Rapper and DIY Network host Vanilla Ice has further expanded his lighting line to include eight new pieces, bringing the collection to a total of 14 exclusive chandeliers, sconces and wall mounts.
Vanilla Ice is continuing his exclusive relationship with Capitol Lighting , the award-winning 88-year old lighting company, by working with the lighting experts to bring more traditional pieces to the line that can fit the décor of homes throughout the world.
The Bliss Collection includes eight pieces ranging from single-tier chandeliers, ceiling pendants, bathroom lighting and wall scones, all with a traditional style. The pieces are assembled in the U.S. under the company Batalion Imports and are available for purchase at all eight Capitol Lighting showroom locations in New Jersey and South Florida, as well as online at VanillaIceLighting.com .
“Working with the Capitol Lighting team to create the fixtures and launch the collection was so exciting and really let me explore my passion for design,” said Rob Van Winkle, aka Vanilla Ice. “It was a natural fit to create a second collection for the lighting line with a similar but different style. We want to create a line of fixtures with something for everyone’s home.”
Vanilla Ice and Capitol Lighting have worked together on partnerships including the Making Lives Brighter campaign where the rapper/designer was the spokesperson and filmed a PSA to bring awareness to Habitat for Humanity. The original lighting line launched in October 2012.
“We are thrilled with the additions to the Vanilla Ice Lighting Line and look forward to collaborating on additional pieces later this year,” says Eric Lebersfeld, President of Capitol Lighting.
