Designers Emily Current & Meritt Elliott are no strangers to Pottery Barn’s aesthetic. The duo has previously collaborated with the store’s younger outfit, PBTeen, on a line of whimsical bedding that runs the gamut from old Hollywood glam to Parisian mystique. Now, they’re back with the new Emily & Meritt line, a collection of grown up housewares.
The Emily & Meritt line features fun and sophisticated housewares
This 58-piece collection is a delightful hodgepodge of items. It includes dishware, bar cart tools, bedding and even a few Christmas decorations. But rather than feeling disjointed, each piece feels perfectly curated to fit the designers’ signature style.
The items, while practical, all have twee detailing to them. If you’re a fan of Modcloth or Zooey Deschanel, you’ll know exactly the vibe we’re talking about. The detailing, though, is much subtler than it’s been in previous collections and it’s balanced out by a purposeful use of rich materials. This makes the collection feel elegant and sophisticated, yet still playful.

Without question, this mirror is one of the simplest pieces that this collection has to offer. But we love it because of its versatility.
