Developing a minimum of two furniture lines per year, the newest ONYX collection debuted at the 2011 Hospitality Design Exposition & Conference (HD Expo) in Las Vegas, where Lily Jack showcased 26 new items. The Eye-Catcher showcased at HD Boutique in Miami, was the company’s modern take on a French canopy chair, encased in Swarovski Crystal nailheads. “We are excited to be creating our next line, an organic hark back to the 1950s, which will debut at BDNY this November,” says Heather Gallagher, Lily Jack’s design director. Lily Jack is extremely proud of its project management team, having a deep knowledge of design, manufacturing, and customer service. It’s a team of eight dedicated professionals, which far exceeds the industry standard.

Company-wise, J&J/Templeton is in the process of implementing its new and comprehensive branding initiatives that will reflect “our company and brand’s approach to deliver innovative, creative, and high performing products that will capitalize on the well-established strengths of J+J Industires in areas of quality, service, and sustainability,” Hillis says, adding that the company was just awarded 100,000 yeards of custom carpet for the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. “This year has been about ‘re-tooling’ the Templeton Hospitality business since the acquisition in December. The Templeton resources, equipment, and people have been moved to our J&J Industries campus in Dalton, which will give us the best control of quality and service possible. “We think it is very important to support NEWH and are proud to be a corporate sponsor. We have had great success at the NEWH tradeshows and have found the NEWH golf outings to be very beneficial in networking with key hospitality customers. We hope to be an integral part of the future growth and success of NEWH by helping to expand with new chapters across the U.S.,” says Hillis.
