SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PBteen, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. portfolio of brands, announced today the launch of an exclusive home collection designed in collaboration with Burton, the world’s leading snowboard company. The new collection will be available through the PBteen catalog, e-commerce site PBteen.com and at the six PBteen stores beginning this September through the 2012 holiday season. To celebrate the launch, PBteen also announced a sweepstakes that will commence today through October 31, 2012 for a chance to win a trip for two, plus VIP access, to the 2013 Burton US Open of Snowboarding Championships in Vail, Colorado and a $1,000 PBteen gift card.*
The new Burton home collection includes bedding, lighting, lounge seating, wall décor and accessories for tweens and teens. The collection features patterns and prints inspired from Burton’s popular apparel line. Some highlights include: a quilt which is comprised of 12 t-shirt logos from Burton’s current and past seasons, as well as a duvet cover modeled after a Burton snowboard jacket with authentic details like zippers and pockets. The Burton home collection also includes wall murals featuring images of Burton Team Riders: Danny Davis, Gabi Viteri, Hannah Teter, Jussi Oksanen, and Nicolas Muller.
“We are thrilled with this exciting new collaboration,” said Janet Hayes, president of PBteen and Pottery Barn Kids. “PBteen and Burton share a love for design and quality. We are excited to bring the Burton lifestyle into teen homes around the country.”
“I think the collection is a natural fit for snowboarders and for anybody who appreciates our lifestyle,” said Jake Burton, founder and CEO of Burton Snowboards. “PBteen is a leader in what they do, and we have great respect for the company. When I sent out samples of the collection to my kids to check out, the feedback was overwhelmingly positive and the product never came back.”
