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.

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.

The founders’ favorite item in the collection is the disintegrated floral rug, a cotton/wool blend rug handknotted in India. It started as a floral print for The Hill-Side’s scarfs and shirts, and the pattern was made large scale and looks like it’s on newspaper, the founders said. It comes in 5-by-8 and 8-by-10 sizes.

“Every guy needs things around his TV that look nicer than his TV,” one of the founders said.

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
