HIGH POINT, NC – Legacy Classic Kids and Wendy Bellissimo Media, Inc. today announce plans to introduce a new line of Nursery and Youth furniture developed under a new licensing partnership. The Wendy Bellissimo Collection is set to launch at the fall 2013 High Point Furniture Market. With design inspirations guided by Wendy Bellissimo, an accomplished designer and mother of four, the collection offers an assortment of easy to mix and match items that provide the look moms and kids want with the long-term style and quality families need.
Bellissimo is one of the most respected and uniquely qualified designers of baby and youth environments, accessories and apparel. Not only has she worked with celebrity moms such as Kelly Ripa and Brooke Shields to create beautiful and functional rooms for their children, she has also been featured in countless publications and TV shows, including People Magazine and The Oprah Winfrey Show. Bellissimo’s nursery bedding lines are and have been sold at national retailers like buybuy Baby and Babies “R” Us. Today, as a mother of four with an extensive background in baby and youth apparel, décor, bedding, accessories and interior design, Bellissimo’s expansion of her expertise into the youth furniture industry is a natural progression. While it marks Bellissimo’s first foray into the youth furniture market, the Wendy Bellissimo Collection with Legacy Classic Kids expands on her long-standing and ever-growing connection with parents and families.
“I owe much of my success in the baby and youth market to incorporating the perspectives of both parent and child into my designs,” says Bellissimo. “Every concept that evolves through the Wendy Bellissimo brand is a reflection of my ongoing passion to create exceptional and attainable products for real families.”
Legacy Classic has specialized in quality bedroom furniture since 1999, and recognizes the importance of versatility and functionality in juvenile bedroom spaces. The Wendy Bellissimo Collection is designed with kids’ ever-changing needs in mind, and is produced to be transitionally adaptive throughout different phases of childhood and adolescence. The broad appeal of the timeless, soft vintage style lends itself to spaces beyond the youth market, such as an adult guest bedroom.
“The Wendy Bellissimo Collection exemplifies Legacy Classic Kids’ longstanding commitment to producing safe and durable furniture in styles that grow well with families and their homes,” said Earl Wang, president of Legacy Classic Kids. “The combination of Wendy’s experiences as a mom and expertise in design and décor has been irreplaceable in helping us to create a collection that speaks to the distinctive needs and desires of the baby and youth markets.”
The line will hit retail stores in early spring 2014.
