Brunschwig & Fils filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this last January, claiming the poor economic conditions as the cause for the bankruptcy. Brunschwig & Fils made the official announcement that Kravet Inc. was the winner of the Brunschwig & Fils auction after a standoff against Sovereign Partners. Brunschwig & Fils is expected to be in full operation of the Brunschwig & Fils business by the end of March 2011. If you are considering filing for Chapter 7, Chapter 13 or, Chapter 11 bankruptcy, contact a skilled and knowledgeable Long Island bankruptcy attorney for further assistance.

For over 100 years, Brunschwig & Fils, a prestigious home décor company, supplying a variety of high quality fabrics, wall coverings, furniture, lighting and accessories has been operated by the Peardon family. Headquartered in White Plaines, NY, the company has 21 showrooms across the globe. Brunschwig & Fils was not only a household name amongst elite interior designers; the world renowned manufacturer had drawn global attention from both local and international bidders.

During the Chapter 11 bankruptcy period, Kravet stepped in and provided Brunschwig & Fils with $4 million dollars in financing, in order to ensure that the bankrupt company would be sound trading partners during the transition. Kravet’s funds held an important function, making sure that the transfer of ownership went as smoothly as possible.
