Brand Spotlight: Pottery Barn, PB Teen, and Pottery Barn Kids

We’re always adding new Modsy brands to our digital catalog to bring you pieces in your style and budget. From your favorite retailers to emerging designers and even hard-to-find brands, keep an eye out for our Modsy Brand Spotlights, where we’ll help you get to know some of the stylish brands you’ll find in your 3D designs.

Today, we’re talking about an old favorite: Pottery Barn.

Pottery Barn Furniture

Meet the Brand: Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, and PB Teen

Pottery Barn was founded in 1949, and today it is part of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. family of brands. The brand was first created when brothers Paul and Morris Secon discovered three barns full of pottery in upstate New York and built up a chain of stores selling their wares. (This is where the name Pottery Barn comes from, in case you’ve ever wondered!) Today, Pottery Barn creates high-end home furnishings in American updated-traditional style. Within the brand, you’ll find different furniture and decor collections that showcase the breadth of looks they create—including some mid-century-inspired and rustic design ideas.

Under the Pottery Barn umbrella, you’ll also find Pottery Barn Kids and Pottery Barn Teen (or, PB Teen). Pottery Barn Kids was established in 1999 by two moms who wanted to create safe and stylish furniture for their children. This line of kids room furniture caters to the needs of children and focuses on functionality. But their pieces are also dedicated to both furniture and environmental safety. This line features pieces for babies up through school-aged kids—from cribs to kids desks, playroom furniture, toys, and more. PB Teen was founded a few years later, in 2003, with a focus on trendy, quality furniture for preeteen bedrooms up through college dorm rooms. Their product lines are teen-focused to help create spaces that teens will love, with style that parents will approve of.

What They’re Known For

Pottery Barn is known for creating very comfortable and livable furniture. They have a high-end style but are built for everyday living, and have proved to be a great option for families with kids and pets. Though mass produced, they have a rustic, homey quality that feels personalized and spans interior design styles. But they don’t just do furniture. They’re also known for quality bedding and bath products like duvet covers, sheets, towels, and more. And their large retail stores are set up in a way to give you an immersive experience with their products while you shop.

Pottery Barn Kids is known for creating customizable items for kids to make pieces special for each individual child—including monograms and many color options. They’re also known for creating stylish furniture that can grow up with your child. Pottery Barn Kids desks and chairs are perfect for those who are homeschooling or doing distance learning! PB Teen is known for their hip and trendy furniture decor, including their pop culture collections. They’re probably most well-known for their popular Pottery Barn Teen Harry Potter collection! PB Teen creates solutions-based furniture for studying and organization (we love Pottery Barn Teen desks!), resulting in multifunctional pieces for teens. But they also make fun lounge furniture, quality bedding, and quirky decor and accessories that allows a teen to really personalize their space.

We love the combo of this leather desk chair and drafting desk.

We paired this office chair with the Francisco drafting desk, which features a wood top and metal legs. This industrial-style Pottery Barn desk offers ample surface space for spreading out with both your computer and paperwork.

And the canopy fabric comes off the frame for easy cleaning—and can be removed altogether for a fresh look!

This shaker-style nightstand is a perfect companion to the Blythe canopy bed. With both closed storage and a lower shelf for books or baskets, there’s plenty of room for bedside storage.

The Best Trendy Interior Design Ideas of 2020 (So Far)

Curious about the latest and greatest interior design trends? There are some seriously great styles that are gaining in popularity right now. We’re loving some of the top 2020 home decor trends, all of which offer something fresh and new—and definitely deviate from mid-century design, which has been the trend darling for quite a while now.

If you’ve ever wondered where interior design trends come from—and why certain trends live on while others die—then you’ll definitely want to listen to episode 4 of our podcast, The Render. In that episode, we unpack some of our favorite and least favorite trends, and discuss how to incorporate trends into your home.

Speaking of which—we’re big believers in balancing trends with personal style. So, instead of going along with every trendy interior design whim, establish your own personal style, then simply incorporate pops of a trend within your space when it feels right. Wondering, “What’s my interior design style?” Take our style quiz to help pinpoint your preferences.

But back to the 2020 home decorating trends. If you’re curious about what interior design styles are trending right now, read on! We’re giving you the scoop on five of our current favorite trends—and we’ll even show you how to get the look, whether you want to go all out or just incorporate it into your home in more subtle ways!

