Martha Stewart Fine Furniture Initiative Has Been Cancelled

(Thanks to FOM Kevin for inquiring about Martha Stewart Fine Furniture.)

Sad to report disappointing news, but the Martha Stewart Fine Furniture partnership with Miles Talbott has been cancelled, according to a representative for the North Carolina-based furniture manufacturer. According to his statement, it sounds as if the partnership was ended by Miles Talbott. Says he, “Some of the upholstery designs will be absorbed into the Miles Talbott line so please let me know if you’re interested in this possibility.”

FOMS: This is disappointing news. I was looking forward to seeing, and perhaps, owning, furniture that reflected Martha’s exquisite taste in design. Hopefully, the program, or something similar, will be resurrected in the future. 

In the meantime, you can enjoy this YouTube video of Martha discussing the now-ended Martha Stewart Fine Furniture program.

Martha Stewart Fine Furniture Launch is On Hold

msff-onhold

Don’t be looking for the Martha Stewart Fine Furniture website to launch anytime soon. The entire MSFF project is on hold for now, I’ve learned. It’s not clear if the delay is related to the recent restructuring at MSLO, the departure of CEO Lisa Gersh, or to another issue. I’ll publish additional details as they become available. FOMs: Dagnabbit, right? I so wanted to see Martha’s eye for quality design extended into the furniture realm, didn’t you? Hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer.

Martha Stewart Fine Furniture Website to Launch August/September

Originally scheduled to launch this month, the Martha Stewart Fine Furniture (MSFF) website launch has now been moved to August/September. I will update with additional information as it becomes available. Well, FOMs: Looks like we will have to wait a little bit longer to browse the MSFF collection. I can’t wait!
UPDATE: I’ve heard from Miles Talbott’s National Sales Manager that the launch has been moved to September/October. (Today’s date is 10/02!) Seems like they’d want the site up and running by the time Martha’s new cooking show debuts on PBS–which is this weekend–right?

Martha Stewart Fine Furniture Website is on Its Way!

The URL for Martha Stewart Fine Furniture is now live! There is no content yet, and no way to provide one’s email in order to receive updates, but those features are almost certainly on their way. I am certainly excited to see what Martha has in store for us, especially after seeing her speak about it in an interview. As I stated earlier on this blog, I received this reply from Richard Graves, the National Sales Manager for Miles Talbott, regarding the collection’s launch timeline: “The web site information should up and running by June with support hard copy literature following.” Can’t wait to see it!

Martha Speaks: On Martha Stewart Fine Furniture

In this interview Martha discusses some of the inspiration behind her upcoming line of high-end furniture, Martha Stewart’s Fine Furniture. She also discusses, briefly, her upcoming show on PBS, Martha Stewart’s Cooking School. Seems PBS has chosen Martha as the heir apparent to certain much-beloved cooking show host on PBS. Go Martha!

From YouTube:

Furniture Today’s Ray Allegrezza talks to Martha Stewart, who unveiled her new Martha Stewart Fine Furniture collection in the Miles Talbott showroom at the spring 2012 High Point Market. With the upholstery made by Miles Talbott and case goods imported from Colombia by Lefa, the new collection includes 25 upholstery and 55 bedroom, dining and occasional pieces.

Martha Stewart Fine Furniture is unveiled at Miles Talbott

Martha already has furniture available at Macy’s, Home Depot and Home Decorator’s Collection. Now, higher-end furniture company Miles Talbott has announced its own Martha Stewart Fine Furniture collection. In San Francisco, the furniture will be available at the Loggia Showroom (San Francisco Design Center) and Wynne Alex (at Sacramento & Broderick Streets). Prices are expected to be at the top of Miles Talbott’s price range.

As of this morning, I did not see any additional information on the collection online. FOMs, please add links to furniture images as they become available!

From Furniture Today:

Martha Stewart said she loves designing furniture and wants to make it usable for the average homeowner as she unveiled her new Martha Stewart Fine Furniture collection in the Miles Talbott showroom Saturday.

“We are thrilled to be introducing this furniture line at High Point,” said Patsy Pollack, senior executive vice president of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, which along with ML Brands International, helped put the venture together with Miles Talbott and Lefa, a Pennsylvania-based importer. “For the first time, we are able to capitalize on Martha’s lifelong passion for collecting furniture, and share that passion with consumers who are eager to decorate their homes with beautiful designs.”
