After 13 years as a fashion designer, Trina Turk is making her foray into the world of interiors, according to WWD. Armed with new investment capital, she has taken her "vivid signature prints from her classic sportswear to plush pillows, sleek Lucite chairs and other home furnishings." In Spring 2009, Turk will also collaborate with F. Schumacher & Co. "to produce outdoor upholstery fabrics that are resistant to fading, water and stains," bringing her signature style to your outdoor furnishings. Turk is also seeing growth in other areas, venturing heavily into retail rather than primarily wholesale.
Turk's Palm Springs and Los Angeles outposts were designed by none other than Kelly Wearstler, and I couldn't think of a better match. Wearstler really did a fantastic job of emulating that beach and resort style with the casual glamour that is so distinct to Turk's designs. But, I always hoped to see Turk venture into interiors herself, so I'm thrilled that time has now come. Another tidbit of information: Turk's New York City camp was designed by Jonathan Adler. I'm so eager to see these designs: you know how I love my sleek Lucite chairs! Of course, I'll share images with you as soon as heavenly possible.
