Kathy Peterson, CedarStore.com Team Up to Introduce Kathy Peterson Inspired – Outdoor Lifestyles
(Gibsonia, PA, May 26, 2010) – Television Celebrity, Designer and Master Gardener, Kathy Peterson and CedarStore.com announce the launch of introductory pieces in a signature outdoor furnishings line packed with color and American craftsmanship.
Capitalizing on a passion for outdoor living and design, Kathy Peterson Inspired – Outdoor Lifestyles will debut beginning in June of 2010 and be available exclusively from CedarStore.com.
“CedarStore.com is proud of our latest collaboration,” said Tim McTighe, founder and owner of CedarStore.com. “Kathy Peterson is one of America’s leading experts on outdoor decorating. She has been in the forefront of the outdoor living concept and has inspired homeowners to be creative with their outdoor spaces through her books and her television work and now with this line of outdoor furniture.”
As the author of five decorating books, Kathy Peterson has shared her expertise daily for ten years on her national television show, Town & Country Crafts with Kathy Peterson and currently serves as a lifestyle correspondent on The Balancing Act on Lifetime. Television and magazines alike value her advice as she is a regular featured designer on HGTV, The DIY Network, The Discovery Channel, E! and PBS as well as Woman’s Day and Better Homes & Gardens magazines.
“Designed with color in mind, all of the pieces in my line will come with extensive painting options made possible by the folks at CedarStore,” said Peterson. “This will allow consumers to create their own unique backyard paradise.” Utilizing eco- and child-friendly American-made paint, the craftsmen at CedarStore hand apply all finishes to pieces within this line.
The line will debut with 14 designs crafted of weather resistant natural cypress including traditional Adirondack, and Mission style chairs and accessories. Swings, garden benches, rockers, and accent tables also will bear the Kathy Peterson mark. The Mission furnishings will feature cushioning of fade and stain resistant SunbrellaR fabric. Peterson chose Cypress for her line based on the durability of the wood and its natural resistance to insects and decay. “I want to offer outdoor living furnishings that are built to last in the out-of-doors,” said Peterson. “With Cypress, our line is a perfect fit for residential or commercial usages.” To further enhance the durability of the product, stainless steel hardware is included to combat harsh exterior environments including saltwater.
Headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA., CedarStore.com is an American manufacturer with the benefit of an international marketing arm. Additional information with regard to the complete line of Kathy Peterson Inspired – Outdoor Lifestyles is available at CedarStore.com.
