Let’s be real: Every “Fixer Upper” fan dreams of moving to Waco, Texas, to live in one of Joanna Gaines’ flawlessly furnished homes. But since Waco isn’t big enough for the lot of them, Gaines is bringing her designs to the masses.
Gaines, who co-hosts HGTV’s popular series “Fixer Upper” with her husband Chip, is currently debuting her newest Magnolia home collections at North Carolina’s High Point Market, which holds the distinction of being the largest home furnishings trade show in the world.
Among her upcoming offerings, Gaines’ showrooms contain all new lighting concepts, furnishings, wall hangings, seating, rugs, and lots and lots of oversized clocks — many of which will be available this summer on MagnoliaMarket.com or at retailers such as Bed Bath & Beyond or Pier 1 Imports, reports Country Living.
Gaines also explained on Instagram how she's switching things up for her spring line.
“I wanted to offer a blend of styles to pair with my furniture line at this year's spring market,” she wrote in a post featuring photos of thick wooden furnishings, modern metallic seating and a country-inspired kitchen island.
“I wanted to make sure things didn't feel so matchy matchy,” she elaborated, explaining that she’s been planning this particular collection for two years. “The art of design is in telling your own story and there's no rule that says you can't blend styles that you love.”
Country Living also says Gaines enlisted a team of 30 people to help prepare her showroom over the last two weeks — not really a surprise, considering how high the stakes are.
“This is for retailers to come and preview the collection, so they can decide what they want to put in stores,” explained Gaines in an Instagram video.
“So hopefully you’ll see a lot of the Magnolia home collections in a store in a town near you.”
Gaines’ collections will be on display at the North Point Market continues in North Point, N.C., through April 26.
