Alexandra Kay’s “favorites” from ARDEN cushions include the following patterns: Coastal Green Leaf, Navy Palm, and Sage Green Tenley. The calming color palette nods to her finding solace in the outdoors, crediting her parent’s porch as the place where she wrote a lot of her new music.

“It’s been a significant year of growth for me, and I’ve loved working with ARDEN to spotlight some of my favorite patterns from their line,” said Alexandra Kay. “I’m hoping that this partnership offers comfort to those who find peace outdoors like I do. A little style can go a long way in making you feel better.”

The fade-resistant textiles are also eco-friendly, featuring ARDEN’s new ultra-soft earthFIBER material. The plant-based fabric is a blend of bamboo viscose and polyester. The cushions are generously filled with partially recycled fiber and made to resist stains and water with PFAS Free treatments.

“We have always had a passion for outdoor decor that you can feel good about, and we’ve worked hard to ensure sustainability is a key pillar in our cushion collections,” said Carrie Belcher, Director of Marketing for ARDEN Companies. “It’s been a delight working with Alexandra so far, and we’re thrilled to continue our partnership with her in the future.”

Kay initially rose to fame on social media, garnering over 6 million followers and 170+ million streams on Apple Music and Spotify. Kay has collaborated with industry titans like Tim McGraw, Jo Dee Messina, Randy Travis and more. In 2023, her debut album spent multiple weeks on the Country iTunes charts, and she sold over 50,000 tickets to headlining shows. 2024 is shaping up to be an even bigger year for Alexandra, with multiple main-stage performances and headliner run on Jelly Roll’s “Beautifully Broken Tour” beginning this fall.

About Alexandra Kay

Alexandra Kay kindles a profound connection with listeners through her heartfelt melodies, evocative storytelling, and beautifully captivating voice. Born and raised in Waterloo, Illinois, Alexandra found her voice as a teen, using songwriting as a vessel for self-expression and self-discovery. After two failed major record deals, and a starring role in a Netflix Original series, Alexandra took it upon herself to build the music career she envisioned. Since then, she's been cementing her status as an independent force in the industry by sharing her music and life online, amassing over 6+ million followers on social media which has led to 300+ million streams between Apple and Spotify alone. AK (as her fans call her) has graced the stage and collaborated with industry titans like Tim McGraw, Tracy Lawrence, Jo Dee Messina, Jelly Roll, Randy Travis, Gary LeVox and more. In October of 2023 Alexandra dropped her debut album “All I’ve Ever Known.” The independently released project spent multiple weeks in the number one spot on the iTunes country charts, debuted at number one on iTunes All Genre and in the top ten on multiple Billboard Charts. The heart-wrenching ballad “Everleave” from her debut project has gained tens of millions of views on social media and is currently in rotation on Sirius XM’s The Highway. With what has been described as a “Taylor Swift-esque” fan base, AK sold over 50,000 tickets to her headline shows in 2023 alone. 2024 is gearing up to be her biggest year yet with multiple main stage performances at the largest festivals in country music, multiple headline runs and the inception of her sophomore album. @alexandrakaymusic
