PITTSFIELD, Mass.-The Annie Selke Companies has collaborated with interior design icon and best-selling author Bunny Williams to offer new collections with Annie Selke's Dash & Albert Rug Company and Pine Cone Hill brands, which will debut in January at the Atlanta Gift & Home Furnishings Market.

Available for purchase in February 2014, the Bunny Williams for Dash & Albert Rug Company collection consists of 36 outdoor-friendly designs, as well as unusual natural jute weaves appropriate for use indoors or on covered porches. Bunny Williams for Pine Cone Hill is a collection of pillows and throws inspired by Williams's extensive travels and feature a variety of her favorite patterns, colors and textures.

"I have always been a huge fan of Bunny and her work," said Selke, founder and CEO of Dash & Albert and Pine Cone Hill. "Classic, charismatic and beautifully balanced, Bunny's approach to decorating marries comfort and practicality with style and functionality. She is a genius colorist and has a sensational eye for proportion and a wonderful attention to detail rarely found nowadays."

Williams was also excited about the opportunity to branch out with Pine Cone Hill and Dash & Albert. "My job as a designer is to help make smart choices when a house is being furnished," she said. "Clients want homes they can really live in and interiors that fit their lifestyles. Today there are so many great, affordable ways to decorate and make rooms both attractive and practical, like Dash & Albert's stain-proof rugs. The quality level of Dash & Albert and Pine Cone Hill is extraordinary. When Annie asked me to collaborate with her, I jumped at the chance."

Selke added, "Bunny and I are both a bit dog crazy, so it's only appropriate that the rugs designed by Williams are, like the rest of the Dash & Albert indoor/outdoor collection, pet-friendly and functional."
