Los Angeles, CA, United States (AHN) – Tiffani Thiessen has just launched a new line of children’s furniture with designer Lonni Paul. The former “Saved by the Bell” teen star talks about the new line, her acting career, and the new “90210.”
After trying to establish a company in the last five months, PetitNest was launched this October 10 to mark the symbolic 10-10-10 in Las Vegas. Tiffani said they started the line with the idea of doing a furniture range for kids that appeals to their aesthetic tastes.
She told TooFab, “I think, honestly, there have been different levels of excitement. First coming up with the ideas, then the next level was seeing the furniture in front of us thinking ‘Oh my gosh we drew that!'”
“Then to go to the show and have the response we’ve had. People getting excited about it makes us excited about it. It’s exciting, two women that have other jobs coming up with this idea.”
But it won’t end there. Tiffani and Lonni said they are already thinking of expanding the new line. They will be working on a playroom line for next year.
Meanwhile, Tiffany also shared about moving to New York half the year to film the USA series “White Collar.” Being a new mom (she gave birth to her daughter Harper with husband Brady smith in June), she said she is grateful that she now has time off to spend with her family.
“I live in NY half the year, from April to October. The transition is a lot. I went back to work 6.5 weeks after having the baby. It was a huge ordeal and I was overwhelmed a lot, but I’m glad to be back. I missed everybody.”
“I’m so fortunate to be a part of it. It’ll be nice to have some time off, spend with Harper.”
The former “Beverly Hills, 90210” bad girl also revealed that she doesn’t watch the show’s spin-off, “90210.”
She told TooFab, “I watched the pilot, and nothing against the show, I just don’t have time to watch TV. I haven’t watched TV since forever.”
