Michigan-based global furnishing giant Herman Miller has confirmed it has agreed a settlement with online furniture retailer Madison Seating, and its owner Levi Cohen, after a trademark dispute.
Last year Herman Miller filed legal action in Illinois against Madison Seating for unauthorised use of Herman Miller trademarks and improper marketing and sales of products.
According to American media Nick Butterfield, a public relations representative at Herman Miller, said back in August 2015 that Madison Seating sold used and pre-owned Herman Miller products without properly marketing them.
Almost a year down the line, Herman Miller has now revealed that the lawsuit has been settled, with terms remaining undisclosed.
In a statement, the company said: “Herman Miller today announced the company’s case against Levi Cohen and Madison Seating has been settled, and all outstanding issues have been resolved.”
Herman Miller is a globally recognised provider of furniture and sees its UK head office situated in London. The company also opened a new 170,000sq ft manufacturing facility in Melksham, Wiltshire, at the back end of last year as it continues to expand its global footprint.
