Some new furniture will help Elvis fans dream of the king. Vaughan-Bassett has developed two lines of bedroom furniture it's calling the ``Graceland'' and ``Elvis Presley's Hollywood.''
Company officials insist that no green shag or red velvet will be used.
But some of the furniture ranges from refined to downright osten-tatious.
Two of the signature pieces are the ``Love Me Tender'' bed and the ``Burning Love'' heart-shaped mirror.
Vaughan-Bassett thinks it can capitalize on the late Presley's phenomenal marketing power, and has signed a licensing deal with Elvis Presley Enterprises.
