PB Does PB



I think this may be the brightest print to ever hail from the halls of Pottery Barn. After decades of solid, neutral twills, is it possible that they are moving toward a Palm Beach aesthetic?

Alas, this retro-tropical print armchair is the only piece in the current catalog that dares to stray from the expected Pottery Barn formula. I can easily imagine a pair of these in the background of a Slim Aarons photograph.

Arlington Armchair in "Clarissa Kiwi Print".

I love the new PB! Half the time, I barely look at the catalog. I may have to give them another chance. The fabric on the chair is great!

Well certainly a different theme from PB!

But here i must say the chair compliments the interior.

Very Bright n Cheerful!

Cheers to PB!

Isn't it nice to find a surprise like this chair? I love it when companies do the unexpected. They obviously are watching their competition!

For PB, this is really pushing the envelope, isn't it?!

I thought the same thing when I looked at it. Looks great but definitely seeming out of range for them. ;)

Yes, great print! Thanks for highlighting it.

I thought this was pretty outside the PB box too. When I first saw this, my first thought was PB is trying out a little Anthropology.

These are great - I don't even flip through anymore - feel like I pretty much "got it." Next time I'll give it a whirl.
