4in and 5.5in Bowls
With gorgeous color, a high-gloss finish and a gently tapered, tiered design by ceramic artist Camilla Engdahl, this versatile earthenware bowl serves up snacks or ice cream with a generous helping of charm. Coordinating with matching bowls in red, aqua, blue, coral, green and yellow in two sizes.

Our Trevor collection inherits the fine tradition of American craftsmanship with a clean modern style all its own. Impeccably tailored in an elegant spun-linen fabric, Trevor is tucked and tacked with antiqued nailheads, each precisely placed by hand. The sofa’s comfort level is truly gold-standard, crafted with the support of eight-way, hand-tied springs, seat cushions lofted with down.

Hewn from acacia trunks selected for their intriguing shapes and live edge, Teton is ruggedly rustic, naturally sophisticated and utterly unique. Hand finished to a smooth surface, each cross section displays beautiful grain and rich surface detail. The Teton Accent Table is a Crate and Barrel exclusive.
Likewise as metallic accents in décor and furniture continue to gain momentum, “many of our lamps, pendants, mirrors, lanterns, vases, and pillows will have touches of antique bronze, matte brass, hammered copper and brushed nickel. Even sofas and leather chairs will be sporting silver and pewter nailheads.”
Elyse Chair, Santa Fe
The perennially classic accent chair has graceful, curving keyhole arms, rich colors and elaborate details of an antique kilim rug. At once familiar and exotic, the upholstery showcases traditional design flourishes in a spice-inflected palette, printed with a multi-screen process to create its aged and weathered look.. The Elyse Chair is a Crate and Barrel exclusive.
Beach Dear Print Wall Decor
Teil Duncan captures the buzz of activity and the relaxed cool of the beach in this lively composition punctuated by the colorful geometry of beach umbrellas and blankets. This giclée reproduction on paper captures all the detail of the original acrylic painting. Hand-signed by the artist, the print floats on a white mat and simply framed in matte white wood.
With this, Crate& Barrel’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection aims “to inspire customers to reimagine their homes, to find their summerhouse within their home through the use of color.”

The new collection also highlights two of the Crate & Barrel customer’s passions: entertaining in their homes and decorating. With the trend of entertaining friends over cocktails getting stronger the past few years, it has “bar cabinets and bar carts . . . every style of cocktail glass and shaker you wound want. There are also pieces great for “one of the freshest things in decorating today – the artful mix of objects in a bright white space.

In addition to its color trend for Spring / Summer 2016, the brand will be “introducing the next evolution of Crate and Barrel style, which we call Summerhouse. We hope to inspire our customers to think, not necessarily about a summerhouse, but about a vision for their house during the summer. Outdoor furniture and accessories will play a huge part in that vision,” says Raymond.
