A Night with Lionel Richie
Celebrating the Los Angeles launch of Lionel Richie Home Collection with a stylish cocktail party at GEARYS Beverly Hills.
Where is there to go when you are the famous Lionel Richie with a line of Grammy’s, a handful of multi-platinum hits and an Oscar win? To home décor, of course. Something only Lionel Richie could do with his timeless flare and brilliant personality.
The magic of Lionel Richie was with GEARYS as he helped us unveil and welcome his Lionel Richie Home Collection to our store, and the Los Angeles area. An intimate gathering with the legend made for a fantastic evening dedicated to him and his stunning Home Collection. Storefront windows, side-by-side fixtures and a central focal point proudly displayed the classic artistic touch of the Lionel Richie Home Collection. Complete with traditional, classy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Tabletop décor and accessories were showcased in various areas with flowers drawing the eye to the already eye-catching items. It was a spectacular evening and a wonderful way to welcome the collection to the Los Angeles area.
"When I wrote 'All Night Long', [it] was a calypso in the middle of rock & roll, or 'Three Times A Lady' that came out in the middle of disco. Is it expected? Absolutely not! Lionel Richie Home line...is it expected? Absolutely not! It was just one of those things that, it was not believable until we did it. I love architecture. I love home. I love entertaining. I love people. And I spend most of my time trying to find the perfect setting... Whatever the big event is in your life, GEARYS has the top of the line. What this represents for me is that they’ve always been…the tastemakers. When it’s in that store, you know this is it.”
Lionel Richie's Home Collection is a home entertainment line that embodies the iconic singer in every way. Inspired by his southern roots growing up on the Tuskegee campus in Alabama, passion for art and world travels, the collection is a delightful addition sure to captivate and delight all audiences. Like is music, Richie set out to create pieces that would be timeless—designed with “the thread of forever”—and cherished for generations to come. His world travels with The Commodores truly created his passion for design as he roamed from country to country and viewed different design aesthetics worldwide. These designs influenced each piece, including a bone china collection with 6 motifs for different countries.
Bold patterns mix effortlessly with classic colors and clean lines. Each piece makes a statement and when paired with many items from the collection, creates a standout focal piece that every home should have. From delicate bone china to crystal and wonderful frames, there is something for every room in the house. Patterns vary from geometric lines to fanciful scallops and beyond. As a lover of luxury, Richie wanted his collection to sparkle with it.
We at GEARYS were honored to spend time with such an artistic legend and share his new collection with the area. As you can see from the photos, we had a wonderful evening. For more of Lionel Richie Home, visit our flagship store or preview his collection on our website.
