She will be based in the Kravet office in High Point, North Carolina, and reports to David Lappert, vice president of sales.

In her new position, she will call on furniture manufacturers with the complete Kravet fabric line. Simone previously worked for Kravet from 1997-2006.

“They are the top of the line and again my home,” Simone says. “I have always stayed in touch and always considered them family. It is amazing to be able to sell to all my fellow merchandisers.

“I have the best of both worlds now more than ever…working for an amazing company, selling to whom I consider customers and friends, and being able to play and sell with the most amazing selection of fabrics; I could not ask for more.”

Simone has had extensive experience in sourcing, purchasing, and merchandising upholstery and decorative fabrics in the furniture industry for the past 14 years.

Prior to her new Kravet post, she was a merchandising executive with Radiate Textiles, a fabric converter in Norwalk, Connecticut.

Before that position, she was the brand director for the Drexel and Henredon divisions of Heritage Home Group. She left Heritage in December 2018, after nearly ten years with the company, which filed for bankruptcy in 2019.
