Furniture Today Staff -- Casual Living, October 20, 2013
CONOVER, N.C. - Outdoor furniture manufacturer Lane Venture will launch a licensed collection from Celerie Kemble at the April 2014 High Point Market, the company announced.
The collection will debut with more than 50 items designed by Kemble utilizing a variety of outdoor materials and techniques. This launch follows last spring's introductions at sister companies Henredon and Maitland-Smith.
Development is underway, and Kemble is finalizing the last group of designs with Lane Venture Vice-President of Design and Development Zac Bryant. Patti Frye, the company's fabric manager, is also working with Kemble and key resources to create the fabric line specifically designed for the new collection.
"We're excited to be working with Celerie to develop her unique style for outdoor," said Lane Venture President Gary McCray. "With this collection we're committed to supporting a depth of SKUs that will allow the designer or salesperson to specify for their client exactly what's needed to create the perfect outdoor environment."
"I can't wait to show the collection we have been working on," Kemble said. "It marries the comfort and sophisticated design sensibility I expect of interior furniture with the technical and practical functions needed for outdoor."
Kemble is a principal of Kemble Interiors, based in Palm Beach and New York. Her books include "To Your Taste: Creating Modern Rooms with a Traditional Twist" and "Black and White (and a Bit in Between): Timeless Interiors, Dramatic Accents, and Stylish Collections."
