The new pieces celebrate classic handmade craftsmanship, reflecting the brands heritage and touching on global and historic references, the retailer said. Standout designs include the SoMa Sofa Collection ($699-$1,759), the new upholstery assortment designed for smaller spaces and flexible use featuring cushions that lift for additional storage access; the mango wood Alice Gateleg Table ($399) with extendable leafs and built-in shelving that creates an at-home bistro vibe; the Rainier Galvanized Cart ($99) that offers flexible, moveable storage; and the functional, distressed steel Modular Clothes Rack ($249) as a open-air alternative to closet storage.
The collection will be sold exclusively at 15 Pottery Barn flagship stores including New York City, the San Francisco Bay area, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Miami, Denver, Portland and San Diego. Many of the items, including select furniture pieces, are available to ship directly via UPS.
Meanwhile, sister brands PBteen and Pottery Barns Kids have forged partnerships with designers for new collections.
PBteen is working with teen artist and designer Isabella Rose Taylor on a collection that will launch in April and include bedding, decorative accessories and wall art. The line will feature exclusive sketches and paintings from Taylor in a feminine yet sophisticated and modern aesthetic.
Isabella Rose Taylor is a design and lifestyle brand founded in 2011. Taylor designs merchandise, art, clothes and home furnishings for girls looking to express their creativity and show their best selves. Taylor began sewing, painting and designing at a young age, Pottery Barn said, is the youngest designer to have a collection at Nordstrom and the youngest talent to ever present a clothing collection at New York Fashion Week. Isabella has been named by Fast Company as one of the “100 Most Creative People in Business,” and she has spoken at TEDX Hollywood and TEDXJanPath in India.
“We are so impressed by the talent and originality that Isabella brings to her work,” says Jennifer Kellor, executive vice president of merchandising, Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen. “Her entrepreneurial attitude and innovative outlook has allowed us to create a one-of-a-kind collection bringing her fresh take on the world of fashion and art into the homes of teens across the country.”
