Drawing inspiration for her debut home entertaining collection from the places she has discovered during her global travels, products in the line showcase Thomas’s appreciation for versatility and functionality.
“To see my very favorite pieces brought to life is a dream come true; I can’t wait to see how customers use these versatile, classic items in their homes, and I hope they have as much joy sharing them with their friends as I have with mine,” Thomas said.
The relationship between the actress and philanthropist and Williams-Sonoma, Inc., is a long-standing one thanks to the retailer’s continued support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which was founded by Thomas’s father, Danny.
“Our relationship evolved into a product partnership once our team observed that Marlo’s passion for entertaining paralleled her love of philanthropy,” said Ryan Ross, president of Williams Sonoma. “Marlo’s approach to entertaining and decorating her home is timeless which made this collaboration perfect for both the Williams Sonoma and the Pottery Barn brands.”
