Typically I avoid any sort of special “celebrity designed” line of goods. When a “star” tries to cross into product it can be awkward, unless its a natural reflection of their talents, of course. Still, even knowing how particularly skilled (read: insanely talented) Ellen Degeneres is at interior design (she has a whole book out on the subject and her houses have been featured in numerous design magazines) I was still very hesitant to check out her collection for Thomasville. And I LOVE Ellen. Like, LOOOOOOOOOVE Ellen. But finally this week I peeked at the site and was TOTALLY and pleasantly surprised at the collection. Its a strong mix of mid-century and rustic-modern and there are quite a few fantastic pieces that stand on their own or also serve as super tailored basics. I guess I was taken aback at how artistic and yet simple it all is. And so I thought I better share it with you (this is in no way sponsored!) I believe Thomasville has many fabric choices to work with for their upholstered pieces so don’t let a fabric shown deter you :)
Take this bed for example. AMAZING! She (and her team of talented furniture designers, of course) utilized the clean, classic lines of a Windsor chair and turned it into a bed. I adore this!
This sofa was in the ad I saw that made me check out the site– love the spaced nailhead detail and streamlined shape but also that it has loose cushions, making it comfy as well!
The chair version is particularly fetching in this skinny stripe. And this two tier side table is super useful (small lamp on top, books and magazines below!)
This armoire is STUNNING! look at that detail!
A white slipcovered sofa with perfect lines. No brainer.
These two chairs are great accents- the leather has a strong mid-century style while the other (one of my favorite pieces from this collection) has primitive/ rustic style but also a modern feel while also being very sculptural.
This bed has a few options (check them out here) that are really interesting!
Love this classic mid-century dresser.
A great accent chair that has traditional lines but done is a very chic way, and a barstool with interesting details.
The woven texture of this wood chest would be as great in an entry or living space as it would be in a bedroom.
This channel tufted sofa is sleek but still looks inviting!
This modern desk is SUPER cool.
As is this desk (note the little animal details on the foot bar!)
This entry table (or sofa table) is a nice mix of rustic and modern too.
I encourage you to also check out the spread from Arch Digest on one of her California homes… *SIGH*
OK, well I’m at the airport bright and early to jet off to work on an exciting project I hope to share with you very soon! :)
