Actor Terry Crews to present his furniture collection at Chicago trade show – Chicago Tribune

The plans NFL-player-turned-actor Terry Crews has made for his Chicago visit may surprise some of his fans. Sure, he’ll dine out — he said the city has the “best food in the world” — and spend time with his wife Rebecca’s family in Gary.

Also on tap: Presenting the new furniture collection he designed at NeoCon, the annual commercial interiors show that starts Monday at the Merchandise Mart.

“This will be my first NeoCon. I’m really, really honored to just be coming there with a collection,” Crews told the Tribune by phone. “I’ve heard so much about it. In fact, the president of Bernhardt (Design), Jerry Helling, told me that NeoCon is the big deal.”

Inspired by ancient Egyptian culture, the line for Bernhardt Design represents Crews’ return to his art roots. The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star attended Western Michigan University on an art scholarship, and had a career as an NFL journeyman.
