CB2 Partners with Menswear Retailer
January 5, 2016,
NEW YORK—CB2 has teamed up with Brooklyn-based menswear retailer The Hill-Side for a collection of home furnishings based on its floral patterns.
The Hill-Side’s disintegrated floral rug
Having been in business for six years, The Hill-Side is best known for its fabrics, its founders said in a video, and it started out making handkerchiefs and ties. From the beginning, people would come to its store in Williamsburg and ask if they could buy textiles from it to make curtains, the founders said.
The collection includes furniture, rugs, bath textiles, decorative pillows, even a wallpaper pattern, and ranges in price from a $6.95 bath towel to a $2,399 chambray club sofa.
“Every guy needs things around his TV that look nicer than his TV,” one of the founders said.
