Crate and Barrel launches fresh collection with Leanne Ford and introduces furnishing made with mixed materials. Partnering with the renowned designer Leanne Ford, Crate and Barrel now offers an assortment of furniture made with mixed materials that feature distinctly modern silhouettes.
Ford, a native of Pittsburgh, currently stars in Restored by the Fords, along with her brother and contractor Steve Ford. The show airs on HGTV and follows the siblings as they turn some of Pittsburgh’s most dated buildings into magazine-worthy homes. “We have always been such fans of Leanne’s design work, as she’s helping redefine American interior style with her artful and design-forward vibe,” said Sebastian Brauer, Crate and Barrel vice president of product design and development. “Our shared passion for design and shared admiration for each other’s work allowed us to create a timeless, yet versatile collection.”
Brauer said the collection combines Ford’s relaxed, effortless aesthetic, with the approachability, quality and craftsmanship that exemplify Crate and Barrel. “From day one, working with Crate and Barrel felt like a natural fit,” said Ford. “Working together to create this collection, a fresh, modern take on classic materials and shapes, has been a shared labor of love … knowing these pieces will be around for years to come.”
Ford said she wants the pieces to look strong and weighty, while still feeling effortless. The collection can be found online and in-store and includes dining tables, chairs, storage and bar cabinets, dressers, nightstands, ottomans and sofas. Pricing runs from $300 for a side table to $2,300 for a slipcovered sofa.
