Kate Spade ready to run with home licensees

New York — Women's accessories designer Kate Spade has completed three licensing agreements to kick off her brand's previously announced expansion into home.

Springs Industries will provide bed and bath for the lower-case kate spade at home. Lenox will provide tableware in fine, transitional and causal collections. Products from both licensees will debut at retail in 2004 and will be distributed in the same upscale channel that carry kate spade accessories and handbags.

Scalamandre will manufacture and distribute a collection of printed woven fabrics, trimmings and wallpaper that will be available to the design trade only through Scalamandre showrooms.

"I have always loved accents, whether a bag, a vase, a journal or a pillow," Spade said in a prepared statement. "The home collection will enable us to express a lifestyle in a truly complete way."
