Modern Classic: Crate and Barrel introduces Fall 2016

Crate & Barrel’s Lounge Collection

Fall is finally here and it’s a fantastic season for change, making it the perfect time to redecorate your home. For Fall 2016, Crate and Barrel is giving the modern classic its moment.

The style of the season – Modern Classic is hard to ignore no matter what your personal style may be. Its longevity is due to its broad appeal and its influence on other styles is profound.

But Modern Classic is not a static look, it can be updated to look perfectly at home with today’s newer designs and plays well as part of a mix – reflecting lives and tastes that span the generations.

“The carefully curated assortment for fall is both inspiring and approachable, featuring beautifully designed pieces meant to be enjoyed every day,” says Ram Bucoy, Crate and Barrel’s head of marketing.

Select trends from the Fall 2016 Collection include:

Color of the season – Classic Blues

Throughout the decades, blue has been a heritage color for Crate and Barrel. From the picket stripes found in Scandinavian design to the plush velvets used on classic upholstery shapes, blue sings to us across all styles. Every instinct told us to grab onto blue for the Fall/Winter 2016 season, pair it with warm neutrals, rich dark woods and in patterns that speak to both the familiar and the surprising. Think of blue blazers and blue jeans. Or blueberries and ice cream. Either way – yum.

“No matter how you use this powerful color, the result is always clean and fresh, calming and timeless,” says Bucoy.

Story of the season – The Great Room

Inspired by the trend, the new normal in so many homes, the love of open room living and the North/Clybourn Dream Big Project.

The Great Room is the heart of so many homes today. It dictates the need for furniture in scale with the grander nature of this living concept: sectional seating and modular storage units anchor the living space, while family and party-sized tables round it out.

Combo of the season – White and Wood

Signature Crate and Barrel: Pure, White, Warm, Simple, Clean. Pairing white with wood has been a signature Crate and Barrel look from the beginning. Today it can be pure white or warm white. Oak, pine, maple, walnut, acacia or sheesham: combinations that are beautiful, calming and timeless.

Trend of the season – Cocktail Hour

Crate and Barrel offer the best in class cocktail collection anywhere with an amazing drinkware in the staring role, bringing in the real cocktail hour back home.
