THE HILL-SIDE LAUNCHES HOME WARES COLLECTION WITH CB2

by Stephen Garner

Brooklyn, New York-based menswear brand The Hill-Side has partnered with home goods store CB2 for the brand’s first full-scale foray into home wares. The collection, which launched in all CB2 stores and online at CB2.com on December 30, marks CB2’s first collaboration with a menswear brand.

The collection comprises a wide range of home categories including rugs, bedding, upholstered furniture, pillows, floor cushions, wallpaper and bath towels. All of the materials in the CB2 x The Hill-Side collection are versions of printed or woven fabrics the brand used in previous seasons, with some type of alteration applied to them.

“Ever since we started The Hill-Side people have been asking us when we’re going to make a home collection,” said Emil Corsillo, co-founder of The Hill-Side. “It felt like a very natural next step for us because our primary focus with The Hill-Side has always been the special fabrics we use. It’s easy to imagine those same fabrics as an upholstered couch or a set of curtains or a duvet cover. We’ve dabbled in the past with one-off upholstered furniture pieces, and we make our own small range of pottery that’s been very successful. But our hands are just too full with our own clothing line right now to start a full scale home collection. That’s why doing it with a partner made so much sense.”

A few of the highlights of the collection include: the Disintegrated Floral Print rug ($499-$999) and floor cushion ($249); the made in the USA Chambray Club Sofa ($999-$2,399); the Tropical Leaves printed sheet sets and duvet covers ($29.95-$129); the Palm Leaves Parlour Chair ($749); and the Workwear Blanket Stripe Dhurrie Pillow ($34.95).
