Leanne Ford’s New Furniture Line at Crate and Barrel Is a Trip—Take a Look

Crate & Barrel; HGTV

Leanne Ford, co-star of the HGTV show “Restored by the Fords,” is known for her fantastic home designs, so her fans are no doubt excited that she’s branched out to release her own furniture line, now available at Crate & Barrel.

The 109-piece collection includes furniture, bedding, rugs, decor, and artwork that channel her worldly yet comfy vibe.

“Design is global these days, and working with Crate & Barrel, we were able to go straight to the source,” she recently told House Beautiful.

This means you’ll find a stylish bar cart from Indonesia woven from natural cane, gorgeous handcrafted Portuguese ceramics, and more that can add exotic, luxe vibes to your home.

Ready to shop the look? Here are eight picks that’ll add some global charm and warmth to your home.

Accent chair

“I love the curvature of her pieces—they’re not angular like so much of what you see on the market today,” says Julie Coraccio, author of “Got Clutter?” “This chair looks comfortable and could easily fit the style of most homes.”

This piece also comes in white or natural colors, and is made from kiln-dried woods that won’t warp ($999, Crate & Barrel).

Bar cabinet

Gather ’round for a drink from this circular bar cart.

“This would be such a fun piece to own, and if you don’t drink, you could store craft materials inside,” says Coraccio.

It also comes in a charcoal hue and offers two shelves on the inside, plus several nooks to hold wine bottles ($1,999, Crate & Barrel). But the best part? The caned half-moon doors offer a glimpse of the goodies inside.

Canopy bed

Graceful arches add drama to this sleek sleeper.

Canopy beds are back—and they’re not like the ones your Grandma once owned. Instead, modern silhouettes have supplanted the fussy (and fusty) looks you might remember from bed-and-breakfasts and country inns.

“I can’t recall seeing this type of curve anywhere else, but it’s definitely a twist on the classic canopy,” says Coraccio.

The rods at the top allow you to drape your cozy nest with sheer panels or leave it stark if that’s your jam. This piece also features a cushioned headboard and simple platform bottom—no box spring required (from $1,799, Crate & Barrel).

Fringe throw

A soft, machine-washable accent for the bed or couch

This blanket looks like it’s on the plain side, but the textured weave and feathery fringe on every edge elevate it to new heights.

Try this throw, which comes in both white and sand shades, at the end of your bed or behind a chair in a reading nook ($100, Crate & Barrel).

Jute rug

This smart-looking floor cover comes in both black and clay shades.

There’s more fringe on Ford’s rug designs. (She’s a big fan of the detail and said it’s a favorite, second only to bangs!) In the runner size, this flat-weave jute rug is a nice addition to the spot in front of your kitchen sink. Or you could try the larger choice in the den ($299 and up, Crate & Barrel).

Footed bowl

Try this glazed terra-cotta piece in taupe, black, or white for the most stylish fruit bowl ever.

Crate & Barrel

Create an arresting display with a trio of these footed ceramic bowls along a sideboard, or showcase one on the kitchen counter—your bananas never looked so good ($40, Crate & Barrel).

Woven baskets

Stash towels or a potted palm in these rustic containers.

Crate & Barrel

Ford’s affinity for baskets is well-known as her own home sports several that have been made into oversize light fixtures. If you’re the DIY type, you could retrofit this pick with a bulb and hang it high. For the rest of us, this handcrafted design is ideal for holding toys, footwear, and bathroom supplies ($80 each, Crate & Barrel).

Bench

Stain-repellent fabric means this piece is durable enough for everyday use.

Crate & Barrel

Ford has described the furniture in her collection as “soulful materials living in classic Italian shapes.” This pick definitely fits the bill with its sexy, playful curves. Place it at the end of a bed or in front of a fireplace for an easy perch that doesn’t block sightlines ($999, Crate & Barrel).
