Who knew Lenny Kravitz was an interior designer?!

Well, I did, but I’m also a shelter junkie. But for those of you who didn’t know, Lenny Kravitz has his own design firm and has even produced furniture for brands like Kartell. But the rock star’s latest collaboration is music to our ears.

According to our friends at Entertainment Weekly, Lenny Kravitz and his design team, Kravitz Design Inc., have created the stage and sets for Queen Latifah‘s new talk show.

“It’s a thrill to be designing the set for The Queen Latifah Show,” Kravitz told EW. “This is the first time Kravitz Design has created an environment for television, which makes it a very exciting project for us.”

So where will the rocker turned designer pull inspiration from?

“The set reflects Latifah’s personality and spirit and will be an inviting, comfortable space for her guests, studio audience and viewers,” said Kravitz. As the son of actress Roxie Roker (of The Jeffersons fame) Lenny knows his way around a set, but he admits that he couldn’t dream this big. “I never thought of designing for television but, I suppose growing up in a TV studio watching my mother has come full circle.”

Queen is just as thrilled by the collabo. “Lenny is not only an incredible musician but an incredible designer, and I almost can’t believe he is designing the set for my show,” she said. “I can’t wait for people to see it.”

Word has it that the set will include “bold architectural features” and “an elegant mix of materials including refined metal screens, warm woods, and organic marbles.”

We can’t wait to see it when Queen’s talk show, executive produced by Jada Pinkett Smith, debuts on September 16.
