homecrest is debuting the new Sable finish, a subtly textured taupe, as an additional frame finish in 1998." Homecrest offers nine other frame finishes, including the new Mica finish, which is a soft sheen, raw aluminum look, and over 90 fabric options. Fabric options include loom woven patterned jacquards in vinyl and acrylic, textured vinyl specialty weaves, and Elbertex jacquards, a unique combination of vinyl and acrylic threads that has the toughness of vinyl with the softer feel of acrylic. Homecrest provides the finest all weather-proof yarns, fade and bleed resistant solution dyed vinyl, and acrylic yarns that are UV stabilized. All fabrics feature weather-proof construction. Homecrest Industries is the four time winner of the Manufacturer Leadership Award, presented by the Casual Furniture Retailers Association for business ethics, product design, customer service, and quality.
