Following the success of Crate and Barrel’s collaboration with Leanne Ford this past spring, the two announced an expansion into new categories including tabletop.
The Leanne Ford for Crate and Barrel Fall Collection ventures into the entertaining space with tabletop items inspired by travel and adventure, featuring a mix of dinnerware, serving pieces and table linens in shades of black, white and cream.
Inspired by a trip to Portugal, the collection was created to feel curated and collected rather than designed. As people look to make time spent at home more special this fall, these multi-functional pieces of “living art” infuse Leanne’s laid back approach to living, cooking and entertaining and can enhance any occasion, whether it’s hosting an intimate dinner party or gathering with family for nightly dinner.
“Working with talented teams that can turn your vision into a reality is a dream for any designer, so I was thrilled for the opportunity to design my first tabletop collections with Crate and Barrel,” said Ford. “As a new mom and lover of travel and adventure, I set out to make functional and thoughtful products that will look beautiful for years to come.”
“Leanne’s Spring debut resonated incredibly well with our customers, and as collaborations continue to be a key differentiator for our business, we knew we wanted to build upon our success,” said Suzy Cirulis, Crate and Barrel’s chief marketing officer. “The expanded collection with products perfect for kitchen and dining comes at a time when we see our customers spending more time at home and looking for functional yet beautiful pieces.”
The collections are currently available online at crateandbarrel.com and crateandbarrel.ca and in stores across the U.S. and Canada.
Ford traveled to Portugal with the Crate and Barrel team to source inspiration and learn about techniques and design options to make every item feel special and collected.
In her signature neutral color palette, she designed these multi-purpose items to be used as “living art” whether the pitcher is filled with flowers on a shelf or used for water during a dinner party. Standout items include the Pour Me Extra Large Mixing Bowl with Handle, Stevey Black Pitcher, Brekkie Mug and the Range Large Serve Bowl.
The Leanne Ford for Crate and Barrel Fall Collection features 28 items including ceramic dinnerware and serving pieces from Portugal, glassware from Turkey and linens from India, with prices ranging from $7.95 to $129.95.
