The Denali Home Collection is a division of Monterey Mills. The collection was launched in 1998 in exclusive boutiques and furniture stores. Our throws are recognized as distinctive gift items due to their plush feel and large size. Denali offers Rustic, Western, Home Decor, Natical lines and is now introducing an Americana line. Winning designers could see their throws become part of this new and exclusive collection.
The Design Concept:
Students create "Americana" themed print designs for a Home Furnishing line of throws. The top designers win large cash prizes (listed below) and the winning print designs will be featured in future DENALI HOME COLLECTIONS.
