NEW YORK-Celebrity chef Rachael Ray has created a new home furnishings brand, the Rachael Ray Home Collection, and is kicking it off in partnership with Craftmaster Furniture and Legacy Classic with a line of case goods and upholstery.

The new home brand will debut at High Point Market in April, in a new, custom-built, 10,000-square-foot Legacy Classic and Craftmaster Furniture showroom located at 2622 Uwharrie Road in High Point. Later, the brand will expand to include floor coverings, decorative accessories, wall art and lighting.

“Welcoming our new partners, Legacy Classic and Craftmaster, into our family gives me a chance to mirror what I’ve done in the kitchen in the rest of the home—create furniture that is not only beautifully crafted and multi-use but a great value,” Ray said.

Roy Calcagne, president and CEO of Craftmaster, credited Ray with possessing “a terrific sense of style within the home furnishings space and a great eye for fabric and color. We feel there is no better lifestyle brand or one that is more recognizable than Rachael Ray.”

“As we continue to create the new Legacy Classic, collaborating with such a talented and recognizable person as Rachael is not only a privilege but reflects our commitment and passion for providing our retailers with quality furnishings for today’s consumers,” said Don Essenberg, president of Legacy Classic.

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
