Furniture design legal case sees infringed products withdrawn

Furniture designer and distributor Core Products has seen a design infringement challenge result in the withdrawal of contested products.

A statement regarding a recent legal case brought by furniture designer Core Products Limited, represented by Tony Catterall (pictured), senior partner and head of intellectual property at Taylors Solicitors, said: “On 12 January 2024, Core Products Limited commenced proceedings against each of FW Style Limited, IQ GB (UK) Limited, Furnished With Style Limited and their directors alleging, among other things, that the Defendants’ Enkel Furniture range infringed Core Products Limited’s original design rights in four items of its successful Augusta product range. 

“The proceedings were initially defended, the Defendants alleging independent origination of the Enkel range, but were ultimately compromised on terms that remain confidential between the parties save that the Enkel range of products has been withdrawn from sale.”
