Rachel Ray exhibited her new home collection, coming to stores this fall, at a showroom in North Carolina. The line, which is divided into three collections, is being produced by Legacy Classic Furniture according to Ray’s designs, some of which she sketched herself, reports the Indianapolis Star.
The SoHo collection features, “small scale, ash gray furniture with Mid-Century Modern overtones.” It includes a kitchen island with seating, a refuse chute with a hidden trash can, a butcher block top, and drawers for stowing cutlery and dishes.
The Upstate collection has “a distressed cherry finish and a traditional attitude.” It features a mini vertical mud room; a versatile piece with key hooks, cord management, a white board, a cork board, junk trays, cubbies, drawers, and a pull-out work table.
The Highline collection was “designed in homage to the sophisticated area in New York.” There is a lingerie chest that doubles as a jewelry armoire, an entertainment cabinet with sliding doors and drawers, and a loveseat that pulls out into a bed.
Ray’s collection is described as “furniture with a purpose.” Ray says that she wanted to “create furniture that is not only beautifully crafted and multi-use, but a great value.”
