Ombré Process Awarded a Utility Patent

Los Angeles, California – September 2013   J. Robert Scott, Inc. is pleased to announce that Sally Sirkin Lewis, the company’s Founder and President has been granted a U.S. Utility Patent for her Ombré furniture finishing technique. Over the course of her career, Ms. Lewis’ exceptional designs have earned more than 150 design patents, the first one awarded in February 1986.  This is her first utility patent.

For more than four decades, J. Robert Scott, Inc., the internationally known American luxury furniture and textile manufacturer, continues to be a respected source in the design community for bespoke hand-made furnishings. The Ombré finish process was introduced in 2010 after years in development, “I am intrigued by 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 and exhibit subtle gradients in intensity and shade from light to dark, producing a distinctive, individual effect on each veneer.

In French, the word ombré means shadow or shade.  The term, ombré is commonly used in the field of textiles to refer to a color effect that is generally produced by arranging different tones of threads or fibers in the warp of a woven fabric. The innovative concept had never been attempted as a decorative furniture finish prior to Ms. Lewis’ inventive achievement. 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, and corporate interiors.  Presently, the Ombré finishes represent 10% of the overall finish options offered by the company.

The nature of the hand-applied, progressive coloration to the wood surface creates one-of-a-kind results. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office three years of examination has validated the proprietary technique and granted the Patent (U.S. Patent No. 8,529,984) on September 10, 2013 and will remain in force for 20 years.
