by | Dec 22, 2016 | Products | 0 comments

Bonningtons continues to expand its Kingfisher Festive range which will be displayed, fully merchandised at Harrogate Christmas & Gift 2017.

The skilled team of buyers, headed up by buying manager, Kate Smalley, has been researching trends and collecting market information to help them source some of the best-selling decorative lines.? The result is the development of three core Christmas collections.

Having identified a continuing surge in demand for the Scandinavian ?look?, the team has built the Nordic Cabin Collection which features an assortment of products from large iconic pieces to small charming figures, all of which have elements of cosiness and charm.

A giant standing plush moose, complete with knitted jumper, hat and scarf and telescopic legs that extend to achieve a maximum standing height of 170cm is perhaps the most striking figure in the collection.? He is accompanied by a selection of standing plush reindeer in assorted sizes.? Also in the collection is a large range of gift sacks and stockings decorated with plush Santas and snowmen, as well as home accessories including cushions, door stops and plush standing decorations. ?The whole range can be coordinated for high impact seasonal merchandising.

Reflecting the fashions for traditional seasonal decorations in North America, the Gingerbread House Collection of plush figures and accessories has a friendly, homespun appeal.? Many of the quirky figures feature telescopic extending legs to take them from compact to tall in seconds.

The collection includes a charming standing Gingerbread family with extending legs, as well as assorted sitting Gingerbread people with flexible posable limbs, and home accessories such as cushions, gift sacks and stockings, all with plush Gingerbread man detail.

The Classic Christmas Collection includes all the staples of a traditional Christmas d?cor range, featuring beautiful Santa figures in assorted designs and styles.? The main colours running through the collection are reds and greens, as you would expect from a Classic collection.? As well as standing figures, the range features home accessories in the form of poly resin candle lanterns in assorted Santa and snowman designs, all with a matt painted finish with glitter and gloss detail.

These three core collections will be on display on Stand B4, Hall B at Harrogate Christmas and Gift.? The team will also be showing their fully merchandised decorative and string lighting, trees and indoor/outdoor decorations.
