The Import Collection expanded its accessories at the just-passed summer markets. Among the introductions were new mercury glass items, which have been strong performers for the company.

"We're selling a lot of mercury glass so we expanded the collection," said Josh Hong, vice president of design. "It creates a fine elegance."

While the company added about 30 new mercury glass items overall, eight were of a rose color, which has been getting a positive response, Hong added.

Other products focused on themes such as the industrial look, which included metal caliper tabletop stands and a stool with an iron finish and a black stone top. The company also added decorative pillows. "It's a trending hot look--people are asking for a quick way to change up a room," he said. The pillows come in 14 different patterns and in two sizes: the lumbar (12-by-24-inch) and large euro sham (32-inch-square) sizes.
