I have been a huge fan of Lebron James career in basketball when he first got signed to the Cavaliers. His skills on the court is incredible. With the many endorsements he’s done over the years, never would I have imagined that he would have a furniture line. So it brings me great pleasure to do my first Celeb Edition blog entry on the collection called Home Court by Lebron James. American Signature is the company that makes the furniture and it can be found in Value City Furniture stores nationwide (my living room furniture is from there). Visit www.homecourtbylebron.com Prices are said to range from $149 to a little over one thousand. You can view the commercial w/Lebron below.
This isn’t solely Lebron’s idea. His longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson has been quoted in Harper’s Bazaar as saying she’s more into furniture than fashion. It was her who helped design the line and she one day aspires to exhibit her own line in Milan at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
Some labeled this venture for Lebron as bizarre. But I find many celebs are interested in interior design from rapper Plies, to Demi Moore & Taylor Swift who all have been quoted as saying they have a special interest in the industry and or decorating. Some who already have their own clothing lines, venture off into a HOME collection like Daisy Fuentes & Vera Wang for Kohl’s. How many little boys do you know that love sports or have a sports themed room? My first adolescent clients were little boys who wanted a room decked out in all things sports related so to me, the idea of a furniture line is brilliant.
I love the details like the basketball outline in the wrought iron side of the bed. Believe it or not but one of my final projects for my AutoCad class back in college was to design a dorm room. I love the challenge limited space poses and created what I thought was a unique idea with stairs leading to the upper bunk. I made drawers for storage out of the risers of the steps. Well what do we have here? LOL I could have been RICH had I got the idea patent (if it wasn’t already taken then). But how neat is that? I love out the box ways of thinking when it comes to utilizing space. What do you think of the look?
