This article reports that fabric and upholstery group Colefax has warned that the slowdown in the top end housing market is likely to hit its fabric sales in Great Britain this year, countering a 5 percent rise seen in the six months to October 31. It is reported that the US dollar's ongoing weakness against the pound offset a 12 percent rise in US sales, which limited group pre-tax profits to a 3 percent rise to £1.82m.
