CHICAGO — Crate & Barrel has launched a new collection with New York interior designer Athena Calderone that includes furniture, entertainment and decor products.

“We were thrilled to work with Athena to create timeless pieces that transcend trends,” said Sebastian Brauer, Crate + Barrel, senior vice president of product design, responsible for metaverse and web 3.0. “Athena’s ambitious vision and commitment to living beautifully, coupled with our design-centric craftsmanship and values ​​of living with purpose and intention, shines through in the authentic details and materials of this lifestyle collection.”

The exclusive collaboration draws inspiration from ancient forms and global design discoveries discovered during Calderone’s journey to curate pieces for his home.

Inspired by contemporary and global design elements, the collection builds on the designer’s signature style of making familiar shapes feel new and fresh combined with Crate & Barrel’s modern design. Much like the collection informed that it took Calderone years to curate his own home, these products connect the past, present and future by blending materials, finishes and periods of architectural influence.

“The shared vision of making beautiful design accessible to everyone has really been captured through this collaboration with Crate & Barrel and I can’t wait to see how people style the pieces.” said Calderon. “What an honor to think about how the collection will live in people’s homes and intimate spaces for years to come.”

Highlights of the collection include the Le Tuco chair in Scandinavian-inspired shearling and the Angolare sofa, which features a soft mohair fabric. Entertaining pieces set an elevated tone atop the Es Taller dining table, while décor, including Crucible planters and Facette and Enormous Cannelee vases, give antique shapes a sleek, modern look, according to Calderone.

Available exclusively at Crate & Barrel, customers can purchase the Athena Calderone Collection which includes 137 pieces and prices ranging from $7.95 to $2,699.
