Trademark Class 20: Furniture

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 20 is opted to register a trademark for furniture, mirrors, or picture frames.

The NICE Classification was established in 1957 by NICE Agreement, and it divides marks into 45 different classes by Goods and Services (Classes 1-34 for Goods and Classes 35-45 for Services). The purpose of these classifications is to allow users to seek trademark goods or services into classes most appropriate to their business.

 

TM Class 20 includes mainly furniture, mirrors, picture frames; goods (not included in other classes) of wood, cork, reed, cane, wicker, horn, bone, ivory, whalebone, shell, amber, mother-of-pearl, meerschaum and substitutes for all these materials, or of plastics.

 

Why Should We Opt For TM Class 20?

You would choose Trademark Class 20 if you were registering any of these types of goods:

  • Bedding (for example, mattresses, spring mattresses, pillows)
  • Looking glasses and furnishing or toilet mirrors
  • Registration number plates not of metal
  • Letterboxes not of metal or masonry

You would not use Trademark Class 20 if you were registering for:

Related Classes

A related trademark class is one that is related to another class; this is due to the Indian Trademark Office (ITO) has determined that applicants registering within Class 20 may register in these other classes too.

If you are not sure while choosing Class 20 for your product, you also consider the following “Related Classes”: Class 8- Hand Tools and Implements, Class 11- Lighting, Heating, Cooking, Class 12- Vehicles & Vehicles Components, Class 17- Rubber, Asbestos and Mica, Class 20-  Furniture and Plastic Goods, and Class 31- Grains and Agriculture.

Trademark Registration fees also vary on bases of the Class system. You must pay a separate registration fee for each class of goods and services that you want to register. For instance, if you are going to register a trademark for Pharmaceuticals in Class 5 and Dental Instruments and Apparatus for Class 10, you should pay two separate fees.

It is necessary to choose the correct class at the time of registering a trademark, if you register a trademark in the wrong class, you must start the registration process from the beginning.
