Legacy Classic Kids launching Wendy Bellissimo nursery and youth furniture line
Jane Kitchen -- Kids Today, August 14, 2013
With design inspirations guided by juvenile industry veteran designer and lifestyle personality Wendy Bellissimo, Legacy Classic said the collection offers an assortment of easy to mix and match items that provide the look moms and kids want with the long-term style and quality families need.
The Legacy Classic Wendy Bellismo line will debut with one full collection with youth and nursery furniture in multiple finishes. Several choices of beds, plus storage, underbed storage and a desk set will be offered, and retail price points will be around $399 for beds and $499 for cases.
This marks Bellissimo's first foray into the youth furniture industry, but it is a natural progression from her extensive experience in baby and youth apparel, décor, bedding, accessories and interior design. Bellissimo's nursery bedding lines are and have been sold at national retailers like buybuy Baby and Babies "R" Us.
A mother of four daughters age 8 to 13, Bellissimo has worked with celebrity moms such as Kelly Ripa and Brooke Shields, and has also been featured in countless publications and TV shows, including People Magazine and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
"I owe much of my success in the baby and youth market to incorporating the perspectives of both parent and child into my designs," said Bellissimo. "Every concept that evolves through the Wendy Bellissimo brand is a reflection of my ongoing passion to create exceptional and attainable products for real families."
The Legacy Classic Wendy Bellissimo Collection is designed with kids' ever-changing needs in mind, and is produced to be transitionally adaptive throughout different phases of childhood and adolescence. The broad appeal of the timeless, soft vintage style lends itself to spaces beyond the youth market, such as an adult guest bedroom.
"The Wendy Bellissimo Collection exemplifies Legacy Classic Kids' longstanding commitment to producing safe and durable furniture in styles that grow well with families and their homes," said Earl Wang, president of Legacy Classic Kids. "The combination of Wendy's experiences as a mom and expertise in design and décor has been irreplaceable in helping us to create a collection that speaks to the distinctive needs and desires of the baby and youth markets."
The line will hit retail stores in early spring 2014.
