Chalon, one of Britain’s leading handcrafted kitchen and furniture brands, has announced that it is seeking a buyer.
Founded more than 40 years ago, the Chalon brand’s clients have included royalty and famous chefs, bakers and sport stars including Aldo Zilli, Miranda Gore Brown, and Tim Henman.
Chalon’s creative director 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 focussed 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 unique paint palette.
Founded in 1978 by husband-and-wife team, Michael and Rose Chalon, the company began producing furniture designed to emulate the classic elegance of 18th- and 19th-century English furniture. Their bold and open styling was complemented by a specialised paint effect developed to provide a distressed finish as if each piece had naturally aged in an English country house.
