Luxury Home Decor: Wanting to bring modern textile design to the bedding world, Christiane Lemieux founded Dwell in 1999. Since then, Dwell has added table linens, children's bedding, and baby products to its repertoire. At the New York International Gift Fair in January 2007, George Little Management, LLC gave Dwell its Overall Excellence Award in the Accent on Design division for consistently bringing innovative design into bedding and other soft good categories, specifically pioneering the category of contemporary crib bedding.

Wild bird and nature lovers will delight in Dwell's Chinoiserie collection of bedding, pillows and tabletop linens. New for 2007, Chinoiserie features a minimalist but elegant motif incorporating colorful illustrations of songbirds delicately perched on contrasting black-and-white branches.



Dwellbaby collections dare to go beyond the typical pastel pink and powder blue accessories of old, boasting a wide selection of baby linens that are as stylish as those made for their parents. In addition to crib sets, crib fitted sheets, crib skirts, bib and burp sets, boudoirs, stroller blankets, knit blankets and hooded towels, Dwellbaby has soft blocks and stuffed animals that coordinate with Dwellbaby collections patterns.

Bridging the gap between Dwellbaby and grown-up Dwell is the new Dwellkids line, launched in 2007. Like Dwellbaby, Dwellkids patterns are designed to be fun yet style-conscious. Collections such as Alphabet, Cowboy and Cowgirl put a modern spin on traditional children's designs, while designs like Dots, Garden Blossom and Clover will appeal to kids who want styles that are more grown up.
