Have you ever seen one of your favorite creators collab with a brand and wondered if they were really allowed to be involved? It happens. An influencer slaps their name on a project and launches without thought — or without permission to really contribute.
We’ve seen that a lot, which is why we were over the moon to see Athena Calderone’s new collection of home goods and furniture with Crate & Barrel. The collection is filled with gorgeous pieces that bear Calderone’s distinctive style — a subject we’ve been featuring for almost a decade now (see our first feature — still gorgeous!).
A collaborative collection this good hasn’t come around for quite some time. There are tons of products, from furniture to accent pieces, each one distinctive and unique. While the design buzz is hot, we thought we’d share our three favorite pieces from the collection so far…
Our Top Picks: Athena Calderone For Crate & Barrel
Sassolino Coffee Table | This two piece coffee table is everything we’re craving for a living room that’s organic and monochromatic, but not boring. Made of concrete and burl wood, the large and small tables can be purchased separately, but really live best as a team. SHOP THE TABLE
Courbe Green Ceramic Table Lamp | Lamps are a whole situation in home design these days and lamps with rattan shades like this one are all the rage. It’s tough to make something that feels special and new in this category, but this rustic green ceramic lamp pulls it off. There’s something Galapagos Islands-related about the look — a very subtle quirkiness that runs throughout Athena’s work. SHOP THE LAMP
Bol Délicat White Footed Centerpiece Bowl | Last among our picks, this simple, but perfect footed bowl that adds instant elegance to any room. Yes, ideally you fill it with a bit of weathered driftwood, as shown, but if you throw your keys in it in an entryway or even a few kids’ toys — it still works. Shop the Bowl
