Design guru, life coach, interior designer, author and makeover television personality Libby Langdon has partnered with furniture maker Braxton Culler to produce her first-ever licensed furniture collection, which will launch at the High Point Market this Fall.

The upholstered furniture collection encompasses sofas and occasional chairs, as well as upholstered headboards, benches, ottomans and dining chairs.

“Stylistically speaking, the collection reflects the needs and desires of my clients. It’s easy and elegant for everyday,” Langdon says. “The key words are sleek, transitional and clean-lined. Time after time, I find that my clients don’t want anything too modern, but they do like fresh, updated silhouettes that are not too fussy or formal.”

A veteran of makeover television, from HGTV’s “Small Space Big Style,” to FOX’s “Design Invasion,” Langdon is currently Rachael Ray’s go-to makeover guru on “The Rachael Ray Show” and “day-kover” expert on NBC’s “Open House.”

“Working in makeover television has allowed me to travel across the country going into real peoples’ homes and seeing how America really lives,” Langdon said. “That has been an invaluable learning tool. It’s fascinating to see that there are common threads between my makeover clients and my private clients, and all of that information has helped me in developing my furniture collection.”

Says Langdon, “I work on design projects all over the country, everywhere from Dallas, Texas to Newport, Rhode Island, to Jupiter, Florida and the Hamptons. I split my time between New York City and Sag Harbor, NY and I’ve got a large client base along the shores of Long Island and New Jersey. Even with the state of the economy over the last few years, my business has never been busier, and I believe it’s because I offer my clients beautiful, chic rooms at a smart, affordable price. I think interior design should be fun, easy and accessible, and most of all I want to give people the tools, support and encouragement to design the most beautiful, functional and practical spaces that they can, no matter the challenges or the size. I’m incredibly excited to be collaborating with Braxton Culler to bring this vision to life!”

“Libby saw a need in our product line for an upper-end look aimed at younger customers,” says Brack Culler, vice president of Braxton Culler, Inc. “We knew that her talent, combined with her fun, down-to-earth style, which allows her to connect immediately with people, would be a terrific fit for our family-run business.”
