Kimberly Lewis Home is gearing up to launch our 2nd collection of boutique wallpaper, pillows, & fabric by the yard! We need your help!
Kimberly Lewis Home is a Brooklyn based design studio that specializes in playful patterned home furnishings. Feel free to check out our website with our current products at KimberlyLewisHome.com you can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest as well!
I originally launched Kimberly Lewis Home in May of 2011 at The International Contemporary Furniture Fair. I debuted a collection of boutique wallpaper, 4 patterns in 2 colorways each. We have been slowly growing over the last year with new products such as pillows, trays, and notecards. I have been working on our newest collection and I am dying to share it with the world!
Where will the Funds Will Go?
If I reach my goal of $8,000 the money will be used to bring the new collection from my computer screen into actual products! I have 5 new patterns that I will make into wallpaper as well as fabric by the yard.
I will also be printing the patterns from the first collection on a beautiful linen which will be a new addition. I would also like to add to the pillow collection and introduce the new patterns in pillow form as well. Besides launching the new collection I also need the money to reprint some of the first collections most popular patterns. Our Wallpaper Sierra in Cadmium is flying off the shelves and we need to reprint asap!
Since the beginning I have been working with local manufacturers and I plan on continuing that with the second collection. Everything is printed not far from NYC and all of the pillows are sewn right here in the Garment District. Even the pillow fillers are made here in the US. Launching a new collection isn't cheap and this is where you come in!
What do the new patterns look like?
I have 6 new patterns that I can not wait to show you! (I may introduce more if I go over my goal as well) I have taken a lot of inspiration for a handful of patterns from one of my favorite places, the beach! The patterns have a dash of nautical, a nod to some classic motifs and a whole lot of color and fun! Oh and did I mention Flamingos?! I will be unveiling more patterns as I start to climb to my goal but here is a sneak peak!
Tell me more! Details Please!
There are a lot of behind the scenes details that go into designing a collection. These include color matching, sampling sewn products, and strike offs. What is a strike off you ask? It is a full-sized cropped section taken from the overall image/artwork. It’s produced on the same material with the same finishing as the final product. It provides you with an exact sample of the final product.
I will also be using the money to help spread the word. Don't forget the marketing materials! I will be developing a look book with photos of the products, a line sheet to distribute online and in person. I will also need to make samples to give to potential clients as well as a sample book to take with me to client meetings and for trade shows. Another big part of the success of the products is getting them into the public eye, It is my goal to exhibit the new collection at a trade show in NYC where I will be able to reach buyers, press, and the media. If I go over my goal all of the money will most likely be used for trade shows since they are pricey to exhibit.
Any contribution amount will help reach my final goal, please pass on my Kickstarter project information to your family & friends and post it on your Facebook & Twitter accounts.
