SANTA MONICA, Calif. - Social commerce company BeachMint is partnering with Justin Timberlake and interior designer Estee Stanley to launch HomeMint, a curated selection of home goods and accessories, one of a kind finds, and art and photography from both established and up-and-coming artists.
"HomeMint combines my love of interior design with my passion for technology and innovation to create a brand that not only offers quality products, but also a personalized shopping experience," Timberlake said.
Stanley, whose celebrity client roster includes Timberlake, said the two have a great collaborative relationship. "For us, HomeMint is like designing our customers' homes together - we're sharing our creativity and expertise to create a collection for the home as I would for a client," she said. In an interview with Elle Decor, Timberlake and Stanley indicated the debut collection includes a substantial collaboration with Canvas, the N.Y.-based furniture, accessories and textiles company that, last week, launched an eight-piece home furnishings collection with fashion designer Jason Wu.
HomeMint shoppers will be able to purchase products at non-member pricing or pay a monthly membership fee of $9.99, which can be used as a credit towards any purchase. According to the site's Facebook page, HomeMint prices will range from $10 for accessories to $10,000 for unique objects and art. Members will also receive monthly personalized selections matched to their individual tastes, along with design how-tos and celebrity home tips. The site is offering "early access" now to members who sign in with their Facebook accounts.
