Furniture manufacturer E.J. Victor has announced a licensing partnership with interior and lifestyle designer Kelly Wearstler. The collection, which includes seating, tables, case pieces, beds and fine upholstery, will debut in April 2015 during High Point Market.

“As a long-time admirer of the brand, I am thrilled to have partnered with E.J. Victor,” Wearstler said. “E.J. Victor is world-renowned for its commitment to superior craftsmanship.”

Wearstler is known for decorative home accessories, lighting and  fine furniture, that have long been pursued by connoisseurs of distinctive home products. For this collection she will again rely on her “signature materials,” including warm bronze, cerused woods, gunmetals, semi-precious stones and parchment.

“Each piece in this new collection draws upon my distinct design vocabulary to evoke a voice that is boldly unique and soulful,” added Wearstler. “This collaboration aims to be modern yet timeless in the tradition of my signature ‘raw and refined’ aesthetic.”

“Kelly and her team are quite ingenious in executing her designs,” said E.J. Victor president and CEO John V. Jokinen. “She has a great following within the design community. I am positive that her new creations will generate some real excitement next spring at High Point.”

Most recently, Wearstler teamed up with Visual Comfort for a line of lighting. She also has collections with the Rug Company, Swarovski, Pickard Fine China, and Paperless Post, among others.
