Fashion Forward: Home Fashion
When you say fashion most people think clothes.But more and more people are getting into fashions for the home.
Todd Oldham and Nicole Miller: just two of the designers coming out of the closet and into your living room.
Designer, Todd Oldham, says "I tried to be as reverant to la z boy sensibility as possible glitter and bedded vinyl seemed just the ticket..."
That's right La z Boy.
Say hello to the new La z Boy.
The company is trying to update this classic piece of Americana.
What better way to give the recliner a facelift than by using top designers.
Tommy Hilfiger did one in his trademark red, white and blue.
Cynthia Rowley did a pink La-z girl and John Bartlett gave his an industrial look using wood and egg carton foam.
Designer, John Bartlett, says "It is very functional but I created it sort of as an art piece because when I created it I didn't know if it would work or not but it's very comfortable."
And these days it seems comfort is key as more and more people are staying at home.
Joy Haizen, Joy & Jake's, says "People are staying more at home entertaining in their household and they want their place to reflect the trends that they're wearing on their body."
These two should know.
They're the pair behind Joy and Jake home and lifestyle products.
Not everyone can afford a new Lazy Boy or a couch, and just like with wardrobe, there's no better way to update the look of your home than with some cool accessories.
Joy and Jake design throw pillows and bedding you can mix and match.
"If you appreciate color and you understand that it's easy to connect the dots with our products we're trying to make it very user friendly..."
The designer La-z Boys are actually being auctioned off on E-bay for charity.
Joy and Jake pillows and bedding are available at "Details."
