Ellen DeGeneres Launching Design Reality Show

Ellen DeGeneres, the talk show host and producer is teaming with cable network HGTV to launch a furniture design competition series in 2015

During the series, the competitors will face design challenges that will keep them on their toes and, since the clock will be ticking, they will be paired with an expert carpenter to help them complete the task at hand in just 24 hours. The last one standing will take home a cash prize.

The series will highlight Ellen’s passion for furniture and house design as well as her expertise in the subject. In addition, there will be a six-part online companion series that will invite visitors to participate in another side of the competition and get to know the designers even better.

If you think the affable comedienne and talk show host seems like a strange benefactor, think again. Ellen is passionate about furniture and decorating, and has a particular penchant for 20th-century French furniture. The ranch she owns with Arrested Development star Portia de Rossi–a renovated horse facility which once belonged to My Man Godfrey and Thin Man star William Powell–is a testament to refined and sophisticated interior decorating. This woman has an eye for design.

“I’m so excited about this show because I love finding really special pieces of furniture,” DeGeneres said in a statement. “One time I found a beautiful one-of-a-kind armoire that spoke to me in a way I’d never experienced. It turned out there was a drifter living inside of it, but that’s a story for another time.”

    Like you mentioned, glass fencing is definitely more sophisticated looking and goes well with today’s modern trends. The glass also doesn’t obstruct light from coming into any area. It makes any room look more spacious with its translucent characteristics. Great article on embracing natural light in the home!
