AUSTIN, Texas–Home furnishings company Four Hands made its third brand expansion in the past 12 months, with the purchase of Architects and Heroes, a lighting company known for its counter-balanced pulley lights.
Architects and Heroes, based here, has shown its brand in the Four Hands’ High Point, AmericasMart Atlanta and Las Vegas’ World Market Center showrooms for the last few years. Its founder, Palmer Earley, will join Four Hands to develop and expand the company’s lighting category.
“Palmer and his company are a perfect fit for Four Hands,” said Matthew Briggs, president and chief executive officer, Four Hands. “His product, design aesthetic and customer base blend well with the Four Hands business model and growth plan. We have been looking for an opportunity to expand our lighting collections, and Palmer will take us to the next level by developing a wide selection of fixed and portable lighting.”
