Los Angeles-based designer Monique Lhuillier is collaborating with Pottery Barn on a home decor collection set to launch in October.
A member of the Williams-Sonoma portfolio of brands, Pottery Barn is partnering with the designer on a range of products spanning tabletop, entertaining and decor, as well as bedding and bath. It will debut for this year's holiday season, with new collections being introduced for spring 2018 and beyond.
Lhuillier, who started her business in 1996, is known for her feminine, romantic designs and first gained fame designing bridal wear for celebrities including Britney Spears, Carrie Underwood and Reese Witherspoon. Now, she also designs ready-to-wear and accessories and is slated to present her spring 2018 collection in Paris for the first time next month. Lhuillier has previously collaborated with Pottery Barn Kids.
The first Pottery Barn collection will blend playful patterns, rose gold accents, romantic prints and traditional embroidery, according to a news release, blending "my passion for entertaining with my love of fashion to capture a unique sense of style, one that exudes femininity with a modern sensibility," said Lhuillier, who also has a high-end tabletop collection with Waterford, sold at department stores. Prices for the Pottery Barn collection will be roughly $10 for a decorative accessory to $1,000 for a chandelier.
"Monique Lhuillier brings an elegant, romantic sensibility to Pottery Barn and we're excited to partner with her to create beautifully refined collections," said Monica Bhargava, Pottery Barn's executive vp product development and design. "Throughout the design process, we drew inspiration from Monique's gowns, finding the perfect balance of femininity and modernity as we translated her use of color, prints, and texture for the home. We can't wait to debut her first collection just in time for the holiday season."
