SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pottery Barn, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM) portfolio of brands, today unveils an exclusive product collaboration with celebrated designer and lifestyle curator, Ken Fulk. The collection features more than 60 pieces for living room, bedroom and bar, including furniture, tabletop and barware, rugs, lighting, wall art and decorative accessories, offering anyone the chance to bring home a little magic from a celebrated tastemaker. From the Quilted Leather Sectional crafted in quilted full-grain Italian leather and Crocodile Coffee Table made of cast bronze with crocodile-skin texture, to the playful barware and retro gold-rim glassware illustrated with a charming sketch of Fulk's beloved golden retriever, the entire Ken Fulk for Pottery Barn collection showcases charm, personality and attention to every design detail. The Ken Fulk for Pottery Barn collection is available at Pottery Barn stores and online at potterybarn.com, with prices ranging from $6-$10,000.
The San Francisco-based interior designer and event planner is renowned for the elegance and whimsy of the environments and experiences he curates and the luxurious details inherent to all he touches. Fulk brings that same aesthetic to Pottery Barn, resulting in a collection that is modern yet classic with a dash of humor and personality.
"Pottery Barn was a very natural fit for me as I've long admired their iconic American style," said designer Ken Fulk. "For our collection, I turned to my own life and the things I love for inspiration: travel, entertaining, my dogs, the daily rituals and the special moments. This is a very personal collection, and is essentially an extension of who I am."
Signature pieces and Fulk favorites include the Quilted Leather Sectional, Retriever Ice Bucket and Bar Tools, Graphic Applause Sign, Brass Bar Cart and Giraffe Bust, among others. In addition to unique designs, Fulk also shares his tips for how to host a magical event with style on PotteryBarn.com.
"We are thrilled to partner with Ken Fulk on the first collaboration of its kind for Pottery Barn," said Sandra Stangl, President, Pottery Barn Brands. "We love the wit, whimsy and effortless elegance he brings to everything he does, and his collection for Pottery Barn embodies his fearless approach to design. We can't wait to share this exciting new collection with our customers and bring a bit of Ken's magic touch to our customer's homes."
