Global ViewsDALLAS-Global Views has partnered with high-end bedding company Ann Gish to develop a furniture line, with targeted launches in Oct. 2016 and Jan. 2017.

Ann Gish has designed luxury bedding for the past 25 years, and her furniture line for Global Views will include floor screens and bedroom and living room pieces.

“We are thrilled to be working with Ann,” said David Gebhart, CEO of Global Views. “It is always a pleasure to work with talented people who can create products that complement and enhance what we are known for.”

This collaboration began with a visit to Gish’s retail store in the Flatiron district of Manhattan. “We were so impressed with the water color sketches that Ann had been working on,” said Frederick Rayner, COO, Global Views. “We knew instantly that Ann was the right fit for the Global Views package.”

“I have always loved the furniture and accessories of the Global Views companies but knew I could really add to their collection,” Gish added. “I had been buying their product for my store and knew that some of my ideas would work in their line if given the opportunity.”

Along with Gish, Global Views also has licensed lines with Julia Buckingham, Williamsburg, DwellStudio, Michael CF Chan, Barbara Barry and Roger Thomas for Studio A Home.

    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.
