Diane Keaton’s First-Ever Decor Line Is Unmistakably Hers
The palette is a dead giveaway.

Actress, author, and Instagram must-follow Diane Keaton can add one more job title to her ever-growing résumé: lampshade designer. The Oscar winner is debuting her first-ever decor collection, a series of linen lampshades with Aidan Gray Home, at the High Point Market furniture trade show in High Point, North Carolina, this weekend. There’s no mistaking the industrial-chic lighting for anyone else’s because in true Keaton form, the entire line is—what else?—black and white.
The Annie Hall star began teasing the launch on Instagram back in August under the name Keaton Industries, but starting October 19, High Point attendees can experience the fixtures IRL for the first time. From the looks of Aidan Gray’s Instagram Stories, the actress’s booth is nearly complete, and snapshots of the space reveal shades grouped together according to the pattern: stripes, Swiss cross, plaid, marble, polka dot, and houndstooth. Emblazoned on one of the walls is a quote from Keaton that explains her classic palette choice: “Why black and white? Because color can be too demanding.”
On their own, the linen shades skew preppy, but naturally Keaton found a way to quirk-ify the prints by suspending the fixtures with long rope cords and heavy chains. In addition to the edgy hardware, she experimented with hanging three oversize pendants in a row for a dramatic statement.
If you can’t make it to the small North Carolina town this weekend, never fear: You can start shopping the entire collection on Aidan Gray’s site today. Prices range from $330 for the smaller tapered pendants to $1,045 for the barrel shades. Though you might have trouble choosing a favorite pattern, keep in mind that color-coordinating is a whole lot simpler when you only have two choices.
