Carey Spends Big On Furniture

Pop superstar MARIAH CAREY isn't letting the economic crunch wreck her spending sprees - she bought over $200,000 (£142,800) worth of chairs, sofas and furnishings during a four-hour shop at a trendy Melrose Avenue store on Thursday (19Feb09).
The singer and her entourage closed down Kreiss Showrooms so she could shop in peace with husband Nick Cannon and top interior designer Kenneth Bordewick, who is reportedly advising Carey on what to buy for her new Los Angeles home.
A source tells WENN that Carey bought a host of top items from the Kreiss Collection, including contemporary chairs and sofas from the company's Gatsby range.
And it seems the Hero singer is set on giving her new home a taste of old Hollywood, picking out stylish items in beige and taupe with dark wood frames in rosewood and mahogany.
One insider says, "It was like a raid - the shop was closed down and her huge minders stood guard at the door.
"Mariah clearly knew what she wanted, but took her time making sure she got the right matches and designs. She has terrific taste."
And the source insists Carey and Cannon made perfect shopping partners, adding, "They looked very much in love and she looked great."
Carey has made an inspired choice in her adviser too - Bordewick has revamped homes, nightclubs and restaurants all over the world.
He's the man behind the look of trendy Los Angeles hang-out The Abbey and he also oversaw the recent restoration of the Royal Palace in Venice, Italy.
