Lionel Richie has launched an interiors collection that he sees as an “extension” of his songwriting.
The ‘Hello’ hitmaker has teamed up with retailer JCPenney for an “eclectic design experience” that he views as an “extension” of his songwriting career which showcases his “love of life”.
He said: “My home collection isn’t one particular style, but an eclectic design experience offering that connects my joy and love of life. Home is an extension of songwriting for me.”
The 69-year-old singer’s new range includes bedsheets, throw pillows, coverlet and comforter sets in a range of colours from black, navy and tan to gold or baby blue, as well as six-piece towels sets in all white, white and grey, white and blue, or white and tan.
And when he was creating the collection, Lionel – who has three children from his two previous marriages – wanted to produce pieces that helped make a home a sanctuary.
He said: “I have fun curating many décor style pieces to create my own unique personality.
“My tip it to try to experience life to the fullest, keep it simple, and create your own unique space at home.
“I travel so much. Home is my tranquility–my stay-cation–and through my passion for home design and experiences, I want to design a beautiful home space for you.”
Despite his new career direction, Lionel isn’t planning to quit music in favour of design as the ‘All Night Long’ hitmaker recently admitted he loves performing live and never wants to stop.
He previously said: “The tour hasn’t stopped. Once someone asked me how long is this tour gonna last, and I said, well I’ve been on tour since ’71.”
