Lord Wedgwood to appear at Bering’s Hardware for two days to help raise awareness for Houston’s 13th Annual Rise School – Gifts From the Heart Benefitting The Rise School of Houston, as well as to promote the North American launch of his Wedgwood and Bentley Collection.
Bering’s Hardware has been selected by WWRD Holdings as one of five retail stores to unveil the Wedgwood and Bentley Collection for its North American debut. This exclusive new collection pays homage to a new generation of luxury consumers, building on Wedgwood’s 250 years of design and craftsmanship heritage. The collection combines timeless iconic pieces mixed with newly-designed contemporary classics to blend tastefully into any fine home throughout the world, adapting it to the essence of the modern luxury interior.
Wedgwood & Bentley harkens back to the highly successful partnership started in 1762 between Wedgwood’s founder, Josiah Wedgwood, and Thomas Bentley, a well educated and well connected businessman, who became the Wedgwood brand ambassador to royalty and aristocracy all around the world. The two fast became friends, going on to form one of the most successful and brilliant creative partnerships of the age and creating together the first true global luxury brand – WEDGWOOD.
“Being selected as one of a handful of retailers to launch Wedgwood’s new Wedgwood and Bentley line in North America is truly an honor,” said Augie Bering V, Bering’s President. “Bering’s Hardware has worked hard to provide our customers with the highest of customer service as well as the highest quality of merchandise. We respect the Wedgwood legacy and family lineage and are excited to be selected, once again, to host Lord Wedgwood for two days of signing and appearances. What’s even more important is being able to share in promoting The Rise School of Houston. We believe it says a lot about Lord Wedgwood and WWRD Holdings to include the launch at both the charity event, as well as the in-store signing.”
Every year Bering’s hosts Houston’s Rise School for an event to help raise funds for children with Down syndrome. While we are just as excited about this year’s event, it is even more exciting because Lord Wedgwood will be joining us to help raise additional awareness. Lord Wedgwood happens to have a child with Down syndrome so it is a cause that is dear to him and his family.
The two days will commence with The Rise School of Houston’s Gifts from the Heart 13th annual shopping extravaganza, taking place at Bering’s Hardware, 3900 Bissonnet, on Thursday, November 15th from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. For those unable to attend the Rise Event Thursday evening, Lord Wedgwood will be signing pieces as well as visiting with customers at Bering’s on Bissonnet, Friday, November 16th from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. www.Berings.com
