Two years ago Rachael Ray started sketching furniture with functions that she wished were available to make life easier. So far, she has released three of her Rachael Ray Home collections, with reasons for each name (Soho, High Line, Upstate). All three of these collections are named after specific cities in her home state, New York.
Each collection pays homage to the ongoing style of each city. Rachael grew up in Lake George, a city located in Upstate New York, so her Upstate Collection celebrates the traditional aspects of furniture and home décor that is topped off with a distressed cherry finish. Furthermore, she lives in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, so her Soho Collection matches the unique style of this area. This collection includes “small scale, ash gray furniture with Mid-Century Modern overtones.” Last but not least, Ray’s High Line Collection is in honor of a sophisticated urban park in New York City, with a bar cabinet that can hold a wine fridge additionally.
The High Line Collection embraces sophisticated contemporary style with a lightly weathered finish. What makes this collection stand out is that it features oversized pieces and the ability to mix living pieces with bedroom pieces. Construction includes rubberwood solids, oak veneers, and nickel finish hardware.
Featured here is the High Line Nightstand. Ray explains that in her sketches she wanted a nightstand that had hidden outlets for charging. She made this dream of hers come to life with a built-in USB port and electrical outlet for your convenience.
Both of the High Line Side Tables provide functionality for living room and bedroom ideas. They have the ability to be used as a nightstand in your bedroom or their traditional use as a side table in your living room.
The High Line Dresser is enhanced with deep drawers, one removable jewelry tray, two removable felt-lined trays, and the bottom one is cedar-lined. In addition, the High Line Chest has wide drawers, oversized handles, removable top felt-lined tray, and bottom cedar-lined interior.
The High Line Jewelry Chest has diverse characteristics, such as a lift top chest with mirror, removable felt-lined trays in all drawers, and hooks for convenient hanging. The multiple sized drawers give you the option of storing small simple earrings in the top drawers while adding more intricate jewelry pieces to the bigger drawers.
The High Line TV Stand highlights some of its best features, such as an electrical outlet, wood framed beveled glass doors, and media storage compartments. The TV Stand can be enhanced with two side pier units to create a wall unit. In addition, the pier units can be sold separately for use in any room. The pier units have push through drawers that are fully finished on both sides, allowing you to use this piece however you want, such as a room divider or storage unit. In addition, the pier unit includes a 3-way touch dimmer and thick glass shelves that can be adjusted.
In this lifestyle, you can see the High Line Queen Platform Bed. The headboard is upholstered in padded polyester, which is easy to clean and soft to the touch.
The Soho Collection focuses on glamorous style from the 1950’s that includes Mid-Century Modern accents. Some highlights of this collection include traditional wood material, solid pieces, and gold finish hardware. Construction includes linden tech veneers, rubberwood solids, and metal.
The Soho Dresser includes one removable jewelry tray, bottom cedar-lined drawer, and a removable felt-lined tray in the top drawer. In addition, the Soho Chest is complemented by its soft-closing drawers, removable felt-lined tray in top drawer, and a bottom cedar-lined drawer.
The Soho Nightstand targets functionality, such as its built-in USB port, electrical outlet, and soft-closing drawers.
Seen here is the SoHo Vanity w/Mirror, with distinct features such as two built-in USB ports, two electrical outlets, and one removable jewelry tray for your luxury. In addition, the mirror is complete with beveled edge and adjustable side mirrors for various angles.
In the picture below, you can see the SoHo King Platform Bed, which is highlighted by its simple elegant style with an oversized wooden headboard and angled legs.
