Terry Crews for Bernhardt... Wait, What?

 

At the ICFF show last week, we did a double-take when we spotted this:

Yes, it’s that Terry Crews (or Terry Jeffords, to fellow Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans). Apparently, in addition to being a prolific actor, author, and former NFL player, Crews is also a luxury furniture designer.

It’s true we’ve seen our share of interesting celebrity furniture lines and collaborations over the years, including those of Ellen DeGeneres, Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon, and Gwyneth Paltrow. But this is Bernhardt, you guys, and the Brookyn Nine-Nine viewership is arguably not their target demographic. We figured name recognition alone couldn’t be the whole story.

lt turns out that Crews has an arts education background, and design has been a longtime passion for him. Who knew? Read all about it and more details regarding the line and its debut in this excellent Housetipster report.
