Journalist and author Joan Lunden plans to design a line of bedding inspired by her summers in the Hamptons.
On Wednesday, she will launch the new Joan Lunden Home line at 11 a.m. EST on QVC. The comforters, coverlets, sheets, throws and pillows feature designs inspired by New York City (seen here), Stockholm, Kenya and Paris.
The Hamptons design is at least a year away, says Lunden, who has rented homes in Amagansett, Sagaponack, Bridgehampton, Water Mill and Quogue. “I never had a summer where I didn’t love my place out there,” says the former co-host of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” adding that her and one of her daughter’s love of horses and riding drew them back eight summers in a row.
In fact, it was in the Hamptons where she met her second husband, Jeff Konigsberg. She says they caught each other’s eye at a deli when he came over to her and said, “I was invited to your house for a party and I couldn’t come, but I’d still like to take you out for dinner.”
This summer, Lunden will be back in the Hamptons but only to visit friends.
The new bedding line will range in price between $45 and $155.
