High Point Market Preview: Wendy Jane by Gabby Performance Pillows

Summer Classics is thrilled to announce the debut of Wendy Jane by Gabby, our new curated collection of indoor and outdoor performance pillows featuring hundreds of stylish patterns, prints and solids. These fashion forward accents will premier during High Point Market to be held April 13-18, and is comprised of more than 600 pillow options each handcrafted in the USA and consist of down-feel inserts wrapped in water-repellent, easy-to-clean covers constructed with solution dyed acrylics.

The innovative pillow line is the inspiration of Wynne White Martin, daughter of Summer Classics founder Bew White, who after spending a lifetime in the industry saw a real need in the marketplace.

“I created Wendy Jane because I wanted a plush, stylish pillow for every lifestyle that would mix well with our Gabby and Summer Classics collections,” she said. “Just because it’s indestructible doesn’t mean you have to forfeit style.”

Wendy Jane pillows consists of a down-feel insert wrapped in a water-repellent cover. These easy-to-clean covers are constructed with solution-dyed acrylics that come in sizes ranging from lumbar to bolster to several square sizes. There are hundreds of playful patterns, prints and solids to choose from that are exclusive to Wendy Jane and have stylish edge options including double flange, single flange, flat welt, and leather corner cap designs.

“Listening to customer feedback has always been a core strength of our business,” said William White, President of Gabriella White. “So when we heard our customers expressing the need for a luxury performance pillow line, we felt it was a natural fit for our business that has always had a strong focus on textiles, and also as an opportunity to grow into the accessories market.”

And when it came to naming the company, Martin knew immediately that she wanted to name the pillow line after her mother, Wendy Jane. “Because family is such an important part of the business, I wanted to give it a family name,” she said. “And my mom has always been the backbone who holds our family together and stood by my dad through his dream of building this company.”

Please join us at High Point Market in Showroom IH 201 at 4:00 pm on Saturday, April 14 for a ribbon cutting where we officially launch Wendy Jane by Gabby.
