Legacy will be showing existing best sellers within the Trisha Yearwood Home Collection at the upcoming October High Point Market, including collections that debuted at the previous spring market.
“I am excited to see the Trisha Yearwood Home Collection continue with Chris Pelcher and the team at Legacy Classic|Modern Furniture,” Yearwood said. “My highest priority is to continue serving the retailers who have put their trust in the Trisha Yearwood brand. We share the commitment of providing affordable quality home furnishings to our customers, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings.”
According to the company, the first order of business is connecting with the line’s retail partners, many of whom are current Legacy customers. “We don’t want Trisha’s retail partners to miss a beat, particularly as we head into the busiest time of year. Our goal is to make this as seamless as possible,” said Pelcher, president of Legacy
Legacy is in the process of securing the inventory for all current and future open orders. Plans for new Trisha Yearwood Home Collection introductions are in the works, with a goal to premier those offerings in April 2024.
“Being able to work with Trisha Yearwood, her team, and one of the longest-running collections in our industry is a true honor,” Pelcher said. “In my opinion, one of the reasons Trisha’s collection has stood the test of time is because of her legendary level of involvement with her product and her participation in the markets. She has been the key factor in the momentum of the brand for close to 10 years.”
The licensed collection had previously been under a partnership with Klaussner Home Furnishings until the company abruptly shut down earlier this month, putting 884 employees out of work. Yearwood vowed last week that the collection would continue and her team was in negotiations to find a new home for the line.
This is not the first time Legacy inked a licensing agreement. The company currently has licensing agreements with Rachael Ray and Paula Deen, also celebrity chefs, and earlier this year, the company announced plans to move into the motion upholstery category.
