Donny Osmond takes on home office

LAS VEGAS – Celebrity licenses sometimes get a dubious look from longtime industry folk, but Donny Osmond appears to have a grasp on what makes a furniture line tick.

His collaboration with Coaster Co. includes home office furniture, and he shared some thoughts with Furniture/Today Editor in Chief Bill McLoughlin during a video interview at the recent Las Vegas Furniture Market.

Powell SlaughterPowell Slaughter | Senior Editor

I'm Powell Slaughter, senior editor at Furniture/Today. I returned to the publication in January 2015 after nine years of writing about furniture retail strategies and best practices at a monthly magazine focusing on home furnishings retail operations. Prior to that, I spent 10 years with F/T covering wood furniture, the last five of those as case goods editor. While I cover occasional, home entertainment and home office here, a major responsibility is expanding our attention to the logistics side of the industry. I hope my articles will encourage a dialogue with retailers, vendors, third-party logistics specialists and carriers. I’d love to hear your ideas, concerns and suggestions for smoother flow of material and goods.
