SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Williams Sonoma, a portfolio brand of Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM), the world’s largest digital-first, design-led and sustainable home retailer, announced the addition of a new tabletop collection as part of an expansion of the company’s popular collaboration with award-winning country music superstar and best-selling cookbook author, Trisha Yearwood.
The new Trisha Yearwood Gwendolyn Collection for Williams Sonoma features dinnerware and serving pieces that were inspired by Trisha’s mother’s hand drawings of wedding cakes. Trisha’s mother, Gwendolyn, was a teacher who moonlighted as a wedding planner and cake decorator. Gwendolyn sketched intricate icing designs for the cakes she created and years after her mother passed away, Trisha and her sister Beth found their mother’s drawings. From the original images, Trisha in partnership with Williams Sonoma, designed and created the Gwendolyn tabletop collection by incorporating the special, sentimental drawings as unique details for each piece. Made of embossed glazed stoneware with a hand-painted patina, each product in the collection is stamped with a copy of Gwendolyn’s signature.
“I am so very proud of this collaboration with Williams Sonoma. The Gwendolyn collection is the perfect representation of my mom – elegant, classy and timeless,” said Trisha. “I couldn’t be more excited to honor her memory in this way.”
“Our customers have been able to experience and embrace everything from Trisha Yearwood’s signature cocktail mixes and coffee blends to her favorite Thanksgiving recipes as our successful collaboration has evolved over the years,” said Williams Sonoma President, Ryan Ross. “Trisha’s new Gwendolyn tabletop collection showcases our passion for creating authentic products that our customers love.”
