Furniture launch marks an exciting next step for this joyful husband-and-wife brand
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Calling all Creative Weirdos! Mr. Kate is thrilled to announce the launch of its first-ever furniture line.

The brand’s wildly popular YouTube Channel boasts four million subscribers with 500+ million total video views and is the top interior design channel on the platform.
Exactly 10 years after its debut as a lifestyle/DIY blog, Mr. Kate (repped by A3 Artists Agency) is celebrating its newest venture — a furniture line designed with leading manufacturer, Dorel Home, the home furnishings division of Dorel Industries Inc., (TSX: DII.B; DII.A), to help dwellers unleash their inner ‘Creative Weirdos’ and add a splash (or two…or three) of color at a mainstream price.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Mr. Kate on the launch of its inaugural furniture line,” said Claudia Grundman, Senior Brand Director of Dorel Home. “Kate and Joey embody the joy of interior design and it’s been a thrill to work with them on bringing their unique and versatile pieces to life.”
The initial collection features metal and upholstered beds, accent chairs, futons, and sofa-sectionals for anyone, from design enthusiasts to DIY novices, who are looking to brighten their home and channel new energy into their living space.
“This furniture line is an expression of who we are as designers and a true representation of our ‘Because, Why Not?’ philosophy to embrace your creative freedom and not overthink it too much,” said Kate Albrecht, Designer, Author and Founder of Mr. Kate. “No matter your style or space, our collection is designed to make you feel authentically at home.”
Mr. Kate furniture is being carried by top e-commerce retailers, including Wayfair, Walmart, Amazon, Overstock and more coming soon. All Mr. Kate products are designed with the brand’s core principle at heart: providing the necessary tools to create unique, multifunctional, and stylish surroundings.
The Mr. Kate furniture line includes a range of functional pieces and decorative accents to suit any design aesthetic, from minimalist to mid-century modern. Its pieces are available in luxurious fabrics such as linen and velvet and come in a variety of colorways, including gray, blush, mustard, tan, green, and teal. The affordable price range runs from $229.99 to $629.99 USD.
