The latest chapter in the Emily & Meritt for Pottery Barn story offers a selection of pieces perfect for a spring brunch or an easy spring bedroom update. Host a champagne brunch with the Quilted Champagne Bucket and You & Me Mimosa Glasses, paired with whimsical bunny accents including the acacia Bunny Cheese Board and Bunny Vase that holds colorful blooms or branches within its ears. Striped napkins embroidered with delicate flowers are a cheerful addition to the table, especially when paired with the Bunny Ear Napkin Rings. Spring is around the corner, and the new bedding collection is inspired by the promise of warmer days ahead. Create a layered bed that mixes soft black washed cotton duvets and shams with the light blue and white Patchwork Striped Quilt and cozy Garden Stripe Comforter featuring a whimsical stipe and floral print. Add texture with decorative pillows in soft chambray and luxurious Mongolian faux fur and decorate the room with playful accents including the Bunny Ring Holder and Bunny Bookends.

"We were so excited to design a springtime entertaining story and bedroom, a collection that nods to classic American charm, with a smattering of nostalgic floral prints and embroidery, vintage brass and touches of whimsy and edge,” said Emily Current and Meritt Elliott. “The soft layers of stripes are inspired by loved and worn denim, pops of colorful flowers feel optimistically like vintage Victorian, and washed black textiles add in a rough and tumble modernity that offers a beautiful balance and irony. Inspired by traditional springtime icons and creatures, our tablescape is a mash up of sweet charm, humor and new takes on nostalgic tradition- from bunny serving boards to brass baskets."

“Emily & Meritt bring a unique design sensibility to Pottery Barn that our customers love,” said Monica Bhargava, Executive Vice President of Product Development and Design, Pottery Barn. “They infuse whimsy and charm into classic designs that seamlessly layer into any home. The new collection signals the arrival of spring with its soft color palette, cozy textures and whimsical bunny accents.”
