I love home furnishing interior designs and my passion for it went to a new level when I discovered well-known architecture aficionado Brad Pitt had debuted a line of Art Deco-style furniture in partnership with American furniture maker Pollaro back in 2012. Pitt-Pollaro, in limited quantities in the U.S., designed armchairs, side tables, dining tables, a bed and case goods as part of the collection. Sophisticated and sleek in design, standouts include a patent leather armchair, tables with twisting geometrical metal legs and a marble bathtub for two!
Probably best-known as Kelly Kapowski from “Saved by the Bell,” actress Tiffani Thiessen
launched PetitNest; this modern nursery furniture brand was created with designer Lonni Paul, a one-time contestant on “HGTV Design Star.” The line includes cribs, dressers, changing stations and gliders.
Cindy Crawford has long had a line of furniture that has been carried in megastore Rooms to Go and the collection includes living room, bedroom, dining room designs and classic stand-alone pieces.
Sofia Vergara’s furniture can also be found in Rooms to Go, which includes pieces for the living room, bedroom and dining room. Her collection can best be described as a sleek and modern aesthetic with a bit of pattern here and there.
Reality TV’s Lauren Conrad has a feminine bedding collection at Kohl’s, LC Lauren Conrad, beautifully designed for a young girl’s room. Conrad also owns The Little Market, which sells beautiful lifestyle accents, home décor and fashion accessories.
Supermodel and the widow of rock star David Bowie, Iman, known for her Iman Cosmetics, now has dived full force into the interiors world with a line of exotic fabrics for Calico. The line can be found in drapery, bedding, pillows, upholstery and more. The fabric collection includes geometric prints, florals, ikats, paisleys and botanicals.
Recording artist, actress, fashion designer and former reality star Jessica Simpson debuted a bedding collection for Bed Bath & Beyond. The line includes feminine comforter sets and throw pillows. This takes her over $1billion dollar fashion-house empire into a new direction.
The Kathy Ireland collection was one of the featured prizes I produced as an award on the game show “Wheel of Fortune” years ago. Humble beginnings for Ireland as a designer begin when she started a line of socks made with Kmart that led to a clothing line, which eventually evolved into a brand marketing company.
Lastly, LeBron James’ home line, wittingly dubbed “The Home Court,” basketball superstar James teamed up with American Signature to launch a home furnishing line targeted to children. At least he stayed true to his roots – the line features basketball-themed items, including desks, dressers and beds.
