Hunter Douglas boosts hospitality division moving into 2010

With offices in Chicago and Las Vegas, Hunter Douglas Hospitality’s offerings have increased as its recent merger with Coast Drapery Service enables turnkey fabric service for hotels and resorts.

Hunter Douglas Hospitality offers a complete line of roller shades, Silhouette® and Vignette® shadings, shutters, and other window coverings; drapery and upholstery fabrics; and fabrication of drapery and bedding managed by its Coast Drapery team in Las Vegas.

“We’re seeing good results from designers and hospitality properties working with us on guest rooms and public spaces, providing custom solutions and fast, reliable service for their projects,” said Jennifer Lamonte, president of Hunter Douglas Hospitality.

Based in Las Vegas, Lamonte worked to make Coast Drapery a leader in hospitality fabrication for more than a decade. Now she is developing a team that provides end-to-end specification and fabrication. As part of this development, Hunter Douglas Hospitality will move its design studio to a new location in Chicago. The move is anticipated to occur in the first quarter of 2010. Sarah Warren will manage the office in a new role as Director of Operations in Chicago.

Finally, Hunter Douglas Hospitality welcomes some additions to its sales force, including the Jeff Fuge Group for Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia; Bridget Hankins and Associates for Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming; Larry and Zac Harpin for Nevada; and Doug Sneed for Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
