The first of three planned collections designed by Paola Navone, exclusively for Crate and Barrel, will consist of more than 140 items across multiple categories, including tabletop, textiles, decorative accessories, lighting, rugs, dining tables and seating. The collection will be available in selected stores on September 9, 2013 and in all Crate and Barrel locations by September 13, 2013.
Paola Navone's unique design aesthetic reflects her lifetime of travel, commitment to handcraft and passion for global culture and design. With her first collection with Crate and Barrel, Paola draws upon these influences to celebrate her love of casual entertaining.
In colors mirroring the Mediterranean--deep blue, cool aqua and crisp white, with accents of vibrant red--the collection showcases the designer's eclectic point-of-view and eye for authentic detail. Fluid shapes and bold textures are a common theme, as are familiar materials--glass, ceramic, wood, tile, marble--combined in unexpected ways.
The Paola Navone Collection Only at Crate and Barrel features pieces with a collected feel that can be easily layered into any decor style, all evoking Paola's distinctive design philosophy and focusing on the experiences created around a shared table.
"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 Paola 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."
Each piece in the collection speaks to Paola's personal style of entertaining. At its heart are three distinct tabletop offerings, designed exclusively for Crate and Barrel, including an expansive selection of ceramic dinnerware, flatware, hand-blown glassware, serving pieces, plus table linens and accessories. The collection also offers a wide array of dining furniture, including eleven dining table options complemented by nine different seating alternatives.
