FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


J. ROBERT SCOTT AWARDED INTERNATIONAL OMBRÉ PATENT

Los Angeles, California – June 2017   J. Robert Scott, Inc. is pleased to announce that Sally Sirkin Lewis, the company’s Founder and President has added an International Process Patent for her Ombré furniture finishing technique.

For almost 45 years, J. Robert Scott, Inc., the internationally known American luxury furniture and textile manufacturer, has earned the reputation as a respected source in the design community for hand-made furnishings. The Ombré finish process was introduced in 2010 after years in development, “The idea started with my interest in the transparent effect of watercolors, and I wanted to translate the concept of a seamless color transition to wood veneer,” explains Ms. Lewis.

The resulting finishes accentuate the inherent characteristics of the wood. With the Ombré process subtle gradients in the wood are visible in intensity and shade, from light to dark, producing a distinctive, individual effect on each veneer. The innovative concept had never been attempted as a decorative furniture finish prior to Ms. Lewis’ inventive achievement.

On September 10, 2013, The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted the Utility Patent (U.S. Patent No. 8,529,984). Most recently, the International Process Patent Registration (No. 2412449) has been validated in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Italy and Turkey.

The Ombré finish is not limited by “design,” rather the finish can be applied to a range of furnishings and in various settings, including paneling in private aircraft, yachts, corporate and residential interiors.
