In the span of five years NC State Graduate Roxy Te Owens has gone from corporate fashion buyer, to lifestyle blogger, to launching her own furniture line Society Social. Her business management degree, personal motto to “live sparkly,” family support and encouragement, and lifelong experience in the showrooms of the High Point Market gave her the spring board to launch and succeed in this creative space. This past week, Roxy Te Owens, owner of Society Social, announced in a blog post that she and her brother, San San, could be shooting a potential television show in North Carolina. While Hollywood agency names are under wraps, it seems with a little luck and elbow grease, San San and Roxy could very well be in the midst of developing their own hit design show.The ‘he constructs and she designs’ isn’t a new concept to home television networks, although some may feature a married couple, a brother/sister show could very well be a success. Especially with Roxy’s infectious, bubbly personality and San San’s easy treatment on the eyes.Roxy grew up witnessing design firsthand, spending most of her time in her parents’ furniture factory and learning the earnest ‘blood, sweat and elbow grease’ motto behind creating pieces. Today, that dependable, unique, and affordable concept applies to her company Society Social. Owens launched her company in 2011 with six bar carts, and soon found herself and her designs featured in Southern Living, HGTV, and Huffington Post to name a few. Today, Society Social has evolved from bar carts to bright, colorfully chic pieces for every room in the home.In the blog post titled “Bringing it Back to NC, A Development Video for our Potential Show!” Roxy discusses helping longtime friends re-do their living room. They’ve already filmed one episode and there is another shoot slated to start in November. If picked up, you might even see some familiar faces as they’ve also enlisted the help of some local businesses.If the show finds a network to call home, the potential for a location in North Carolina is yet to be determined. Judging from the Vimeo clip Roxy put up along with the blog post, it seems they both definitely know what they’re doing – not only in terms of design and furniture, but in creating a lasting presence on television.
