DKB Household UK has signed an agreement to be the sole distributor of French housewares brand Les Artistes’ range of cups in the UK.
The collection of espresso, coffee and tea cups are described by DKB as ‘the perfect embodiment of innovation, flair, colour and functionality’. Available in an array of colours, from bright pinks to more tonal shades of grey, each porcelain cup features a bold, textured, non-slip silicone cover to protect hands from the heat. The cups come in three sizes, from the 100ml espresso and 180ml coffee to the 300ml tall cup.
DKB Household managing director Nick Cornwell said: “Les Artistes selected us as their exclusive UK distributor due to our extensive knowledge of the housewares market and broad customer base. We are very much looking forward to bringing such an exciting and vivacious brand to the UK market, at a time when these products have never been so popular.”
DKB will support Les Artistes with in-store fixtures and point of sale material, ready for launch in January. The Les Artistes products will feature on DKB’s stand at Spring Fair International 2015.
DKB Household’s portfolio of brands includes Cole & Mason, Jamie Oliver, Ken Hom, Zyliss and Culinare. The company has an international presence in over 40 markets, where products are distributed via a network of agents and distributors. Customers include major department stores, variety stores, grocery multiples and independent specialist retailers.
