Crate & Barrel is collaborating exclusively with Lucia Eames Archive to debut a home collection that includes decor, textiles and other entertaining essentials.

Eames, who passed away in 2014, was known as a multi-disciplinary artist whose media ranged from paper to COR-TEN steel, and whose work ranged from calligraphy to paper-thin collages to a wind harp nine stories tall. The new assortment has a broad array of products that included items for the holiday season to year-round use around the home.

"Exploring the iconic design legacy of Lucia Eames alongside the Eames family was an extraordinary experience," said Sebastian Brauer, senior vice president of Product Design, Global Head of Metaverse. "Translating her original work and optimistic free spirit into a modern collection for new generations is a special and significant moment for American design and culture – and undoubtedly will delight people around the world helping spark joyful moments at home."

"My siblings and I, as well as our partner Form Portfolios, are thrilled to bring to life the art of Lucia Eames in this very special partnership with Crate & Barrel,” said Carla Atwood Hartman, lead archivist & curator, Lucia Eames Archive. “We experience delight in her hope and humor, and now are excited to share her gifts of spirit, joy and optimism with a wider audience to reach new generations of design lovers." 

According to Crate & Barrel, Eames's style mixes a nod to her parents', designers Charles and Ray Eames, industrial design aesthetic with the beauty of nature. Her most famous works were recently brought to life again at Salone in Milan, through a solo exhibition titled "Lucia Eames: Seeing With The Heart."

Available exclusively at Crate & Barrel, shoppers can see the Lucia Eames for Crate & Barrel collection online and at select stores across the U.S. The new collection features 47 pieces and ranges in price from $7.95 - $399.95
