Global Views Acquires the Arete Collection
October 4, 2017,
DALLAS, Sept. 27, 2017 – Global Views’ David Gebhart and Frederick Rayner announced the acquisition of the Arete Collection. Originally founded by Bradley Clifford and George Sellers, the Arete Collection is known for magnificently carved and hand-crafted home furnishings.
Studio A Home – A Global Views Company, will unveil several pieces from Arete’s Modernist collection, reflecting a modern mood for design including an urn, bowl and vase. A stylish series of travertine boxes with hand-applied maritime bronze cast motifs will also be featured.
Existing customers of Arete Collection may continue to request product information via the Arete website during the transition period as designs move to the Global Views and Studio A Home websites and showrooms for future purchasing. George Sellers and his apprentice Ely Sellers have joined the Global Views team to facilitate this process and are excited for the opportunity to influence the design aesthetic of their new adopted home.
“The design team and I are thrilled about this collaboration with George and Ely of Arete Collection,” said David Gebhart, CEO of Global Views and Studio A Home. “We are working on several new collections and releases that promise to be amazing and highlight their extraordinary talent.”
Clifford’s next endeavor will be offering private label consulting in the home decor manufacturing sector as well as representing a variety of international artists. The Global Views team is confident his next venture will be as successful as his work at Areté Collection, which reflects his 26 year commitment to providing the highest quality design work in the marketplace.
