The decorative pillows market has continued to be a lucrative market in the home textiles industry in the U.S. in 2003. With a rough estimate of $500 million in retail sales, the market is made the more all attractive by their expansion as coordinates to other offerings through imports from China and India. Arlee Group chief executive officer Bud Frankel has said that decorative pillows is a fairly easy business to get into. Ashford Court's Neil Zuber added that those in the gifts or home textiles business can easily enter the decorative pillows market. Another factor influencing the product's growth is its increased sales as part of bridal collections. Companies such as Baltic Linen Co. and Barth and Dreyfuss are offering six to eight decorative pillow styles and a variety of embellished looks, colors and shapes.
