Diane Keaton Teams With Bed Bath & Beyond for Tableware


It’s not unusual for a young starlet to “extend his or her brand” with a line of perfume, or shoes, or jewelry. It seems these days fame is just a stepping stone into the design game. But it’s a little more unusual when an Actress with a Capital A, who has an Academy Award, decides at the age of 65 she, too, wants to be a designer. Yet that is exactly what Diane Keaton has done.

The Annie Hall actress is well known in L.A. not just for her silver screen roles but also as a prolific house flipper of pedigreed architecture. In the past few years, Keaton has owned and flipped homes by architects such as Ralph Flewelling in Beverly Hills, a Wallace Neff home in Bel-Air, and two Lloyd Wrights in Pacific Palisades and Los Feliz. She’s also the co-author of California Romantica which profiles Spanish Colonial and Mission-Style houses that had been restored (including one of her own). She’s also on the board of the Los Angeles Conservancy, and is a trustee of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. So she has plenty of preservation cred.

But this is her first foray as a designer. Keaton has teamed with Bed Bath & Beyond to launch  K by Keaton, a stoneware tabletop collection. Keaton tells the New York Times the pieces are inspired by her “latest obsession: the heartland.” Yet they also have a playful side, with typographic prints bearing the words “yum” and “bite.” The collection is available in select Bed Bath & Beyond stores and online, with prices starting at around $5 and going up to $60 for a 12-piece set.
