Kate Spade & Company announced that it would be expanding its home category offerings through four new licensing agreements under the Kate Spade New York brand. Collections will debut between May 2015 and spring 2016, and will be carried by a range of retailers, interior design showrooms and online.
"We are intently focused on our two key axes of growth—product category expansion and geographic expansion—and reaching customers across our four category pillars: women's, men's, children's and home,” said Craig A. Leavitt, CEO of Kate Spade & Company. “This robust expansion of home decor offerings under the Kate Spade New York brand is an important step toward our vision of becoming a powerful, global, multichannel lifestyle brand."
New collaborations include the manufacture and distribution of bedding and bath products by DWI Holdings, furniture by EJ Victor, fabric and wallpaper by Kravet and rugs by Jaipur.

The new collections will complement existing collections, such as the table linens and kitchen textiles made with Town & Country Living and the stationary and gifting collection made with Lifeguard Press. Kate Spade & Company is also expanding its license with Lenox to include a Kate Spade New York housewares collection featuring food prep items, cookware and bakeware, named All in Good Taste and available in August 2015.
