Paula Deen Launching Furniture Line
Paula Deen twittered about it back in January, but earlier this week Furniture Today ("Number One In The Furniture Industry, and Growing In Popularity Daily") reported details about the upcoming Paula Deen Home line, to be manufactured by Universal Furniture.
Deen told Furniture Today: "Some of the furniture is shabby chic and has a distressed, casual look. We also have pieces that are solid wood that have more of a formal look. These pieces can be mixed and matched. We saw this as a great opportunity to have Universal come through my house and look at all my furniture. They looked at everything I have been collecting over the years and duplicated those in an affordable way."
We're not sure about the furniture being entirely affordable though: "Four-piece bedrooms and eight piece dining sets - including a table and six chairs and a buffet hutch unit - are targeted to retail from $2,799 to $3,299."
Paula Deen already attaches her name to candles, carpets, and cookware, so the furniture is the next logical step in assuming her role as the Southern Martha Stewart.
