The collection includes products for the whole home including an expansion of the high-design kids furniture line released in 2020.
CHICAGO, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Crate & Barrel and Crate & Kids latest joint collection with designer, Leanne Ford, brings together purposeful pieces that are significant to customers’ homes. The new collection offers items including office furniture, lighting and decor as well as outdoor tabletop, planters and pillows for Crate & Barrel and kids furniture, textiles, lighting and decor for Crate & Kids.
The Leanne Ford for Crate & Barrel Collection was inspired by the increased time spent at home in recent years and the importance of flexible yet beautiful living spaces throughout the whole home. The thoughtful high design of this collection embraces the need for multifunctional furniture and decor including home office items that live cohesively in any room. Meanwhile the outdoor collection, featuring tabletop and entertaining pieces as well a variety of pillows and planters, helps extend the beauty of home into the outdoors for day-to-day living and entertaining.
The Leanne Ford for Crate & Kids Collection brings the same kid-friendly elevated design to the playroom, nursery and kid’s bedroom spaces. The line is inspired by Leanne’s search for beautiful and design-forward pieces that could stand up to littles ones’ use. Whimsical design comes to life with the collection’s art and lighting, while form meets function with natural wood finishes on furniture and chic neutral décor.
“The way our customers live in their homes has shifted dramatically and they are seeking more intention, purpose and beauty throughout their spaces,” said Crate & Barrel’s Senior Vice President of Product, Sebastian Brauer. “For this collection with Leanne we were able to create and curate unique pieces that add layers, dimension and style to our existing flagship line, which will allow our customers to mix and match and create expressive, flexible and personal spaces.”
Along with these new items, favorites from Leanne’s previous collections with Crate & Barrel and Crate & Kids will continue to be available both in stores and online.
“Curation was the true vision behind this collection, bringing layered warmth and style through mixed materials and silhouettes to create an easy and joyful, well-loved home.” said Leanne Ford. “I designed these pieces to live happily with our previous collections, while being strong enough to stand alone. It’s always about meeting form and function- we created home office pieces that can add to any room, elevated shapes and sweet moments giving high design to your baby’s nursery, and our new elevated yet casual outdoor tabletop collection makes every day a dinner party kind of day.”
