Vern Yip to offer home furnishings line on HSN
June 16, 2011,
Designer and TV personality Vern Yip is endorsing the products of contemporary home furnishings retailer I.O. Metro.
The collection, to debut July 26, will include upholstery and bedroom furniture, a top-of-bed line, rugs, lamps, and other décor, but no dining room furniture, HSN spokesperson Allie Lynch said. The collection will be Yip's first.
Retail prices will be in the middle price points, with a loveseat at $799, lamps starting at $239, headboards starting at $499 and pillows at $40.
"Balancing work and family life has inspired me to continue my quest to create easy solutions for everyday problems," said Yip, a prominent designer on HGTV. "Together with HSN, my goal is to simplify the challenges of the home space while bringing to life its personality and embracing functionality."
As part of HSN's 34th birthday festivities, the network also has launched a sweepstakes contest that includes two round-trip plane tickets to St. Petersburg, a two-night stay at a resort and golf club here, a personal home consultation by Yip and a $5,000 room makeover.