 Trendy interior designTropical Bohemia

What do you get when you mix Hollywood glam with boho eclectic? Tropical Bohemia, a design trend we currently can’t get enough of. It’s a high-end tropical take on boho style, with a very Beverly HIlls Hotel aesthetic. It’s a style that’s not afraid of a little drama and opulence—typical of any glam style—but it’s brought to life in a way that feels playful and inviting.

Shop This Look

How To Get The Look:

Mix natural and luxurious materials. In a Tropical Bohemia space, you’ll find the unexpected combination of natural and glam materials. There will be velvet juxtaposed with leather. Rattan, jute, and cane next to marble and gold. This style is all about the contrast of materials for a bold and dramatic look.

Take a casual approach to styling. While traditional Hollywood Regency glam takes a very formal approach to layout, Tropical Bohemia has a more asymmetrical take. Though there are moments of luxury, this is not a formal style. So, balance out the opulence and drama with casual styling—like a piece of art propped on the floor or mis-matched side tables.

Opt for a rich, vibrant palette. Tropical is in the very name of this interior design style—so go with a color palette that’s inspired by the tropics! Lush greens should be at the top of your list, along with crisp whites, rich earth tones, pops of other vibrant tropical hues, along with gold and natural materials. And know that palm prints are always welcome!

This style is perfect for…

A modern-day Dorothy Draper or Blanche Devereaux. Basically, anyone who loves a sense of drama but wants a less-stuffy approach.

New Traditionalist

Another design trend we’re loving that looks back on the past? New Traditional. It’s a more contemporary approach to traditional interior design—but in a less whimsical and more tailored style than Grandmillenial. This style takes all of the comfort and homeyness of traditional styles, but plays with that idea through a modern lens. Basically, it’s a more modern, streamlined version of traditional

Shop This Look

 Trendy interior designHow To Get The Look:

Mix comfortable foundations with traditional accents. Comfort is key with New Traditional style. So, go for a plush sofa with a hint of traditional shape. Accent pieces can feature more traditional lines, which you can see in the accent chairs in this living room. Antiques are also very welcome in this style! Incorporating a balance of hard and soft makes this style feel rooted in the past but geared toward the needs of the present.

Design with a classic color palette. New Traditional design works best with tried and true hues. You can’t go wrong with a crisp and stately blue and white color palette, which is steeped in the history of traditional style. Add pops of red if you want to take an Americana slant to this style. Rich wood tones will add warmth to the design.

Incorporate traditional patterns and motifs. Play up the traditional side of this style with traditional patterns and motifs. This can show up in an old-world rug design, striped upholstery on accent chairs, and botanical artwork, as in the living room above. But, in general, stripes, florals, plaids, and any patterns and motifs that draw from the past are welcome here! Just be sure to opt for a few prints with a more contemporary edge to bring this look into the present.

 Trendy interior designThis style is perfect for …

Anyone who loves antiques mixed with modern spaces and who love the past but want to live in the present.

 Trendy interior designEdgy Minimalism

Edgy Minimalism is an interior design style that features minimal style with an eclectic twist. The result is considered and sometimes spare spaces with a fun, energized vibe. There’s lots of room to display personality through a mixed collection of furnishings and a few bold accessories. But, even in the personality-packed elements, this style feels highly curated.

Shop This Look

 Trendy interior designHow To Get The Look:

Design with a high-contrast neutral palette. Edgy Minimalist rooms are bold yet neutral. How? A high-contrast color palette. You’ll see mostly neutral colors, but in a wide array of tones and saturation levels. We love the black and white palette of this dining room office, that also has pops of wood and metals to warm it up. The result? Energized spaces that still feel curated due to a cohesive palette.

Emphasize geometric elements. Shapes abound in an Edgy Minimalist space. There’s a lot of drama in geometry. The foundational furniture often has bold shapes with little applied ornament—meaning the pieces themselves make a statement. The lighting, accent furniture, and decor feel sculptural, acting as functional works of art.

Style with a curator’s eye. While there is a good amount of “stuff” in these rooms, they still feel edited. Basically, it’s a less-is-more, minimalist’s approach to styling, where you just display your best pieces of decor—not all of your pieces. This lends itself to curated gallery walls and styled open shelving.

