Crate & Kids debuted its latest collaboration, a partnership with textiles designer John Robshaw. The John Robshaw for Crate & Kids Collection brings an assortment of beautiful and luxe textiles to consumers’ homes, from crib sheets and throw pillows, to quilts and rugs. Robshaw, famously known for his global aesthetic, blends cultures and techniques with Crate & Kids products, resulting in a maximalist, yet design-forward line for kids to express themselves. The collection keeps sustainability top of mind, using preferred, organic fibers that will wrap kids in luxury.
Robshaw’s first kids and baby collection with a major home retailer tastefully plays with pattern on pattern, a key factor in Robshaw’s signature style. The Crate & Kids free Design Desk service is available to help guide parents through layering the unique prints to create a one of a kind bedroom or nursery.
“Kids love to dream! This collection brings adventure and optimism to nurseries and kids’ rooms through elevated designs with global influences and roots,” says Sebastian Brauer, Senior Vice President for Product Design and Development. “Bold pattern and energetic color is coming back into the home and this new collection extends that artistic confidence into kids’ rooms, allowing kids to express themselves in fun and unique ways that are rich with cultural references.”
Drawing inspiration from his travels in India as well as his two year old daughter Regina, Robshaw worked alongside Brauer to create a collection meant to transport kids to destinations all over the world. Products such as an embellished camel throw pillow and elephant rug bring kids’ imaginations to life and give them the first stamp on their passport to global style.
“I designed this collection with kids in mind. I wanted to create a world for them, a life in color and print,” says Robshaw. “Kids are wonderfully imaginative and optimistic. My daughter notices everything, big or small, including color and prints. It’s fun to see her be excited by it all and I’m happy to be a part of bringing joy to other kids.”
Parents can choose from bedding, accent pillows, towels and rugs to introduce bold pops of colors to their kid’s rooms. The entire collection features more than 70 pieces, with products ranging in price from $29 – $749. Customers can purchase the collection starting today at crateandbarrel.com/johnrobshaw.
