Talk about a match made in design heaven—Nordstrom just announced a partnership with Anthropologie that’s pretty much guaranteed to have you rushing to the store to pick up a pretty ceramic plate or gorgeous woven rug. Starting March 19, a selection of Anthropologie items will be available at 15 Nordstrom stores nationwide, as well as online on Nordstrom.com. The Anthropologie Home collection will encompass everything from kitchen and dining to bed, bath, and textiles, making the retailer a one-stop shop for anything your home might need.
“We are thrilled to be launching the best of Anthropologie Home into 15 Nordstrom stores and on Nordstrom.com. Home is a category we continue to evolve, and being Anthropologie’s partner will allow us to introduce dynamic home product with a regular cadence,” said Gemma Lionello, executive vice president and general merchandise manager at Nordstrom, in a statement. “We look forward to providing our customers with another way to shop one of their favorite home brands.”
To be more specific, Nordstrom will feature a combination of both new pieces and old favorites in the just-launched line, with a strong focus on the artist collaborations Anthropologie is so famous for. This definitely reflects a recent trend in the home decor space, which sees big companies turning to smaller artisans to create more intricately designed pieces in unique patterns or textures; for example, Ikea’s latest art event and Amazon’s pretty new ceramics line, to name a few.
Anthropologie’s artist roster consists of a number of super talented names, including Massachusetts-based ceramicist Molly Hatch, who is known for her whimsical patterns and animal-inspired pieces, and UK native Sally Muir, whose dog portraits will make such a playful addition to a boring tablescape. Seriously: Check out her dog-painted dessert plates if you don’t believe us.
This new collab is just the latest step Nordstrom is taking to expand its home offerings. It follows the recent release of a new decor line from Treasure & Bond, Nordstrom’s do-good line which donates 2.5 percent of the cost of each item to charity. While those items seemed a little more subdued, boasting pale pinks and blues for a simpler look, the Anthro line definitely has way more personality.