 Trendy interior designThis style is perfect for…

Those who can’t choose between their love of minimalism and showing off their personality—because edgy minimalism gives you both! It’s also great for couples or roommates who need to merge opposite styles into one space.

Americana Farmhouse

Americana Farmhouse style is a rustic-meets-coastal, beachy take on farmhouse style. It celebrates everything we love about Americana design, but with coastal undertones that creates relaxing and livable spaces. It’s a fresh take on older, more traditional Americana design, brought to life in a way that feels stylish and on-trend.

Shop This Look

How To Get The Look:

Root the design in comfort. With Americana Farmhouse style, keep comfort in mind when choosing your foundational furniture, like the overstuffed sofa and comfy armchairs in this living room. Large furniture, like sofas and beds, should have streamlined forms with hints of traditional in their bones. Accent furniture can be more traditional, but should still have an easy approachability and comfort.

Incorporate plenty of natural materials. As you can see, there is a lot of texture in this Americana Farmhouse living room. With a limited color palette, textures help bring the room to life. Natural materials and textures like jute, linen, leather, cane, and weathered woods—to name a few—are incorporated in the furniture, rug, and decorative accents. All of this creates a neutral space that feels serene and approachable.

Opt for accents in red and blue. While, overall, Americana Farmhouse spaces are neutral, punctuating them with pops of red and blue brings the look to life. It gives a nautical feel to the space without becoming too beachy. We recommend incorporating the pops of red and blue in pillows, decor, art, and even accent pieces like poufs and coffee table books.

This style is perfect for…

Those who want a relaxed look that still feels polished. It’s a perfect family-friendly style, and is great if you like farmhouse or Fixer Upper style but want something fresh and for your living room to feel more unique.

Shop This Look

Grandmillenial Design

Grandmillenial style—also known as granny chic—is all about whimsey and an appreciation for the past. And it’s one of our favorite interior design trends of 2020. Those who embrace this style have a love of design elements that are often considered to be outdated or stuffy by the mainstream. As in: ruffles, floral patterns and chintz, chinoiserie, embroidered linens…the list goes on. Grandmillenials have a maximalist approach to decor—with patterns on patterns on patterns—and the furniture has classic underpinnings. There’s a nostalgic, old-timey aesthetic to this style, along with a sense of formality—but it’s definitely not stuffy. Rather, it’s a more fun and youthful take on your grandmother’s style.

Shop This Look

How To Get The Look:

Incorporate granny florals galore. As we mentioned, this is a style that says: the more patterns the better! Especially when they’re more vintage-inspired patterns like toile and chintz, or even the more modern but still nostalgic patterns, like those found in the wallpaper designs at Rifle Paper Co.

Opt for classic furniture. In a Grandmillenial home, opt for furniture styles that feel classic or traditional in form. So, no modern, sleek lines here! Rather, make sure there are some ornate details, like carved or scrolled furniture legs, scalloped edges, and tufting in chairs and sofas. But this classic furniture should also be comfortable—because this style is all about creating a cozy sense of home.

Curate Your Clutter: This is definitely more of a maximalist style—but you don’t want it to feel chaotic. Rather, collections and tablescapes should have a sense of being curated or edited. So, embrace your inner grandma and layer in lots of knick knacks and decor! But just make sure it’s thoughtfully arranged.

This style is perfect for…

Those with an appreciation for the past, who have a nostalgia for grandma’s house and style. (And also a deep love for floral patterns.)

best bar cabinetsIf you’re still rolling with a bar cart, it might be time to consider switching up to a stylish and functional bar cabinet! For 2020, we’re seeing the decor focus shift from carts to cabinets for housing barware. Unlike carts, cabinets feature hidden storage, so there’s no need to worry about perfect styling because you don’t have to keep everything out on display. (Not to mention there’s a lot less dusting!) The bar cabinet trend is a more holistic approach because it weaves the home bar into your whole decor scheme.

With the holidays right around the corner, you might be looking to add a bar area to your space—a well-stocked (and styled) bar is the key to a great party, after all. This year, you can raise the bar on entertaining with a show-stopping bar cabinet in your home! Here are some of our stylists’ picks for the best bar cabinets in the game.
