Luxury furnishings retailer Restoration Hardware Inc. is accusing discount retailer Target Corp. of infringing four design patents covering outdoor furniture.
The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California Feb. 5, is over the Smith & Hawken brand’s Premium Edgewood line of wicker patio lounge furniture sold by Target.
The Premium Edgewood pieces are so similar to its Provence Collection that Target must have been aware of the Provence furniture before developing and marketing the accused items, Restoration Hardware said in its complaint.
In 2015, Restoration Hardware filed three lawsuits over Provence line design patents. The company voluntarily dismissed each of those complaints, according to a Bloomberg Law docket seach.
Target declined a Bloomberg Law request for comment.
Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP represented Restoration Hardware.
Restoration Hardware, Inc. v. Target Corp. , N.D. Cal., No. 18-770, complaint filed 2/5/18
