Red-carpet stylists and fashion designers Emily Current and Meritt Elliott released their first foray into home design today in a collaboration with SF-based PBteen. The designer/stylists, formerly behind the denim brand Current/Elliott, incorporated their collective inclination for denim into the inaugural collection, with touches of whimsy and vintage-inspired glamour. The fashion-savvy partners describe the look as "charming Americana."
It may be aimed at the teen/tween market but we're not ashamed to say we're coveting the entire collection. The tufted denim chaise lounge ($799) would be a glamorous, yet relaxed, addition to any bedroom. And accents like the traveler's trunk ($159) and we think the shimmer needlepoint word pillows ($60) is charming for even the most grown-up of spaces.
