Creative Woodwork International (CWI) Introduces Two New Tofino Chairs at the Casual Furniture & Accessories Market in Chicago

CWI's New Folding Chair & Folding Armchair Incorporate the Popular Tofino Design

MINNEAPOLIS -– October 6, 2004 -– When casual furniture retailers report that a specific design is a hot seller, what should a wholesaler do? Listen. That’s what Creative Woodwork International did when retailers told the wholesale importer that consumers love the Tofino Armchair, Benches and Tables (popular items in CWI’s Veranda Collection of eco-friendly outdoor wood furniture). In September at the Casual Furniture & Accessories Market in Chicago, CWI introduced two new items, the Tofino Folding Chair and Folding Armchair, which feature the attractive Tofino design.

“The Tofino design is an open checkerboard pattern, suggesting the style of a hatch cover in a classic wood sailboat,” says Bernadette Carroll, president, CWI. “In response to our retailers, we incorporated the Tofino pattern into folding chairs, which are also very popular. Buyers at the Casual Market told us that this appealing combination will make the new chairs top sellers in 2005.”

The Tofino Folding Chair and Folding Armchair (H34.3 x D22.5 x W20.9) are crafted in earth-friendly eucalyptus with brass metal components. The new items complement the Tofino Armchair, Benches and Tables in the Veranda Collection of CWI’s Lifewood furniture.
