Laura Ashley, Isaac Jacobs Sign Frame Deal

FORT MILL, S.C.-Laura Ashley has signed a license agreement with Isaac Jacobs International to manufacture and distribute a collection of traditional and contemporary picture frames.

"We believe that consumers deserve to have products they will be proud to display in their home and office," said Isaac Jacobs Partner Ike Douek. "We are confident our interpretations of the classic Laura Ashley style will fit seamlessly with the look and quality of this successful and globally loved brand."

The debut collection will include free-standing and wall mounted frames of acrylic, wood, resin, glass, metal and plastic. "Picture frames are a natural extension of our home furnishings products and will complement the brand beautifully," said Laura Ashley President Penne Cairoli.

The collection is expected to debut in department and specialty stores in January 2013.
