New Home Furnishings Collection and Bath Accessories Exude Regal
Elegance; Now Available on PBteen.com

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PBteen,
a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM) portfolio of brands,
today debuts its fourth exclusive collection in collaboration with
designers and fashion stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott.
Designed exclusively for PBteen, the Emily & Meritt
collection is vintage-inspired, with a modern twist. The home
furnishings and decorative accessories exude harlequin elegance, plenty
of whimsy and a touch of royal charm, and are available for purchase on PBteen.com.


“We are excited to unveil our new bedrooms and bath accessories designed
by Emily & Meritt for PBteen,” said Jennifer Kellor,
executive vice president of merchandising for PBteen and Pottery Barn
Kids. “Emily and Meritt are true trendsetters and approach each
collection with playful design and high style. The new collection
perfectly balances sophistication and whimsy capturing the spirit of our
teen customer’s individual style.”

For the first time bath accessories are introduced in the collection.
The Emily & Meritt for PBteen bath collection spotlights
their signature color palette of black and white with a pop of pale pink
and gold accents. The collection includes decorative bath accessories
from a Harlequin Shower Curtain to a Cat Face
Bath Mat
and Classic Heart Towel Set.

“We’re delighted to debut our latest collection with PBteen – just in
time for the back-to-school season,” said Emily Current and Meritt
Elliott. “Our charming bow-back chair inspires creativity, while the
soft pink-colored armoire is an enchanting storage space to stash
clothes, shoes, and other accessories. We love all of our new graphic
bathroom decor for transforming your get ready space into an expressive
extension of your bedroom. And, after a long day of school, sports, and
studying, our eyelash pillowcases and thoughtful throw pillows provide a
sweet spot to drift away.”

The collection also highlights two signature bedrooms, each with a
unique theme, with products across key categories including furniture,
bedding, lighting, wall décor and decorative accessories. Petite
Palace
 brings a touch of royal charm with thoughtful prints,
including a harlequin diamond-pattern, as well as a color
palette of soft blue-grays and pale pinks with golden touches
throughout. Standout pieces include a Royal Dresser and Royal
Bedside Table
, colorful Pennant Flag Garland, and
a simple, yet sophisticated, pink and gold Metal Bow Chair.
Inspired by a dandelion, the collection includes a whimsically shaped
gold Wishweed Floor Lamp. True to their playful aesthetic,
uniquely shaped pillows create the final decorative touch to the room.

The second bedroom collection, aptly named Marigold Magic,
pairs well with Petite Palace and can easily be mixed and
matched together. The collection is playful with its use of shapes, pale
golden touches and unexpected use of finishings, such as glitter, which
is incorporated into accent pieces such as pillows, storage bins and
decorative wall garland. Highlights include a Bunny Ear Task Lamp,
Princess Crown Pendant Light and a standout pink studded Pyramid
Armoire
. New to bedding, the collection introduces a yellow and gray Marigold
Rose Garden Sheet Set
and gray Scallop Ruffle Quilt.

The Emily & Meritt for PBteen exclusive collection is
available for purchase now on PBteen.com
and in PBteen stores nationwide on September 16, 2016 with prices
ranging from $24.50 – $1,249. For more information, please visit

Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, a creative team since 1999, are the
celebrated Los Angeles-based duo known for their whimsical and timeless

Spring 2014. In Spring 2015, Emily and Meritt launched their much
anticipated, multi-category women’s collection, aptly named THE GREAT.
Whether they’re designing a collection, creating memorable outfits for
