Shoulda put a match to it

Dumplings, remember when I told you of Beyoncé's foray into home furnishings? Last week, her House of Deréon line of bedding debuted. The press was invited to Arrow Home Fashions' (licensee of HOD) New York showroom for a first peek at the line.

"The line of woven jacquard and poly satins includes comforters, sheets, pillows, and quilted coverlets. Hot colors and strong graphics prevail." Mmmm, I lurve a poly satin. And that upside down bloated fleur-de-lis is bootylicious!

You will be heartbroken to learn that the line won't be in stores until January. Now your Christmas and Hanukkah gift-giving is shot to hell.

This appears to be one of those occasions when I'm glad to be living on the other side of the world, without accessibility to your usually wonderful world of homewares!

Not until January? oh no. Now what gifts will I get those people I don't like that much?

Sketch42 said...

That first bed looks so pitiful. All propped in the corner like that.

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

Oh. My. GAWD.

Raina Cox said...

Nick Klaus - I'm betting the line will be at TJ Maxx in time for your Valentine's gift needs.

Ugh, can't wait to see the pricing on this crap. Poly Satin, makes me cringe. This line has K-mart written all over it.

My Grandmother said that if you didn't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. So I'm not saying nothing.

Dorm room bedding.

It's dreadful, she's probably already made a fortune on it.

Why can't people stick to their thing? If you're a singer, just sing.

nkp said...

Just because you think you can do it all, does not mean, in fact, you can. Clearly. How much you wanna bet she and Jay Z ain't sleeping on that synthetic pile of yuck?

Agree with Kerry- many are the times I wished I was in the US to be able to buy stuff but this is not one of them.

perhaps a promotion deal; buy a set of bedding get an oddly fitting brothel scented candle!

Tiina said...

hahah I actually think her style has improved lately, and I was so sure she had dumped the crazy mum designs but now this... It's really hideous, but this junk sells. A LOT

dwr said...

Is that second image supposed to look like spiders on eyeballs? Way to give me sweet dreams and beautiful nightmares, Beyonce.

Kerry said...

Bless her heart. She thinks its fabulous and no one but us was kind enough to tell her its hideous. It'll be big with the 7 year-olds though.
-a different Kerry-

poly satin gets me hot and bothered. Boy, oh boy.

Debuting in January?

Look for these masterworks to be in some blog's Black History Month 2011 Interior Design Round-Ups.

If I start the cycle of grief now, I should be finished by February.
