Diane Murphy is appointed National Sales Manager for Glen Eden Wool Carpet
Glen Eden’s new Vision Collection offers numerous custom options.
MARIETTA, GA, September 8, 2009—Serving upscale markets is what Wools of New Zealand partner, Glen Eden Wool Carpet, is all about and, Diane Murphy, the company’s new national sales manager, knows what’s important to that customer.
Murphy has over 25 years experience in interior design, sales and management for the home furnishings industry. Before joining The Miller Davis Group as national sales manager in 2006, Murphy spent 18 years working for Kravet, a high-end fabric supplier. In addition to sales experience, Murphy has a degree in interior design and will also contribute to the development of new product.
A carpet manufacturer that specializes in wool broadloom, Glen Eden’s partnership with Wools of New Zealand is especially valuable in today’s market. “Interests in sustainable products, coupled with desires for value and beauty, make this the prime time for wool,” explains Murphy. “As we gear up for a better economy, Glen Eden’s potential becomes especially clear. Through the utilization of the company’s CYP machine and dye house, Glen Eden has incredible custom capabilities that we will be taking full advantage of as we move forward. It is an exciting time and I am pleased to expand my responsibilities to include working with Stewart Hay and Glen Eden.”
“Diane is an exceptional talent and will be an important asset as we move forward,” adds Stewart Hay, president of Glen Eden. “There is a lot of pent-up demand for luxury items. Today’s consumer is looking for products of value that will give her home personality. We’re positioned to meet this desire with new programs and custom capabilities. Testimony to this commitment is our new Visions Collection.”
The Visions Series catalogue, which features 10 collections of patterned designs, is hot off the press. Each design can be customized to fit a consumer’s needs. A color bank of 136 standard shades can be used in numerous combinations to create a unique look. Four face weight options help customers specify and price their carpet accordingly.
To ease the custom process, Glen Eden has created a Visions package, which includes the Visions brochure, a chain set of 136 pom colors and four weights of wool samples. With this package, retailers can offer customers a tremendous array of product options in broadloom and area rugs qualities. For more information on the Visions package, retailers can contact their local Glen Eden representative.
