Leanne Ford Has a New Crate & Barrel Collection, and Yes, It Includes Disco Balls

“My inspiration is honestly my life,” says Ford, who left her just-renovated Los Angeles dream home for a farmhouse fixer-upper outside her native Pittsburgh to be closer to family. “Leaving the big city and moving to the country, I’ve embraced the simplicity and joy that’s brought our family, and I was inspired by the style, architecture, weathering, and age of where we’re living right now.”

An appreciation of nature’s beauty has always been an undercurrent in Ford’s aesthetic; in fact, she told me the best artwork is often the view right outside your windows. This time, that ethos is even more present in the new collection’s materials and palette: mixed woods, grasscloth, and Ford’s signature black and white shades punctuated with rust, ochre, brown, and hits of metallics like silver and bronze.

Some of Ford’s most popular pieces are even being introduced in new silhouettes and finishes, like the Fields Settee, which is a whitewashed, loveseat-sized version of a chair from the original collab. “For fall, we wanted to bring back those customer favorites but also extend the line with warmer tones, bleached woods, and things with a cozy, romantic fall vibe,” says Sebastian Brauer, vice president of product design at Crate & Barrel. 

Of course, the holidays call for a little bit of sparkle and shine, and Ford’s all for blingy tabletop and accent pieces, even going so far as incorporating a set of disco ball tree ornaments into this range. “Greenery may be my main holiday color, but I’m thinking a silver tree with disco balls on it this year,” she says. “After the holidays, you can even put the little disco balls into a bowl and use that as a table centerpiece year-round.” The line also includes a set of cute metallic bottle brush trees, which have the perfect vintage-inspired look to them if you want to get a little nostalgic for Christmas or the holiday season.
