Legacy Classic Kids to launch Wendy Bellissimo line
August 14, 2013,
HIGH POINT — Youth furniture specialist Legacy Classic Kids has announced a new licensed nursery and youth furniture line with designer Wendy Bellissimo that will launch at the October High Point Market.
The company said the line is expected to hit retail floors next spring and will feature an assortment of mix-and-match pieces that offer "soft vintage" styles as suitable for guest bedrooms as they are youth bedrooms.
This is Bellissimo's first foray into furniture, but officials believe it is a natural progression of her talents in the baby and youth products sector.
"The Wendy Bellissimo Collection exemplifies Legacy Classic Kids' longstanding commitment to producing safe and durable furniture in styles that grow well with families and their homes," said Earl Wang, president of Legacy Classic Kids, in a statement. "The combination of Wendy's experiences as a mom and expertise in design and décor has been irreplaceable in helping us to create a collection that speaks to the distinctive needs and desires of the baby and youth markets."
"I owe much of my success in the baby and youth market to incorporating the perspectives of both parent and child into my designs," Bellissimo said. "Every concept that evolves through the Wendy Bellissimo brand is a reflection of my ongoing passion to create exceptional and attainable products for real families."
The company said it will reveal details about product and pricing closer to the High Point Market.
