Meet Amber Dutton, TL at Home Production Manager

A valued and integral member of our team, Amber brings equal parts skill and positivity to her leadership role at our headquarter operations in Hudson, NY.

She is originally from the Hudson area, and joined our team about 18 months ago after studying and working in theater.

Earlier in her career,  she custom-crafted costumes for Broadway shows in New York City, and later managed the costume department for a theater in Albany, NY.

Since joining us 18 months ago, Amber has taken charge of our production department.

In her words: “I manage our inventory, I process all of the orders, I help her execute designs, I manage the made-to-order process, I even sew custom orders once in a while. Plus, I manage our website. I’ve even designed some of our pillows.”

Count Barrington, Brooklyn and Izzy among Amber’s original creations for TL at Home.

But one of her most valuable contributions is her ability to understand my design vision, as TL’s owner + creative.

Amber is similarly minded to me in how she organizes her thoughts around design. I can tell her anything and she totally understands what I want, and can offer constructive feedback to make it better. I don’t have to explain concepts to her from here to Sunday. She gets it all, from the get-go.

Amber is smart, capable and creative, and an all-around pleasure to work with. She has transformed our production department and has her hands on every order.

Our NEW Home in High Point, N.C.

We’re moving into a new showroom, with our national sales management partner CODARUS, just in time for the Fall 20220 edition of High Point Market, October 22-26.

Conveniently located at STOP 27 on the Redline Bus route, our showroom is at BROAD HALL. (The bus ride is free, and a map for Fall market will be available HERE in early October.)

Our colleagues at CODARUS have been busily revamping and remodeling the vintage industrial space – incorporating the necessary modern amenities while stoking the charm of its original exposed brick walls, hard-wood flooring and oversized windows that overlook High Point’s iconic Market Square + Tower.

TL at Home is located on the third floor, where our products will bask in the beauty of the space’s ample natural light.

In celebration of our NEW showroom, we at hosting a soigné sun-up soirée for the convenience and enjoyment of Market early birds (like us):

💐Brunch in Bed with TL at Home💐

9-10:30 a.m., on Friday, October 21

You’ll enjoy some tasty treats while perusing our newest bedding collections. And I will be there with our sales team, excited to greet you and give you a personal tour.

Made with love, our sheeting, duvets, coverlets, blankets and more are made of natural fibers and tout no-fuss attributes. Family friendly in every way, all of our items are designed to be enjoyed by your entire household (pets, too;) and easy to care for: Gentle cycle in the washing machine, low-heat in the dryer, then a firm shake and it’s right back to bed.

Summer Markets Recap + Looking Ahead

The summer season is not quite over just yet. There are still a few sit-back-and-relax days left on the calendar (thank goodness!) before we’re all back to school…back to life…back to reality.

We’re happy to report the summer markets (Dallas, Atlanta and Las Vegas) were better than expected. While traffic was a bit off, orders were high! We’re very encouraged by our customers’ collective BIG thumbs up for our new Summer 2022 intros – in particular, Georgie, Alice, Maria + Rumor.

Plus  our early 2022 introductions, including Cooper, Cypress, Piper and Paul, continue to grow and gain traction!

As we get settled back at home + our Hudson, NY headquarters, we are focused on photo shoots for new products, and I’m deep into new product development projects. 

More personally, I’m preparing to send my younger son off to college in the Fall. He’ll be attending Colby College, where he plans to study computer science.

Looking ahead, we are also in the midst of preparing to move into a new showroom in High Point, NC, with our national sales management partner, CODARUS. Renovations are well underway, and we are excited to welcome you!  Be sure to make plans to see us during Market, Oct. 22-26.

As always, with love,

Shari🤍

CODARUS Spotlight: Courtney Delancey

Meet Courtney Delancey.

She joined our Codarus family about one year ago and is already rapidly expanding our business across her important territory – Los Angeles and Central California.

Armed with 23 years of career experience in the home décor industry, Courtney is adept at helping designers source exactly the right products for their projects and clients’ needs. That includes TL at Home – which she said was what convinced her to join Codarus.

“When I saw TL and it’s beautiful bedding line, that is what sealed the deal for me. I love its East Coast aesthetic that easily crosses over to California. I knew I could do a lot with the brand because it has a niche. Plus Shari is a powerhouse. She really knows her stuff.”

Courtney’s self-described “greatest value” is her “background and experience working with the Southern California sophisticated customer for many years.”

Before joining Codarus, she spent 11 years with iconic Los Angeles furniture emporium HD Buttercup, and prior to that with an interior design firm in Venice Beach, CA, where she still lives today.

“I am a wiz at sourcing. Designers send me their mood boards and get to work finding them what they need – from bedding to lighting to case goods.”

Off the clock, Courtney loves doing her own kind of sourcing for herself and loved ones – treasure hunting for vintage and antique pieces at flea markets and thrift shops. She also loves riding her bike around town and swimming in the Pacific Ocean every day.

Come meet Courtney Delancey in person during the Las Vegas Market. She’ll be with us July 24-28 at our showroom: @CODARUS: World Market Center, B-354

CREATING CHARISHED MEMORIES- ONE STITCH AT A TIME

Recently, I took my first class in needle felting at a local shop near my new home.

In case you aren’t sure what needle felting is, it’s a transitional crafting art form in which wool is transformed into 3D objects using a barbed needle. In felting wool, you are agitating its fibers so they bond together to create a solid fabric that depicts a pattern or design of your choice.

Many of my favorite Christmas ornaments are needle-felted – which is why when I heard about the class I was eager to join in.

My teacher was great, very hands-on and helpful, sharing her knowledge and technique as well as some DIY books. On her instruction, I decided on a reference image to get me started. My base was a piece of stretched wool. I then layered it with other small pieces that I ultimately assembled into my own interpretation of my oceanfront lawn. (See top left image)

I’m so happy with my accomplishment that I’m framing it to hang it in my new house.

The experience of learning and creating was so much fun. It gave me joy to be in a class with others, working on a project and creating something with my hands using a fiber that I’m so familiar with in my own life and career.

Last month, I got to pass along that joy to my sister Elyse and her husband Shane when they came for a visit to see our new house. I seized the opportunity to put to good use my newly acquired skills, and gave them a mini lesson so they could create something to take home. I think their creations look amazing.

This image shows their joint results – hers the top, inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night; his below it, inspired by the view to our property.

The best part: These handmade pieces will serve as reminders of our weekend together.
