Singer/actor/Britney Spears deflower Justin Timberlake has a home line coming out. Or rather he has a flash sale site selling home goods debuting. Or possibly he's just lent his name to some crackpot project his decorator has cooked up. Yeah, let's go with that last one.
Timberlake and his model-looking interior designer Estee (really?) Stanley have announced a collaboration with a flash sale site I've never heard of to
HomeMint's items will be "curated" and (even bigger quotation marks) "designed" by Timberlake and Stanley and include many pieces from the upscale NYC boho home boutique Canvas (they of the recent Jason Wu furniture collabo). "The collection will be available exclusively online at HomeMint.com, to members—who pay a monthly fee of $10 to enjoy discounts and early access to new products—and nonmembers alike." You can still purchase from the site even if you don't join, but you won't enjoy the member discount.
Now I'm not going to call the whole thing a scam, but the star-print dinner plate featured in the second photo above will be sold on HomeMint for $55 a pair to non-members and $40/2 to members. You can find the exact same plate on Canvas' website for the HomeMint member price. Apparently the Justin Timberlake burnish carries a 20% surcharge. So if you're inclined to overpay for a drippy butterfly print hand-selected by a former member of 'N Sync, your day has come!
