Starting next spring, Furniture Brands International (FBI) will have the international license to manufacture and distribute the Isaac Mizrahi Home label furniture.

Mizrahi has been a leader in the fashion industry for almost 30 years, and has dabbled in the home furnishings industry with a textiles line for S. Harris and a tabletop line at major retailers including Macy’s. And his latest furniture line will be available in 100 Thomasville stores and at better department stores.

“We are so excited about the collaboration between Isaac Mizrahi and Thomasville,” said Kathy Veltri, president of Thomasville Furniture. “Our design team is hard at work now designing a full line of products for introduction in spring 2014. We cannot wait to share the collection when it is complete."

Xcel Brands, which engages in the acquisition, design, licensing and marketing of consumer brands, acquired designer apparel brand Isaac Mizrahi New York in 2011, quickly expanding into 100+ categories for the Isaac Mizrahi brand.

FBI markets through a wide range of channels, including company owned Thomasville retail stores and through interior designers, multi-line/independent retailers and mass merchant stores. FBI brands include: Thomasville, Broyhill, Lane, Drexel Heritage, Henredon, Pearson, Hickory Chair, Lane Venture, Maitland-Smith and LaBarge.
