Timothy De Clue Collection
Estimated 2019 total sales: $1 million-$2.9 million
Home accent, bedding and furniture specialist, founded in 2011. The overall concept is a 3,600-square-foot “mini” home décor department store. Key suppliers include Alder & Tweed for accent furniture; Go Home and Mercana for decorative accessories; Flow Décor and Sagebrook Home for lamps/lighting; Paragon and Mercana for wall décor; Timothy De Clue Collection and Ann Gish for soft goods. Attends Las Vegas Market and international shows. Visual merchandising scheme is nature-inspired and grouped by theme. Carries a proprietary line of luxury linens made in Italy, currently working on wholesale line of bedding. Best retail idea has been creating exclusive product lines that fit cohesively with merchandise lines from other vendors. Mixing the two creates excitement and lends heft to displays, which drives multi-product purchases and makes the showroom a distinct destination.
