Iris Apfel x HSN features is inspired by the by the playfulness and fanfare of the circus, and includes 94 pieces in total, ranging in price from $269.95 – $1,199.95. It includes headboards, settees, chairs, ottomans, and other pieces, totaling 19 different silhouettes and 15 fabric options.

The collection was created in partnership with Cloth & Company. Started by DwellStudio founder Christiane Lemieux and Skyline Furniture president Meganne Wecker, it uses 3D imaging and digital printing to take the production time for custom upholstered pieces from eight to twelve weeks down to just seven to nine days. The company has previously collaborated with Oh Joy for Target and yes, even Apartment Therapy.

“Decorating your home is a way to express your personal style which is why I’ve partnered with Cloth & Company to create this furniture collection for HSN,” Apfel said in a statement. “The bold colorful prints in my collection reflect my unique and spirited sense of design.”

“Iris Apfel’s whimsical approach to life, fashion and individuality continues to inspire our customers to express themselves through their own unique style,” adds Carmen Bauza, Chief Merchandising Officer for HSN. “We are excited to build upon the tremendous success that Iris has achieved at HSN in jewelry, fashion and home textiles, and decor by adding an exquisite new furniture collection that reflects her passion for design and originality.”

This isn’t Apfel’s first foray into something new; in 2016, she embarked into the world of wearable tech, as well as getting her own line of emojis (despite not knowing what an emoji is).

The collection is available now on HSN.com, and Iris will debut the collection live on HSN TV on Tuesday, December 5 at 9 am.
