BOONE, N.C.- Charleston Forge announced this week it will unveil a new licensed collection with designer Lauren Clement, principal of Charlotte, N.C.-based Lauren NIcole Designs, at the April 2021 High Point Market.
The collection will include occasional tables, consoles and accent pieces that are suitable for both residential and hospitality use. The collection aims to utilize Charleston Forge’s capabilities in wood, metal, glass and other mixed media for a line that combines Clement’s love of natural materials with the equestrian lifestyle.
“The partnership with Charleston Forge has proved to be a natural ﬁt as I ﬁnd myself quickly becoming an advocate for their brand,” said Clement, who began working with the company around the fall of last year to develop a line that executed her vision. “I run a small business with the help of my mother, and it is important for me to know the friendly faces behind a brand.
“I’ve enjoyed frequent trips to the factory in Boone where I even tested my hand in forging metal,” she continued. “I am truly honored to be working closely with the Charleston Forge team on this collection and am looking forward to seeing the brand continue to break into the kitchen and bath industry with new product introductions.”
Produced in the company’s North Carolina plant, the Lauren Nicole Designs for Charleston Forge line will debut in April 2021 at the Charleston Forge showroom in High Point.
“We knew immediately that Lauren was someone that we would like to work with in some capacity,” said Dan Minor, president of Charleston Forge of first meeting Clement in October 2019. “Since that time, we have done a seminar in Charlotte, a podcast at market, and a recorded walkthrough at market to show off our new product offering. This relationship led naturally into product development leveraging Lauren’s design capabilities and name recognition. Lauren brings a fresh new design perspective that we are thrilled to help create.”
