SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pottery Barn, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM) portfolio of brands, today unveils the brand’s first collection with fashion duo Emily Current and Meritt Elliott (‘Emily + Meritt’), joining sister brands PBteen and Pottery Barn Kids in partnership with the Los Angeles-based designers.

Rounding out the Pottery Barn brands’ offering of Emily + Meritt pieces for the home, the collection features over 30 items characterized by classic ticking stripes, unexpected gold and brass accents, whimsical touches and washed chambray—paying homage to Emily + Meritt’s denim-focused flagship apparel brand, The GREAT.
“After years of creating covetable rooms for both kids and teens, it’s exciting to design something for the living, dining and master bedrooms! We approach interiors the same way we approach fashion – layering whimsical, unexpected elements back to rethought classics,” said Emily Current and Meritt Elliott. “In this collection, we’ve combined washed black and white with touches of vintage-y gold and textural chambray- which can feel both graphic and versatile.”
Signature pieces from the collection include the Bergere Chair, Brass Peace Sign Jewelry Holder, Raleigh Denim Bench and Denim Boudoir Pillow. Prices will range from $8-$999 USD.
“Emily + Meritt bring such an effortless sense of glamour to our brand, taking classic patterns and prints—such as antique ticking stripes and hand-drawn caricatures, creates a stylish expression for the modern household,” said Monica Bhargava, Executive Vice President of Product Development and Design, Pottery Barn. “After incredible success with collections for Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen, we are so excited to unveil pieces for the entire home.”
