The iconic fashion brand extends into furniture market to offer chic and effortless style at home
NEW YORK, June 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — WHP Global (“WHP”) announced today that it has entered into a long-term licensing agreement with Nova Design Inc. to develop and distribute a home furniture line for the Anne Klein brand. The Anne Klein Furniture Collection is slated to debut in Winter 2022 and will be carried in select stores and e-commerce retailers throughout the United States.
The Anne Klein Furniture collection will be distinguished by a combination of Parisian Chic, Scandinavian, and Mid-century styles in furniture with a special emphasis on touch, color, and texture of fabric to stand out in the market. Anne Klein’s love of her homes – one on the storied Sutton Place in Manhattan, the other in a quaint beachside village in the Hamptons, will serve as inspiration for the collection which will feature pieces for the dining room, living room, bedroom, home office, and outdoor.
“We have experienced success in the home category for Anne Klein with our bedding and bath products and look forward to partnering with Nova Design to offer customers a new way to incorporate the classic style of our iconic brand into their homes,” said Stanley Silverstein, Chief Commercial Officer at WHP Global.
Details in the Anne Klein furniture designs will reflect the brand’s fresh take on modern sportswear and incorporate environment friendly natural solid wood and materials, to produce a sophisticated, well-priced collection to help consumers live their lives with ease, comfort, and effortless style.
“We are more than excited to see the outcomes of combining the rich experience of Nova Design in the furniture industry and the power of Anne Klein in the fashion industry,” said Orhan Ilhan, President of Nova Design Inc. “This partnership will offer elegant and stylish trends in furniture to the American consumers. We believe that Anne Klein Furniture will have a distinguished place among the respected furniture brands in the near future.”
Anne Klein is an iconic legacy women’s fashion brand founded in 1968, serving women around the world with classic American style. The brand’s namesake, Anne Klein herself, formed the brand to create elegant sportswear for women and revolutionize the way that women think about and buy clothing.
