British handcrafted kitchen and furniture brand Chalon is seeking a buyer for the business.
Founded more than 40 years ago, by husband-and-wife team Michael and Rose Chalon, the company began producing furniture which emulated the elegance of 18th and 19th century English furniture.
Their styling was complemented by a unique paint effect developed to provide a distressed finish as if each piece had naturally aged.
Chalon’s clients have included royalty and famous chefs, bakers and sport stars including Aldo Zilli, Miranda Gore Brown, and Tim Henman.
Now the company is seeking to sell its Intellectual Property Rights, design libraries and customer database, as well as manufacturing facilities.
The company announced in October, it was seeking kitchen retailers to join an exclusive network offering its Signature Original Collection.
Creative director of Chalon Iana Saliuk said: “Following recent approaches from interested parties, we are eager to speak to those interested in acquiring the brand, our Intellectual Property Rights, design libraries, and customer database.
“We’re looking forward to the next chapter in Chalon’s history.
“It’s the right time to enhance the brand’s reach through an exclusive retailer distribution network and a focused online marketing strategy, providing unprecedented access to our brand and products.
“We are also open to discussions about our manufacturing facilities. We are keen that our small team of highly skilled people continue to produce their high-quality craftsmanship for any new owner, if required. The Chalon brand is synonymous with quality, aspiration and innovation.”
In preparation for the sale, Chalon has digitised its product catalogue to sell online, including the range of colours from Chalon’s paint palette.
