We wrote about former “Queen Eye For The Straight Guy” Thom Filicia bringing a bedding line to QVC earlier this week and here, finally, is the official press release.
THOM FILICIA IS AT HOME WITH NEW QVC COLLECTION
Celebrity Interior Designer to Debut His First Bedding Line with the Multimedia Retailer
West Chester, Pa. (February 15, 2011) – From starring in such hit shows as Tacky House, Dress My Nest and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy to penning his one-of-a kind design book, Thom Filicia has dedicated his career to helping others create the perfect living space. Now, the Emmy Award winner is about to take his passion one step further as he unveils his brand-new bedding collectionon QVC.
Thom Filicia Designs for Living is scheduled to debut Wednesday, February 16 at 7 PM (ET) and will include an exquisite assortment of top-of-bed pieces, including comforters, pillows, throws and sheet sets. The collection employs beautiful pops of color combined with interesting textures and bold patterns brought together with classic detailing. The design is fresh, fun and inviting with an inspiring collected and coordinated look.
“While Thom may best be known for his television roles, his unique design aesthetic and fresh, approachable style are what truly make him a star,” said John Kelly, vice president of merchandising for QVC. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to offer this exciting new line to our shoppers.”
Priced between $28.00 and $250.00, Thom Filicia Designs for Living marks Filicia’s first bedding collection. Believing that “building a bed” is similar to “building a wardrobe,” the designer ensured that each piece was created to coordinate with others in the line.
“The design of this bedding collection is all about taking motifs and designs that we love and enlarging the scale, cleaning up the details and injecting it with a fresh, powerful color palette,” said Filicia. “My inspiration was to fill that void with bedding that is well priced, well made and filled with personality – something accessible and exceptional at the same time.”
Thom Filicia Designs for Living will be available through QVC starting February 16 at QVC.com or 1.800.345.1515, while supplies last.
