Fremont, Calif. - JLA Home has completed a 100% stock purchase of Artboxx, Inc., a supplier of commercial framed art.
The acquisition includes Artboxx's two divisions, Intercontinental Art, a supplier of finished wall décor, and Art In Motion, a fine art publisher and art licensor selling in more than 70 countries around the globe.
The Artboxx business will operate as a wholly owned division of JLA Home, the company announced in a press release.
"With strong home furnishings global branding coordinated across multiple divisions, framed art is a natural expansion of the JLA business model," said Edmund Jin, ceo, JLA Home.
