Melrose Home has introduced eight fashion forward collections dubbed as Safari, Palm Isle, Emilio, Isabella, Catania, Melrose & Vine, Annette and Priscilla, in its temporary showroom in New York City in September 2003. The firm has expanded its product categories since its entry into the textiles business with decorative pillows in 2001. Melrose president John Emrani explained that the company designed its own fabrics and have a design staff from its apparel group. He added that the company introduced more fabric overlays, embossing and faux fur fabrications for the 2003 collection. While Safari is an embossed velvet duvet with a fern motif in a natural colorway with matching bed skirt and faux fur throws, Palm Isle has a sheer overlay with interspersed palm trees on intricate square within a square jacquard with piping along the frame and borders. On the other hand, Isabella features an elegant Asian-inspired floral vine motif on yarn-dyed poly/cotton textured jacquard in champagne and celadon colorways.
