Vern Yip will design for Burnes
ROUND ROCK, Texas-Burnes of Boston is introducing a new level of design to the marketplace with an assortment of home decor from some of the country's most talented and best-known interior designers.
"Initial response to the new line has been overwhelming," said Mike Kirkland, president of Burnes Home Accents. "Burnes Interiors enables retailers to customize their assortments with items created by the best and brightest interior designers working today."
Burnes Interiors products, which capture each designer's distinctive style, will be packaged in collections so consumers can easily recreate interiors conceived by these professionals, the company said. Individual items, as well as the interior designers' signature pieces - created to "anchor" a room - will also be available. Suggested retail prices for Burnes Interiors range from $30 to $200 for the boxed collections, and from $10 to $150 for individual items. The line will be in stores this fall.
"It's exciting to be part of the Burnes of Boston design team, since it reaches so many people," said Kenneth Brown, who has designed homes for such celebrities as Zac Efron, Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra. "Every budget deserves great design."
Vern Yip - the award-winning architectural and interior designer who is known for clean, modern designs with an eclectic touch - concurred. "Professional interior designers know how to find that common thread - in architecture, design, and decoration - that pulls everything together into a beautiful, cohesive, professionally designed space. That's exactly what the Burnes Interiors collections do," he said.
