MCLEAN, Va.–Fashion designer Vivienne Tam is the latest star of the apparel world to move into home. Next month at the Las Vegas Market she will debut a new custom upholstery collection with Rowe Furniture. It will also be shown the following month in High Point.
The collection will include both upholstered furniture and accent pieces, featured in a range of exclusive Tam fabrics from her apparel. Included will be her iconic Mao design which has become her signature creation.
“I want to create a truly unique line with subtle and sophisticated pieces inspired by my Chinese roots,” said Tam, who was recently honored with an Elle Style Award and a nomination into the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
Vivienne’s aesthetic is not a traditional East meets West, but rather a design used to create a more harmonious line of furniture with just a hint of Asian mystique, said Stefanie Lucas, chief executive officer of Rowe, in announcing the new program.
