Chelsea House to Feature Licensed Designs by Kristi Nelson

Ahead of the Spring High Point Market, lamp and lighting manufacturer Chelsea House has announced the launch of an exclusive collection by Los Angeles-based designer Kristi Nelson, principal of KMNelson Design, LLC. The series will encompass furniture, lighting, accessories, and mirrors inspired by the diverse periods and places that have influenced her eye, tastes, and lifestyle philosophy. 

Select pieces will be on display in the Chelsea House showroom at 200 Hamilton Street in High Point from Thursday, March 31 (pre-market) through April 6. The launch reception will be held on Sunday, April 3, from 4pm-7pm.

“We are so excited to have Kristi as a part of our team,” said Pam Cain, President of Chelsea House. “Her designs exude an effortless luxury and a sense of joy and grace, much like Kristi herself. We’re excited to have the launch at the spring High Point market and look forward to having Kristi’s designs for years to come.”

The luxe, laid-back collection is perfectly suited to today’s style-blending interiors featuring four globally influenced design themes: Contemporary Neoclassical, Art Déco Influences, Grotto, and Nature’s Inspiration.

Contemporary Neoclassical conjures visions of Paris, Rome, and Manhattan; Art Déco Influences is a nod to Nelson’s favorite London hotels; Grotto is a mini homage to the fantastical grottoes of Tuscan gardens; and Nature’s Inspiration is informed by the Blue Ridge mountains and the Los Angeles lifestyle, evidenced through contemporary, organic forms, and textured finishes.

“I’m thrilled that my first licensing deal is with Chelsea House! As a brand, they have a very focused point-of-view that puts a fresh spin on classic and contemporary décor,” Nelson states. “It’s crisp, fun, fashion-forward, yet sophisticated. As a company, Chelsea House values relationships, which I have experienced firsthand and greatly appreciate.”

Having lived and traveled in Europe, Nelson has a great appreciation for the way Europeans honor historic architecture, art, and antiques, yet are always looking forward in their design. “That mix of contrasts just speaks to me,” she said. Her philosophy on style is that it’s more interesting when it mixes contrasts like sleek with organic, old with new, soft with edgy, to make a uniquely personal statement.
