I had a chance to speak with renowned acress and artist  Jane Seymour about her new furniture designs last month in High Point, North Carolina.

Seymour premiered a trio of furniture collections a year ago, including Palace Gates, Cobblestone Road and Hollywood Swank. This fall, her Grand Shore ( inspired by grand hotels of bygone eras), and Lakeshore Retreat (inspired by dreamy summer vacations by the lake) were introduced.

Seymour’s designs are inspired by her passion for art and design. (Seymour also recently designed an Open Hearts necklace for Kay Jewelers)  She feels strongly about developing unique and versatile furniture collections that offer consumers affordable elegance. Her style is decidedly nostalgic and romantic, though her Hollywood Swank collection below has a fair bit of glam!

Hollywood Swank is one of Jane Seymour's furniture designs, by AICO/Amini Innovation Corp.

A new home department just opened at Lord & Taylor’s flagship store in Manhattan. The company hasn’t sold furniture or home furnishing products in 20 years, but is testing consumer interest in furniture, bedding and tabletop. 

Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein brands headline. Prices aren’t for the faint of heart (try $130 for a toss pillow), but the styling lives up to what you’d expect from these brands.

A few highlights from their grand opening this week…
