SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pottery Barn, a portfolio brand of Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM), the world’s largest digital-first, design-led and sustainable home retailer, announced today the Monique Lhuillier x Pottery Barn summer collection launch, which features the first-ever outdoor tabletop collaboration with the renowned fashion designer.
In 2023, Pottery Barn is celebrating the fifth year of collaboration with Monique Lhuillier — a partnership built on a shared love for beautiful design. The summer collection draws inspiration from Monique’s travels to the Amalfi Coast in Italy and infuses the beauty of nature throughout the home with delicate details, pops of color, and botanical prints. The debut Monique Lhuillier x Pottery Barn outdoor tabletop collection includes elegant, durable and outdoor-friendly dinnerware, serveware, and decorative accessories perfect for warm weather dining and entertaining. The new summer collection expands upon the signature prints and patterns debuted in spring through an assortment of bedding, bath, table linens, decorative accessories, and indoor tabletop.
“We are thrilled to celebrate five years of collaborating with one of the most talented designers in the industry, Monique Lhuillier, whose designs are synonymous with relaxed elegance and beauty. We love translating her impeccable original prints and patterns into great products for the home, and now for the first time, for outdoor entertaining,” said CEO of Pottery Barn Brands Marta Benson.
“Partnering with Pottery Barn over the last five years has been a dream come true. They are experts who have captured my vision of relaxed elegance and passion for entertaining. This summer, we are celebrating our anniversary with the launch of outdoor tabletop inspired by my travels to Positano. I am thrilled to share my love of the Italian coast and dining alfresco with this timeless and delightful collection,” said Monique Lhuillier.
Highlights from the new Monique Lhuillier x Pottery Barn collection include elevated, high-quality melamine tableware for outdoor entertaining. Inspired by rustic Italian stoneware, the artfully fluted edges, sophisticated textures, and charming botanical and fruit prints inspired by Italian coastal living make luxury an everyday occasion.
Since launching the first collection in Holiday 2017, Monique and Pottery Barn have created an additional 13 collections together for all seasons of the year. The collections have included bedding, bath, tabletop, entertaining and décor, all drawing inspiration from Monique’s signature designs and world travels. Monique’s inaugural partnership launched with Pottery Barn Kids in 2016, then expanded to Pottery Barn Teen with a collection launch in 2020.
The Monique Lhuillier x Pottery Barn summer collection will be available in select stores and on potterybarn.com beginning March 31. Be the first to see the collection by following @Pottery Barn on Instagram.
