Sarah Richardson Joins Palliser for Designer Collection
Canadian upholstery producer Palliser has partnered with award-winning designer and television personality Sarah Richardson to create an exclusive collection of home furnishings.
Launching at High Point Market in April 2019 with consumer availability in Fall 2019, the collaboration embodies an accessible yet elegant approach to design that combines Richardson’s signature aesthetic with the quality and craftsmanship of Palliser.
Sarah Richardson for Palliser is comprised of four themed collections – each includes dining bedroom and occasional pieces alongside made-to-order upholstery, in a wide selection of fabrics and leathers personally curated by Richardson.
A true turn-key solution, each collection is designed to fit together seamlessly and includes a broad range of decorative rugs, throws and accent pillows that unite to create Richardson’s signature style in any room.
The full line includes these collections:
· Annex, a collection designed for today’s modern family, showcases natural wood tones with punches of ash burl, kelly green, and vintage-inspired details.
· Boulevard gives a nod to art-deco with rich walnut and indigo accents that will resonate with the urban-dweller.
· Shore is light, bright, and full of feminine elegance, its handwoven rattan, linen- cast resin and brass details evoke coastal living.
· For city living, Vista takes a bold approach to luxury with crisp geometric veneer patterning, contemporary hardware, a palette of fog and oyster wood finishes and deep splashes of red and tangerine.
“Palliser will celebrate its 75th anniversary this year and launching Sarah Richardson for Palliser feels like a great way to mark this milestone” said Peter Tielmann, Palliser president and CEO. “Sarah shares our passion for details and quality and working with her was a true partnership. For over a year she collaborated closely with our team leading the design concepts, selecting the materials and textiles and spending time at our manufacturing facilities here in Canada and in Indonesia. We brought her vision to life leveraging our broad range of manufacturing expertise and the high-quality craftsmanship that we’re known for.”
The new collection is the company’s first partnership with an outside designer and signifies a new chapter for the 75-year-old Winnipeg-based manufacturer. The line showcases Palliser’s diverse capabilities and presents a fresh take on the company’s core strengths, such as motion furniture, leather and solid wood case pieces. As one of Canada’s largest furniture manufacturers, Palliser will continue to design and produce case goods and made-to-order upholstered pieces for its current retail customers.
"I want everyone to live in style and love their home,” said Richardson. “We’ve made it fun and easy to bring designer style to your home at an affordable price point. Partnering with Palliser has allowed me to share my creative vision and signature style in a way that celebrates quality, design and value.”
The Sarah Richardson for Palliser collection will be available in September 2019 at select retailers across North America with retail partners being announced late August on sarahrichardson.palliser.com. Richardson will attend High Point Market to launch the collection from April 4 to 8, 2019. Interviews available upon request
