“I’m going to need more than a few pillows,” quipped Ellen DeGeneres, right after we playfully suggested she take a few of the first ED Ellen DeGeneres samples for her home. “I’m taking them all!” While starstruck in the moment, we still felt a sense of appreciation; a validation of the months of design work alongside the ED team to bring her first line of rugs, pillows and throws to fruition.
Today, her well-documented love of interiors takes a new form: ED Ellen DeGeneres. Having already launched a line of bedding, serve-ware, and table linens, ED is rolling out furniture with Thomasville in early 2017, as well as seven rug collections, three throw collections, and over 50 decorative pillows with Loloi.
Relentless as her schedule is, Ellen insisted on personally reviewing and approving each rug, pillow and throw for the launch firsthand. “I think it’s important that I’m not just signing over my name,” says Ellen. “This is me, every decision on design, everything I’m putting out there.”
