Product designer, author and style influencer, Shayla Copas and home décor manufacturer Chelsea House have announced a collaboration and licensing agreement for 2020. The inaugural Shayla Copas for Chelsea House Collection will include accent furniture, accessories, mirrors and lighting based on Copas’ signature design style. Products from the new collection will debut at April’s High Point Market in 2020, and the full complement of designs will be on display in the Chelsea House showroom at 200 Hamilton Street.
“I am thrilled that Chelsea House has been able to partner with the multi-talented Shayla Copas,” said Bill Cain, president, Chelsea House. “As I have gotten to know her as an author, designer, decorator, social media influencer, she has become a friend. I love her heart and her inspiration. I look forward to a wonderful long-term relationship with her. The designs she is bringing to the table are beautiful, fun, eclectic and will grace any home. Her use of color and texture completes her look.”
The Shayla Copas for Chelsea House Collection is described as being “all about grace, beauty, sophistication and hospitality.” Copas will build upon her global success in the design field to further expand her brand through this collaboration. With decades of luxurious interiors, creative tablescapes and original product design, Copas was a proven choice to complement Chelsea House’s portfolio of classic design with a vibrant, fresh attitude, the company said.
“We had been talking with various manufacturers about potential collaborations but we were on the fence as to which direction to proceed,” said Copas. “When Chelsea House approached me, I knew from the moment that we met that they were a perfect fit. Chelsea House has the sophistication that my brand embodies and I am truly honored and excited to be working with them on a fresh collection for the spring of 2020."
“Shayla used some Chelsea House pieces in a project she was doing at market,” continues Cain. “Once we saw the finished project, we realized it was the epitome of what we see Chelsea House as. The discussion to do a collection grew from that.”
The debut of the Shayla Copas for Chelsea House Collection will follow a design theme created by Copas that is carried across multiple original lighting and furniture items. Also included in the collection are ceramic, glass and metal decorative pieces that continue in the sophisticated yet whimsical theme.
