Cubberley to Run Nathan Furniture's North American Launch
Industry veteran Bill Cubberley will lead English furniture manufacturer Nathan Furniture Ltd.'s North American launch.
Nathan Furniture USA will debut at next month's High Point Furniture Market at 220 Elm, space 330.
Nathan Furniture, of Yorkshire, England, has been building handcrafted high quality cabinetry in England since 1916. Today the company specializes in classic transitional contemporary furniture with design elements from retro influences.
Cubberley believes the line is the perfect fit for today’s consumer.
“Their styling is clean, retro, and light scaled contemporary, the craftsmanship is excellent and their work in teak is truly unique," he said. "I feel it is the perfect time to bring this company’s products to the North American market. Pricing is extremely competitive and we will be able to offer to our retailer’s a quick ship program out of our U.S. warehouse as well as container programs.”
“The US market is growing and home sales are up. We think U.S. consumers are ready for Nathan’s fresh look with its transitional retro design,” said Nathan Furniture Chairman Nicholas Radford . “I felt it was timely to enter the North American market as I was able to partner with Bill Cubberley to establish this launch and oversee our U.S. operation. Bill has over 40 years’ experience in our industry, most notably as Sr. VP Sales and Marketing for Stanley Furniture. He has worked as a consultant in the industry, most recently with the Orient Express division of Star International Furniture and I personally have known Bill for over 20 years.”
