Diane von Furstenberg is one of the most highly recognized names in the fashion world, like Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani and Vera Wang. Now, here name will also be recognized in the world of home goods. In partnership with Springs home furnishing company, Diane von Furstenberg will release an international line of furniture, bedding, tablecloths. and bath accessories next year in January.

If this move sounds familiar, it’s probably because Vera Wang is also first and foremost a high fashion designer, but she also has a line of home goods. I haven’t yet found information on the price range for these new von Furstenberg goods, but if it’s anything like the price range on her clothing, I’d need more than a cash ’til payday loan to afford it.

Diane von Furstenberg’s career

This move into home furnishings and other goods expands Diane von Furstenberg’s already sizable empire. Diane von Furstenberg has worked with several different industries. In 1985 she founded a publishing house.  She started a cosmetics and home-shopping line in 1991. A few years ago she designed a Sidekick smartphone with T-Mobile.

And, of course, she has been a judge on “Project Runway” several times. (How do you think I heard of her?) Other fun facts about Diane von Furstenberg include: She was born Diane Simone Michelle Halfin. At age 18, she married a German prince, Egon of Furstenberg. Officially, that made her a princess. However, the two got divorced after having two children. In 2001, Diane von Furstenberg married Barry Diller, an American media mogul. Talk about a couple of power couples! Regarding her upcoming line of home goods, Diane von Furstenberg said:

“The design of your home is a reflection of who you are,” says the Long Island Press. “I am thrilled to be able to express the DVF spirit through this new collection.”
