Presenting the Fall Collection which embraces the Brand’s Midwestern Roots and Celebrates Modern Farmhouse Style
Dubai, November 26, 2014 - Leading home furnishings destination Crate and Barrel hosted a luncheon at the Farm where guests were welcomed in a tranquil oasis surrounded by naturally landscaped lakes, waterways and botanical gardens. The new fall assortment showcased at the venue demonstrated the brand’s signature entertaining expertise and simple yet elegant design solutions.
Shereen Mitwalli the founder & CEO of ‘The Female Network,’ an online business platform bringing together the women of the Middle East, hosted the afternoon. Tim Hassal played serine melodies while guests they enjoyed a decadent 4 course meal. The entire space as well as the table set up from crockery to cutlery was all decorated with Crate and Barrel Fall products. To bring an end to the day a mixologist provided an exclusive cocktail course with gadget elements from Crate & Barrel.
Effortlessly transitioning between the seasons, the fall collection emphasizes natural materials and warm finishes, in a palette of soft neutrals accented with hues of indigo, orange and citron. Unique products from glowing art glass to intricately stitched pillows to hand-hammered pewter serve ware celebrate hand-craft and add a personal touch to every room.
“The new Crate and Barrel Fall Collection brings our interpretation of the farm-to-table movement into a modern farmhouse setting,” said Raymond Arenson, Crate and Barrel Executive Vice President Merchandising. “For inspiration, we sent our buyers on a road trip to the farm stands and flea markets of the Midwest country side. All of the products we are introducing this fall have extraordinary stories that begin with design and value and are told with a voice that is distinctly Crate and Barrel. We are proud and excited to bring these stories to our customers for Fall 2014.”
Trends from the Fall 2014 Collection include:
● Modern Farmhouse – With an emphasis on simple comfort and natural elegance. Crate and Barrel presents a collection inspired by the modern farmhouse and the shared experiences of autumn: the farmer’s market, a roadside farm stand and communal holiday tables.

Furniture highlights include: Fremont Extension Table (by Russell Pinch), Ellyson slip corner sofa, Sebago Chair and the Origami Drop Leaf Table. The new collection also includes a selection of seasonal accessories and tabletop to complement the modern farmhouse look, including the Modern Rooster Print, Silva Serveware Collection and a selection of sculptural, hand-made baskets (Hooper, Harbert, Bruno, and Auburn, among others), plus farmyard-inspired ceramics to cheer any table, including the Cow, Rooster and Bull Bowls.
● Autumn Celebrations – For the host who loves to get spooky at Halloween, Crate and Barrel’s expanded Halloween collection offers fun and festive party decor and entertaining essentials from the front door to the dining room table.

● Cozy Gatherings – Exclusive new introductions by up-and-coming UK-based designers Russell Pinch (Cullen Apartment Sofa); and Genevieve Bennet (Bessie Rug) reflect the season’s warm and inviting character.
