Pottery Barn is famous for raising the bar on stylish accessories and home goods, not to mention their A-list collaborations with the likes of Monique Lhuillier, Rebecca Atwood, and of course, the Peanuts and Peter Rabbit crews (to name a few).
It’s no surprise that their latest collaboration with the Black Artists + Designers Guild (BADG) is is a must-have collection filled with statement pieces that up the ante with thoughtful designs. A group passionate about celebrating the work of Black creatives from every design sphere, one of BADG’s main goals is to celebrate Black voices through creativity and the larger themes of unity, diversity, and inclusion within all communities. Through their second collaboration with Pottery Barn (see last year’s virtual show house Obsidian Experience), they hope to bring that message to a larger audience.
Announced in February to coincide with Black History Month, the collection consists of more than 25 products spanning everything from dinnerware to bedding. With contributions from BADG members Penny Francis, Casi St. Julian, and Lisa Turner, the pieces were designed around the concept of “Black Joy” and incorporate some of BADG’s most important messages: unity through inclusion and equity, triumph over tribulations, a celebration of family and love, and establishing harmony as a connected community.
In a recent statement, BADG founder Malene Barnett discussed the collection’s inspiration, stating: “For us, ‘Black Joy’ is possibility and empowerment, a celebratory theme that is woven into our collection [and] this partnership with Pottery Barn builds on our message to honor ancestral legacies while embracing liberatory practices.”
