On February 2004, the showrooms of bedding and table linens suppliers John Matouk & Co. and Sferra Bros. will be found farthest east on 26th Street. Located at 11 East 26th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues, the new space is about 40 percent bigger than the companies' current location, and offices will be overlook Madison Square Park in New York City. The move coincides with the 75th anniversary of John Matouk & Co., founded by Matouk Jr.'s grandfather as a table linens company in 1929. The company's growth has resulted, in part, from the strengthening of its major accounts, an increase in its customer base, and the creation of the Matouk catalog for both retailers and sales representatives.
