The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has partnered with furniture company, Eichholtz, to launch The Met x Eichholtz collection, featuring furniture, home décor and lighting that draw inspiration from more than 5,000 years of history and culture from around the globe.
The collection features furniture and lighting that recall the architecture of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the New York skyline, along with sculpture reproductions, rugs, wall art and home accessories that take creative cues from some of the 1.5 million works of art in The Met collection. Each product has been designed to coordinate with other designs offered by Eichholtz. The 90-piece co-branded collection celebrating significant works of art is available for purchase internationally through Eichholtz retail and online stores, interior designer showrooms, department stores and specialty furniture retailers.
“A shared commitment to design and creativity unite The Met and Eichholtz for this new collaboration, which brings 5,000 years of art home,” says Josh Romm, head, global licensing and partnerships, The Metropolitan Museum of Art. “We are proud to engage with a globally recognized brand such as Eichholtz to introduce beautiful, quality furniture and home accessories that showcase centuries of design inspiration.”
The collection debuted in New York City Oct. 11, followed by a further presentation at the Eichholtz showroom at High Point in North Carolina, Oct. 14-18.
“Creating The Met x Eichholtz collection has been an exceptional experience for me and my team,” says Edwin van der Gun, global creative director, Eichholtz. “A year of being allowed to roam through the museum when it was closed to the public and explore the archives has led us to design a collection that we are incredibly proud of. Our close engagement with the artifacts and artworks felt like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The result is a very special collection of handcrafted pieces we know work beautifully with the Eichholtz collections and will suit a wide variety of luxury interiors.”
