CONCORD, MA, (PRWEB) May 5, 2006
Known throughout the giftware industry for its high quality standards and contemporary design aesthetic, Swing Ltd. artfully combines these strengths once again with its new lines of beautifully functional scrapbooks and storage boxes. Employing a variety of rich materials throughout, the new collections incorporate woven iridescent natural-fiber textiles, supple bonded leather, contrasting hand-stitched accents and textural grosgrain ribbon. Swing introduces its new collections, including fresh lines of frames and albums, at the National Stationery Show at the Jacob Javits Center in New York, from Sunday, May 21 through Wednesday, May 24.
Homeowners will want to prominently display Swing’s Camilla and Mosell storage boxes. Exquisitely functional for storing small household items like photos, CDs or sewing supplies, the boxes themselves are anything but ordinary. Espresso-finished wood and elegantly textured bookcloth encase the Camilla boxes, while the box lids feature photo-display windows with delicate, contrasting hand-stitched design accents. A family of three albums, each with spines of rich, bonded leather and photo-opening details on each of the covers completes the Camilla range.
Iridescent, natural fiber textiles woven from grass, jute, bamboo and arrowroot cover the lids of the Mosell line of boxes, available in valet, multiuse and document sizes. Crafted from solid wood with an espresso finish, the valet box lid includes a small photo display window. Bookcloth covers the multiuse and document boxes, and a small label plate awaits personalization. A matching photo frame complements the Mosell box collection, which comes in three beautiful colors: bordeaux, natural and navy.
It’s bound to be the envy of creative types everywhere. Scrappers, artists, writers, family historians, students and moms-on-the-go—urban or rural—will all appreciate the simple, classically modern designs of Swing’s Chloe collection of scrapbooks, journals and notepads. Made of soft, supple bonded leather, all Chloe items include a grosgrain ribbon place-marker and signature bone-colored, hand-stitched thread accents. The journals, notepads and notesketches feature elastic band closure details. Configured in an “S” shape, notesketch contains two books in one: a journal side filled with lined pages and a sketchbook side of blank pages. Both sizes of Chloe scrapbooks include a die-cut cover window, which showcases the contents of the first page. Swing offers both the Chloe and Camilla lines in shades of café, pear, pomegranate, pool and stone.
Regarded by industry experts as trendsetters in the photo accessories market, Swing Ltd. offers a broad selection of new frame and album collections as well. With its wide appeal and classic good looks, the Circa collection of frames and albums is destined to become a favorite in homes across the country. Bordeaux or navy bonded leathers cover both frames and albums, making them a delight to touch and to look at. The Circa frames feature a tonal stitch detail, while the albums include a narrow, horizontal band inlay of striped, printed canvas.
Delicate patterns form the basis for the Celia collection of albums and coasters. Made of bonded leather with top-grain leather edge accents, each album displays a striking paisley pattern, artfully embossed. The Celia photo coaster sets come with four coasters, each in a shade of the main color: bordeaux, café or navy. The coasters, which display one photo each, are imprinted with patterns matching the printed endsheets of the albums.
Basic black never goes out of style, and the collection of Trent photo albums exemplifies this classic style statement. The Trent albums, bound in faux leather, effortlessly rise above the crowd with their signature vertical band of bookcloth material perfectly framing the photo openings on the front covers. Trent is available in five sizes, the largest holding up to 288 photos.
Oxford, Swing’s new collection of wall frames, stylishly complements any home or office décor. Available in single, triptych and quad formats, the walnut-finished solid wood Oxford frames include generously proportioned double mats. Matching CD frames include display space for cover art for one CD, and the CD itself, set in a beveled mat.
Sleek in both look and feel, the Boca frame collection is modern to its core. Painted color accents of walnut or stone embellish walnut-finished bentwood frames. In addition to traditional formats, Swing offers the Boca style in the popular picture-flipper format displaying two photos side-by-side. All told, it holds 100 photos.
Painted glass mat accents paired with beveled, espresso-stained solid wood give an elegant polished appearance to the Milo frame collection, available in bordeaux, natural and navy and in two sizes.
Sacchi has expanded its line of mailable, greeting card frames to include a collection of Mini frames. Combining a high-quality mat and faux-leather borders, the mailable Mini frames display a favorite photo with a simple message such as “Sexy,” “Miss You,” “Laugh,” “XOXO,” “Unforgettable” and “Cute.” The greeting card frames come in six vibrant colors: black, fern, gerbera, sport red, teal and violet.
