ONTARIO, Calif.—A.R.T. Furniture has started to receive broad patents for features of its Arch. Salvage collection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The 36-piece home collection is inspired by architectural features from old European structures and was created to address the vintage, restoration and authenticity movement that has become increasingly popular among its consumers, the company said.

“We pursued both copyright and patent protection of Arch. Salvage because of the level of detail, thought and design put into each piece of this collection,” said Adam Tilley, senior vice president of product and marketing, A.R.T. Furniture, which designs and manufactures casegoods, upholstery and outdoor furniture, as well as has more than 50 retail locations in China. “We are proud of the creativity of our design team and are thrilled the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is recognizing for patent protection on our unique designs.”

Jeff Cook, CEO of A.R.T. Furniture, added, “We will aggressively defend our designs to protect our dealers against knock-offs should unauthorized competition arise. We are also looking at worldwide patents to protect our designs from all directions. Our proprietary design reflects how well our design team listens to our customer needs and finds innovation solution to fit those needs.”

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
