The collaboration combines Williams Sonoma and Williams Sonoma Home’s commitment to quality, craftsmanship and passion for enduring design, with AERIN’s signature style: a classic, but modern sensibility that imparts both ease and refinement.
“Williams Sonoma has been in my home for as long as I can remember. I am honored to be collaborating with a brand I have admired for so long,” said Aerin Lauder, Founder and Creative Director of AERIN. “Both AERIN and Williams Sonoma share the same sense of style and passion for impeccable design. I am so excited to launch this exclusive collection offering a large variety of pieces that speak to my heritage, passion for entertaining and love for home décor. The collaboration and design process has been a special experience since day one and I hope the customer loves the collection as much as I do.”
The partnership includes exclusive online content, such as a tour of Aerin’s Palm Beach home where the catalog shoot took place, as well as videos highlighting Aerin’s personal entertaining tips and the design inspiration behind the collection.
Shaped by Aerin’s passion for entertaining, the assortment includes tabletop and entertaining pieces featuring a blue and white color palette inspired by traditional delft pottery. The collection features ceramic dinnerware and serveware, glassware, entertaining pieces and outdoor pillows.

The assortment includes pillows, bedding, hand painted cachepots and sculptural pieces, decorative metal and ceramic objects, artwork, chandeliers and table lamps in exclusive finishes.
