NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Macy’s (NYSE:M) today announced the launch of exclusive bedding line Bar III.

Bar III is the latest in our cache of exclusive, private brands,” said Laurene Gandolfo, executive vice president of Macy’s Home Private Brands. “This trend-right label was embraced by Macy’s ‘Impulse’ fashion customers when the line launched earlier this year, and now we hope it will resonate with our Home department shoppers through our Bar III bedding collection.”

Anchored in a neutral color palette of black, graphite, taupe and deep blue, Bar III is distinguished by unexpected decorative details and modern styling. Available in twin, twin extra-long, full, queen, king and California king, the collection is composed of five beds – Pinball, Garment Wash, Puffer, Textured Stripe and Vintage Scroll. The number and variety of coordinating pieces allow the customer to easily customize their bed to their taste. Textured decorative pillows and sheet sets in heathered neutrals and bold ikat prints complement the entire assortment.

“The Bar III bedding collection represents modern simplicity at its finest,” said Stephen Cardino, vice president and fashion director of Macy’s Home Store. “The combination of relaxed, easy-care fabrications and patterns designed to be intermixed results in a contemporary bedding line characterized by a sense of individualism and casual sophistication.”
