April 20, 2016

New home collection by multi-talented Kelly Ripa features bedding, furniture and area rugs at select Macy’s stores and on macys.com

NEW YORK, NY – April 20, 2016 – Today, Macy’s announces the launch of a new home collection by Kelly Ripa. Inspired by Ripa’s well-known love of all things home and her passion for creating beautiful spaces, Kelly Ripa Home brings a fresh outlook to design for family living. The versatile line will include bedding sets, furniture and area rugs for the contemporary home. The full collection will be available in select Macy’s stores and on macys.com for summer 2016.

The spirit of Kelly’s personality, combined with her elegant and on-point design aesthetic brings a fresh perspective to the home category. “Home is where personal style truly comes to life, so I think a well-loved home is where great design counts most,” said Kelly Ripa. “This collection is designed to inspire and light up a room with truly versatile pieces that change up a room effortlessly.”

First to launch are her 10-piece bedding sets featuring seasonal trends such as vibrant blossoms, subdued florals, and bright, whimsical prints. Each bedding set provides everything to transform a bedroom space, including a comforter, two standard shams, two European shams, three decorative pillows, bed skirt and a plush throw.

Kelly Ripa Home area rugs have a sophisticated point of view, fusing both contemporary and traditional elements including damasks, medallion and blossoming vine motifs, ranging from rich navy to ivory and grey.

Coming soon to stores and on macys.com, Kelly Ripa Home furniture will include the core pieces for bedroom, dining and living room spaces, including contemporary dressers and sofas in crisp neutrals.

Now in her 15th year with the show, Ripa is the Emmy-winning co-host of the syndicated morning talk series, “LIVE with Kelly and Michael” on ABC. The collection marks the first for her in the home and interior design space.

“Kelly Ripa warms the hearts of America each morning through her talk show and we’re thrilled to welcome her into the Macy’s family with the Kelly Ripa Home collection,” said Shawn Austin, Macy’s EVP/GMM of Home. “Whether you are starting a new home or refreshing your current one, there is something for everyone in this new line.”

The bedding and rug collection is now available at select Macy’s stores and on macys.com, with furniture launching in summer 2016. For more information and to view Kelly Ripa Home, visit macys.com.
