Susan Lucci Home in development
Clint Engel -- Furniture Today, September 8, 2008
New York – Iconic, Emmy-award winning actress, Broadway star, cabaret performer and philanthropist Susan Lucci is developing a collection of home products, expanding a licensed empire that includes fashion, fragrance, health and beauty care products.
Lucci’s home collection will reflect her eclectic decorating style, which ranges from the elegance and glamour of the 1930s and Art Deco periods to exotic woods, inlaid furniture and needlepoint rugs.
The diversity of her design interests will reflect the influence of her New York apartment, infused with Art Deco themes; her Hampton’s home, a classic shingle with Scandinavian touches; and her Long Island, N.Y. family home, which favors a Georgian in mood.
Her other consumer products include a line of apparel sold exclusively on Home Shopping Network and HSN.com, and on her own website www.susanlucci.com; a lingerie line, a hair care collection; a skin care system that has sold five million kits; and a health care and fitness line.
Kerry Glasser, president and founder of Concept Marketing Group, which collaborates with Lucci, said, “Clearly, leveraging the power of Susan Lucci – the person and the brand – across multiple home-related product classifications will be significant to a retailer’s goal of providing their customers with an exclusive product mix.”
