In a bid to get her beautiful and colorful quilts to the masses, Denyse Schmidt has teamed up with Sarita Handa of India to produce a new line that retails at price points far below Ms. Schmidt's signature line (@$2400-$5400 - You can find the signature line at John Kelly on Franklin Street among other places). We originally saw these new designs at the Gift Show and took pics.
Following in the footsteps of textile-designers-turned-moguls Angela Adams and Emma Gardner, we'll see how Ms. Schmidt does. We were extremely pleased to meet her at our launch party at DWR and are only too happy to give her a boost. Her style is assured and working with an old pro like Sarita Handa seems like a very good idea.
The entire line has been appearing over the past year and is available at Mainecottage.com, Bloomingdales and Crate & Barrel. Smaller NY stores will be selling some designs as well. Prices will run $275-$300 for a queen size.
