Austin-Based Four Hands Partners with Fuse Home
ABOUT FOUR HANDS
Based in Austin, Texas, Four Hands is a leading designer and global importer of trendsetting lifestyle home furnishings. They have earned a reputation for expertly blending styles, materials, and textures from diverse corners of the world to create distinct pieces for the home.
Austin-based Four Hands, a designer and global importer of trendsetting lifestyle home furnishings, announced a strategic partnership with Fuse Home to bolster the brand's ongoing commitment to and investment in original design, officials said on Tuesday.
Four Hands has worked closely with the Dutch-owned design company, known for sourcing innovative new materials, for the last five years while growing their upholstery business, officials explained. The partnership has been so symbiotic that Fuse Home will now design exclusively for Four Hands customers in North America.
With 20 years of design and manufacturing experience, Fuse Home founders Will Jonkheer and Kees Weijers have focused their careers on superior craftsmanship, working with a global base of customers in wholesale, retail, commercial, and hospitality industries, officials said.
Four Hands and Fuse Home have also established a new design and prototype workshop in the Philippines. With an in-house sample team, the shop will have the capacity to develop both upholstery and case good prototypes for Four Hands, which allows them autonomy to develop their own samples to ship anywhere in their global supply chain for manufacturing, thus speeding up the design process and cutting costs, according to a company press advisory.
The company has earned much recognition and accolades for their business acumen, including ranking in the Inc. 5000 list thirteen times. Founded in Austin in 1996, the business has grown to include offices in Vietnam, China, India, and the United States and showrooms in High Point, N.C., Las Vegas, Nevada, and Austin. Through their international presence, Four Hands has a finger on the pulse of how the world is shaping the way we decorate our dwellings.
