Meet The Iconic First Furniture Collection By Iris Apfel – Iris Apfel, the 96-year-old style star, textile artist, occasional cover girl, and chic home decor magpie, can now add a new line to her substantial resume: furniture designer. Interior Design Shop invites you to meet her iconic and incredible first furniture collection.
The nonagenarian influencer has teamed up with Cloth & Company, a Chicago-based customizable furniture company inspired by the fast fashion business model, to create a line of home furnishings for the Home Shopping Network. The furnishings, true to Apfel’s distinctive personal style, are strongly defined by eye-catching prints and graphic lines that recall midcentury silhouettes.
She explains, “Decorating your home is a way to express your personal style which is why I’ve partnered with furniture collection for HSN. The bold colorful prints in my collection reflect my unique and spirited sense of design.”to create this
For this collection, Apfel was inspired by the circus, and her playful aesthetic is very much in evidence, making both oblique and subtle references to the pageantry of a classic, Barnum & Bailey’s-style affair.
One warm-hued floral print is adorned with circus tents and elephants, while elsewhere a tiered headboard hints at the silhouette of the big top. Other furnishings in the line include foldable room screens, flounced ottomans, and upholstered bar-height chairs.
Prices for the collection range from $269.95 – $1199.95, and items are available exclusively on HSN.com.
