It has been a whirlwind week or two with my book coming out last week and this week and launching three product collections!  Down to Earth has been really well-received so far so I’m really hoping it stays that way!!   I’ve been having trouble falling asleep at night because my mind is racing and then waking up at the crack of dawn too excited to sleep!! 🙂  It’s truly been a crazy exciting time!!!

The first collection launching is a tile collection with Architectural Ceramics, a Northern Virginia based national tile brand and I’m so happy with how it turned out!!!  I will be back soon to fully share it all with you but for now, here’s a peek:

From the Lauren Liess HABITAT COLLECTION: Sol de Folium from the Terra line | hand-painted terracotta

You can view the “Terra” collection here and we are releasing coordinating the brochures for the stone and ceramics collections with more basic colors in a week or two (These babies are literally hot off the press!!)  {You can contact Architectural Ceramics to get info & pricing if you’re interested.}

I’m in North Carolina at High Point Furniture Market launching two furniture collections (casegoods + upholstery for 1 full assortment) and so far, the experience has been amazing.  I’ve got to run in just a bit but I wanted to share just a couple of snippets from the showrooms in the days before they open!!

The “Lady” Sofa in white Belgian linen machine washable slipcover | The Joinery Side Tab;e in Linewashed Oak | Vintage Rug available in our shop for a limited time | Art by One Kings Lane

Art above available through One kings Lane here!

 

The teams at Woodbridge Furniture & Taylor King Furniture have been running around like crazy to get everything ready for this Market and I couldn’t be more thankful, happy and excited about all of the work we’ve done.  Yesterday, I got to meet the sales teams from around the country and present the collections to them and it was seriously humbling.  I feel so thankful that these amazing companies have put their trust in me and have let me have such creative leeway.  I’m really honored to be working with these sales teams and they care so deeply about offering a special product to their clients.  We had a delicious home-cooked dinner last night at Taylor King and I can’t stop thinking about the food lol!!

Both collections will be available at retail stores throughout the country and I will get a list up on the website ASAP!! People will able to sit in the pieces and pick out your fabrics & finishes in person!! yay!!!

 

The Paradigm Sofa in black linen | The Architect Sofa in Lauren Liess Thistle | the Triad Table in worn black | The Modern Ming Cocktail table in Limewashed Oak | Vintage ug available for a limited time in our shop

 

I’ll also be offering the collections in our shop!  (And, designers- heads up- the Taylor King Collection is available to designers at stocking dealer pricing and it’s an amazing value to both you & your clients!!  If you don’t have one already, I would set up an account asap!!)   I’m so excited to be able to have these collections available at such reasonable price points!!

We’re loading the Lauren Liess & Co shop up with my collections and one-of-a-kind pieces and that will include art, rugs, lighting, and objects!!  We’re adding them as we fast as we can and it’s a bit of a rolling launch with new items being added each week.

I’m truly honored to be representing some incredible artists and our first artist is Courtney J Garret.

 

Courtney and her work are incredible and we’re honored to be offering her pieces for sale both online and in our showrooms at Market!! Courtney will be here too & she’s so sweet!!
