Universal Furniture announced its new partnership with L.A.-based interior designer and real estate developer, Erinn Valencich of Erinn V. Design Group. The furniture manufacturer and designer will debut their first collection at High Point Market in April.
“We’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to work with Erinn and develop something that showcases the evolution of styling at Universal,” said Universal Vice President of Marketing Neil MacKenzie. “Erinn’s work in design ranges from product to a variety of luxury interior projects. These experiences influenced the project and we are excited to showcase our work together this spring at Market.”
The collection will be called Erinn V x Universal and will contain furnishings in both casegoods and upholstery for living room, dining room, bedroom and home office.
“After designing furniture for nearly 20 years, I wanted to partner with a company that makes a terrific product at a great price point, so I can share my design aesthetic with a broader audience,” said Valencich. “Universal Furniture is the best I’ve seen at what they do.”
Retailers and interior designers around the world trust Universal Furniture’s award-winning, smart and stylish designs to create modern, well-appointed living spaces for the whole home. The company’s casegood, upholstery, accent and outdoor designs are developed under the brand names Universal Furniture, Miranda Kerr Home and Coastal Living.
