Donna Karan Uses Bali Style to Make People Feel at Home

World Famous Designer Donna Karan Launches Bali Furniture Line.


(6/21/2010)

Internationally famous fashion designer and frequent visitor to Bali, Donna Karan, and creator of the famous DKNY brand, has launched a furniture line in support of cultural preservation in Bali.

Karan's philanthropic Urban Zen Foundation seeks to combine the best of commerce and philanthropy. In explaining the inspiration for the new furniture line, Karan says, "It is philanthropy and commerce basically with a cultural point of view. Our three main missions are health care, education and preservation of culture. I think that the Balinese model to me is the absolutely appropriate model to launch because that is what Urban Zen is all about. It is about creating a community of creativity that also produces product so that they don't leave their culture."

The furniture line was launched from Karan's 711 Greenwich Street, New York store, located next door to her NYC Urban Zen retail location at 705 Greenwich Street. The shop is also the locale for Karan's famous annual catwalk show held during New York's Fashion Week.

Quoted at hamptons.com, Karan described the line: "It is all made in Bali and it was designed as a personal project that I have had for myself and my home. Everyone who came to my home in the Hamptons kept saying, 'I want your furniture.' So I said, 'Okay, we can make this happen.' Now we are launching a furniture collection that can be purchased by anyone. It is made to order with individual finishes, you can have them in an ebony color or bleached or natural for example. They are all teak, all handmade and one of a kind, made to measure."

Sold from Karan's retail locations and on line the new Bali line is a limited supply item. In the world of the designer: "I have a limited amount of stock that I will hold through the summer. Then it is about three months." I noted that the furniture had clean, strong and minimalist design features to them, "My whole idea is that if you can't sleep in it, if you can't live in it and have fun in it, why have it?"
