Oxford's licensing agent for the U.K. and Europe, Performance Brands, brokered the deal.
Oxford has partnered with the U.K.-based Smith & Fellows, which specializes in wall coverings inspired by archival and historic designs. The five-year, multi-territory deal will see collections of Oxford patterns, sourced from a number of University archives and libraries, available across a number of territories including the U.A.E. and China.
This fall will see new product introductions to Oxford’s furniture range by Timothy Oulton including a test tube chandelier, a butterfly specimen table inspired by the entomological displays in the University’s Museum of Natural History and a modern chair in brushed steel and colorful leather. Table lamps and floor lamps, available in boating stripe or tartan, will also feature in the new Oxford catalog.
