It’s hard to believe Art Van Furniture welcomed the Cindy Crawford Home furniture line nearly 10 years ago. During that memorable kickoff event, the supermodel businesswoman (and our friend) greeted and signed autographs for hundreds of our guests, and since then, it’s been a match made in heaven.
Cindy was approached to do a furniture collection after her Malibu home was featured in Elle Decor in the early 2000s. And it’s no wonder; she has impeccable taste and exudes style. Through the years, we’ve been proud to showcase dozens of her living room, dining room, and bedroom collections. In fact, Cindy Crawford Home’s classic designs are among our most popular, and we’ve enjoyed a wonderful partnership over the past decade.
A few years ago, Cindy was asked to describe her style: “Not too trendy,” she told the mlive reporter. “I think my style is more what I’m not, and I think the furniture line really reflects that. There’s an awareness of what is on trend, but I would not go with a trend if I didn’t feel like it would flatter me. And I feel like with the furniture it’s the same thing.”
Cindy likes to encourage homeowners to look at design magazines, catalogs, and Pinterest. “It’s good to see if there’s a theme or commonality to things that resonate with you,” she said in the article. “I like a lot of different styles but it doesn’t work to throw them all together. I think it’s worth it to invest in quality. The throw pillows, make them the fashion statement, or paint because it’s easy to change. But your rug or sofa, you want them to carry through.”
Cindy’s favorite piece from her collection is the Illusions Sectional. “It’s really easy to decorate around,” she said. “I love leather: leather sofas and leather chairs. I think it wears so well and it’s really practical for a family. It looks rich, but if your kid drops your popsicle on it it’s not ruined. One of the things that’s important to me is how comfortable things are. The fabrics have to feel good.”
The Cindy Crawford Home Collection unveils new styles each season. Here are three of our favorites:
Cindy Crawford Home Chatham Collection reads formal or casual, depending on how you accessorize it. The beautiful blue accents provide a sense of drama and put you on trend.
Vibrant colors and gorgeous patterns make the Venus Collection a feast for the eyes. The Suede-So-Soft microfiber fabric and deep tufting also make it a welcome and comfortable retreat.
Straight lines and a streamlined scale provide a classic and tasteful look in the Regis Collection. Neutral colors are easy to live with and timeless, making this an excellent investment.
