To celebrate his 50th anniversary in show business, Donny Osmond decided to go home — to your home, actually, with a line of decorative accessories and furniture.
He and his wife, Debbie, have launched the Donny Osmond Home Collection. The collection boasts more than 500 products in multiple categories, including case goods, upholstery, bedding, preserved botanicals, wall art, lighting, rugs, and even home fragrance and doorknobs.
“It’s something we have been talking about for many years,” says the performer. The couple, who are parents to five grown children and have six grandchildren, wanted something they could do together well into their golden years.
The philosophy behind the line is family centric, comfortable and transitional. The tagline for the collection is “Making Home and Family Number One” — something the Osmonds have tried to do in their own lives.
The Osmonds’ personal taste leans toward casual and contemporary, which is reflected in many of their products.
The couple enlisted the help of 12 manufacturers, including A & B Home for the occasional furniture and decorative items, Anji Mountain for the natural fiber area rugs, KAS for area rugs, Bougainvillea for the preserved botanicals, Ellison First Asia for the bedding, and Lamp Works for the lighting. They have even introduced a line of stylish fans.
With that in mind, the Osmonds have kept the collection at a moderate price point.
“I would say it will be reasonable, and most families can afford it,” she says.
Many of the products can be purchased on Amazon now, and the website http://www.donnyosmond.com has a full database of retailers from national chains to smaller shops by ZIP codes.
