Kate Spade Expands Home Categories, To Launch Housewares Line

Kate Spade has announced the expansion of its home category and will expand its license with Lenox Corporation, introducing a housewares collection called All in Good Taste.

The company announced that it would be adding both cookware, bakeware and food prep items through its license with Lenox Corporation. The brand already offers a tabletop line with Lenox. The new offerings in the All in Good Taste collection will be available in August 2015.

In addition, new licensed home collections will include bedding, bath, furniture, fabric, wallpaper and rugs. New licensing agreements include DWI Holdings, which will manufacture and distribute bedding and bath; EJ Victor, for furniture; Kravet, for fabric and wallpaper; and Jaipur, for rugs.

“We are intently focused on our two key axes of growth— product category expansion and geographic expansion— and reaching customers across our four category pillars, women’s, men’s, children’s and home,” said Craig Leavitt, CEO of Kate Spade. “This robust expansion of home decor offerings under the kate spade new york brand is an important step towards our vision of becoming a powerful, global, multichannel lifestyle brand.”

The collections will debut between May 2015 and spring 2016.
