NEW YORK, Oct 3, 2008 / FW / — After the highly successful unveiling of its Spring 2009 womenswear collection in Septemeb, Calvin Klein is once again getting ready another launch this month – two designer furniture lines – ‘Calvin Klein’ and ‘The curator collection by Calvin Klein Home.’
Slated to launch domestically in January 2009, with select pieces to be previewed at High Point on October 20th, the new lines will consist of modern, timeless pieces in keeping with the Calvin Klein brand aesthetic. All designs have been conceptualized and executed by an in-house team led by Calvin Klein Home’s Creative Director, Amy Mellen.
Both lines take inspiration from the Calvin Klein apparel and accessory lines, as evidenced in the textures, materials, and hardware. Surfaces are elegant in travertine, parchment, marble, smoked glass, brushed stainless steel, and gold leaf, in unique combinations of matte and high gloss finishes.
The ‘Calvin Klein’ furniture line will be available exclusively at select Macy’s nationwide beginning this January. This line is eclectically merchandised into three key groups inspired by their ultimate use – City, Weekend, and Destination.
Each group is delineated by a specific singular wood finish: walnut, whitewash, and teak, respectively. Items in the ‘Calvin Klein’ furniture line at Macy’s will range in price from $850 for a glass end-table to $2,600 for a canopy bed.
‘The curator collection by Calvin Klein Home’ is a more elaborately detailed offering consisting of approximately 65 skus constructed with expert workmanship. Sculptural and sophisticated, ‘the curator collection’ is highly polished, with hand-rubbed, dark walnut-finished and ebonized-finished pieces, accented with leather details and bronze hardware.
‘The curator collection’ is planned to be available at fine furniture retailers nationwide and range from $1,100 for a cocktail table to $5,000 for a walnut sleigh bed with hand-applied gold leaf.
Beginning October 20th, ‘the curator collection’ will be shown exclusively at High Point market on a dedicated floor within the Commerce & Design building, by invitation only.
