HIGH POINT — The Trisha Yearwood Home Collection that lost its long-time home in the industry with the abrupt closing of Klaussner Furniture on Aug. 7 has found a new industry partner.
The collection has now moved over to Legacy Classic | Modern, which will begin showing bestsellers in the line this October, including collections launched at the April High Point Market.
With an eye on connecting with and serving the line’s existing retail customers, the company said it also is in the process of securing inventory for those accounts, many of whom are also customers of Legacy Classic | Modern. It also is working on new product for the collection, which is expected to debut in April 2024.
Chris Pelcher, president of Legacy, said, “Like the rest of the industry, we were saddened to hear of Klaussner’s closing. It’s still hard to get my head around; I feel for the employees and their families.”
But he said that he and the Legacy team are excited at the opportunity to work with Yearwood, particularly because of her involvement with developing each collection.
“Being able to work with Trisha Yearwood, her team and one of the longest-running collections in our industry is a true honor,” Pelcher added. “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.”
Yearwood said that she also is pleased to be partnering with Legacy Classic |Modern.
“I am excited to see the Trisha Yearwood Home Collection continue with Chris Pelcher and the team at Legacy Classic | Modern Furniture,” said Yearwood. “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.”
