Crate & Barrel Debuts Lawson-Fenning, Ford Designs

By

In a double designer debut, Crate & Barrel has introduced a new collection of home furnishings and tabletop merchandise slated for its CB2 stores and an extension of its Leanne Ford line under its namesake banner.

Crate & Barrel developed the CB2 collection in partnership with Los Angeles-based design brand Lawson-Fenning. The collection draws on California style and the Golden State’s wealth of natural materials. Designers Glenn Lawson and Grant Fenning crafted versatile pieces that invite fluidity between indoor and outdoor living, Crate and Barrel stated. Each piece in the collection, including office, bedding, lighting, tabletop and decor, as well as the outdoor contribution, is pared down to its base elements, exposing joinery, highlighting finishes and allowing the simplicity of materials and pure craftsmanship to make a statement, the retailer added. 

The collection features, among other elements, luxury dining and serveware including the Half Moon dining chair and counter stools, and Sojourn Oat dinnerware.

“Lawson-Fenning designs are a perfect blend of California modernism, design heritage and artisanal craft,” said Ryan Turf, president of CB2, in introducing the collection. “It’s an ethos we’re excited to bring into our brand and, with it, continue to evolve. The collaboration features beautiful, functional pieces that spotlight materials and craftsmanship. And like the full breadth of our assortment, they’re designed to stand the test of time.”

The collection is exclusive to cb2.com, with products ranging in price from $7.95 to $3,999.

In the meantime, Crate & Barrel and Crate & Kids latest joint collection with designer Leanne Ford includes 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 drew inspiration from the increased time spent at home in recent years and the importance of flexible yet beautiful living spaces across the household, Crate & Barrel noted. Thoughtful design evident in the collection embraces the need for multifunctional furniture and decor including home office items that live cohesively in any room as well as tabletop, entertaining pieces, pillows and planters that help extend the beauty of indoor space into the outdoors for day-to-day living and entertaining.

The Leanne Ford for Crate & Kids Collection brings kid-friendly design to the playroom, nursery and kid’s bedroom spaces, Crate & Barrel maintained, with whimsical and functional design in art and lighting 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 vp of product, Sebastian Brauer, in debuting the new Leanne Ford items. “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.”

The Crate & Barrel merchandise ranges in price from $10.95 to $2,799 while the new Leanne Ford for Crate & Kids items range in price from $10 to $1,698. Shoppers can find both groups in-store and at crateandbarrel.com.
