CB2 Reunites with Kravitz Design to Unveil a Globally Inspired Collection | News

Kravitz Design, headed by Lenny Kravitz rolls out new CB2 designs.

CHICAGO — Following their seminal partnership in 2015, high-design home destination CB2 debuts its latest collaboration with Kravitz Design by Lenny Kravitz. The extensive collection, inspired by African textiles, Parisian vibes, and rock ‘n’ roll edge address all areas of the home.

The assortment features an array of influences that come together for a seductive bohemian energy that’s quintessentially CB2 and Kravitz Design. Rich woods, modern frames, metals mixed with bold prints, and customizable upholstery are available throughout the entire collection.”Our first collaboration with Kravitz Design was really a turning point; the synergies of the Kravitz Design team and CB2 have been aligned for years,” said CB2 President Ryan Turf. “For this collection, the blend of African warmth and Parisian chic all felt so natural. Together we’ve found a new openness to take more risks in pattern, materials and scale, while still holding true to our collective vision of making great design accessible.”

An unapologetically global point of view, inspired by Lenny Kravitz’s travel and homes, the collection exudes liveable luxury and unparalleled craftsmanship including:

Lighting: Mixing natural materials on lamp shades with reactive glazes that add an artisanal and hand-crafted touch to the design, the rattan lighting pieces standout for both scale and warmth.

— Metals: A new use of metals, including a fully cast aluminum dining table with bronze finish and polished nickel accents across bedroom and dining pieces, adding a fresh look to the collection’s aesthetic.

— New fabrics and patterns: The new corduroy upholstery fabric weaves in additional texture into the collection and perfectly pairs with the plywood base for the Vaneri Black Corduroy Chair. All new prints featured in the assortment are original to Kravitz Design and all upholstery in the collection will allow for customization.

“Home should be a place where you feel like yourself and your spirit is comfortable,” said Lenny Kravitz, founder of Kravitz Design. “The new collection is based on a mélange of places, things and people that I have encountered through my travels, which is evident in the design elements of the new pieces. CB2 and Kravitz Design have both grown as companies, becoming more adept at designing and editing. This new assortment reflects that elevated aesthetic, focusing on quality, craftsmanship and high-design.”

The new CB2 x Kravitz Design collection includes more than 70 new products. Highlights include:

Paseo Carved Wood Credenza: Made with FSC certified white oak, the paseo carved wood Credenza is stained with carbon black, white, and dark walnut. The pattern on the doors is a bold statement for any room.

Sojourn Printed Ogo Bed: Where polished nickel and geometric fabrics mix. All prints were developed exclusively by Kravitz Design for this CB2 collection.

Ramble Black and Natural Rug: Made of 100 percent jute at 16-18 knots per square inch, this jute rug is the perfect blend of bold and neutral. The pattern created by Kravitz Design was inspired by African Kuba Cloth. The blend of tan and black colors makes this a great rug for an array of styles. The bold unique pattern helps make a statement in any room.

Takat Wood Barstool: The Takat Wood Barstool mixes materials and fin
ishes with a simple silhouette to form the perfect seat. Made of oak wood in a dark walnut finish, the seat has light wire brushing and sits on top of brass toned cast aluminum legs and a footrest.
