The Design Network has teamed up with Emmy-winning television star, celebrity stylist, designer, and best-selling author Carson Kressley to launch the first-ever talk show about all things interior design, Couched, on Thursday, January 9, 2020.
The series’ guest-list is a who’s-who of the design-industry’s most-loved stars, including Love it or List It’s Hilary Farr, celebrity designer and Kressley’s former Queer Eye For the Straight Guy co-star Thom Filicia, and designer-to-the-Kardashians Martyn Lawrence Bullard. The show format is a mix of dishy interviews, game show-inspired contests, and insider advice.
“We’re incredibly excited about the first season of Couched,” said Jason Harris, founder of The Design Network. “Our guest list is truly remarkable, and each one brings the perfect mix of entertainment and information to the couch. And of course, with Carson Kressley hosting, there is literally never a dull moment!”
Kressley, who partnered with The Design Network on a 2017 mini-series called Dressing Rooms, says “I love to talk and I love design! So when The Design Network asked me to host a design talk show for them, I jumped at the chance. It’s so fun getting to talk design with my design crushes and celebrity friends!”
Couched was taped in front of a live studio audience at Furnitureland South, the world’s largest furniture store, in High Point, North Carolina. It was filmed during High Point Market, the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world.
