NORTHBROOK, Ill. — Crate and Barrel will carry three exclusive collections by Italian designer, architect, art director and interior designer Paola Navone. The first of three collections will be available online through crateandbarrel.com and in select stores Sept. 9, and in all locations by Sept. 13.
The first collection will consist of more than 140 items across multiple categories, including tabletop, textiles, decorative accessories, lighting, rugs, dining tables and seating.
"Paola draws influence from many cultures, which she blends effortlessly into her designs, her homes and her personal style," said Marta Calle, Crate and Barrel president and chief merchant. "We are thrilled to collaborate with Paola on this exclusive, affordably-priced collection, which reflects our shared values of casual elegance in entertaining and everyday living."
"Every project begins with a meeting, be it a master, a craftsman, an artist or a business owner. Each meeting is the beginning of a beautiful adventure," said Navone. "My first meeting with Marta Calle was the spark that ignited this dynamic collaboration with Crate and Barrel. Many people from different cultures and parts of the world helped contribute to the Paola Navone Collection Only at Crate and Barrel. We all come away feeling enriched from this experience."
