Lenny Kravitz launches 70’s inspired furniture collection
Created in collaboration with Chicago company CB2, Lenny Kravitz furniture design collection features 20 pieces lamps, wall decorations, rugs, pillows and furniture.
Lenny Kravitz has become the latest celebrity to move into furniture design, joining the likes of Brad Pitt, Pharrell Williams and Vanilla Ice with a range of products and lighting that includes a table topped with a sheepskin pillow.

The CB2 x Kravitz Design by Lenny Kravitz range takes references from the “sleek glam of the 1970s New York club culture and the natural ease of the California music scene of the 1970s,” according to a statement.
“Our goal was to create a collection of pieces based on my personal style and the things that have inspired me throughout my travels,” said Kravitz, who is better known for his work as a musician and has more recently starting building a career as an actor in films like The Hunger Games.

His company, Kravitz Design, was set up in 2003 and has completed the interiors for the SLS Hotel South Beach, Miami. “Lenny is a weapon of massive construction,” reads a quote from French designer Philippe Starck on the SLS website. “He is an exlposion of all talents, an unlimited boiling bucket of culture, a daily firework, a tireless explorer.”
Kravitz Design’s first furniture collection will be available to purchase from 1 October 2015. Customers who can’t wait until then will be able pre-order items on 15-16 September. “This collection will appeal to a diverse group of people and we look forward to using them in future Kravitz Design projects, as well as my houses in Bahamas and Brazil,” Kravitz said.
“The development of this collection was a truly collaborative design process,” said Ryan Turf, managing director for CB2. “Lenny Kravitz and the Kravitz Design team’s sophisticated perspective helped create a collection that is both beautiful and practical, earthy and elegant, and a great complement to our CB2 aesthetic.”
Kravitz is among a long list of celebrities that have tried their hand at design. Earlier this year, Antonio Banderas announced that he will be studying fashion design at Central Saint Martins, while Kanye West has launched a collection of clothing and footwear for Adidas.
