Together with Crate & Barrel, Athena Calderone designed a 100+ piece collection that paired Athena’s aspirational vision and commitment to live beautiful with Crate & Barrel’s design-centric craftsmanship and shared values of living with purpose and intention.
With a creative world that bridges both food and design, Athena yearned for a collection that expressed the entirety of the home, from the kitchen to tabletop, décor, and furniture. Crate & Barrel’s leading design team was the perfect partner to co-design a collection that is a unified reflection of their multifaceted approach and appreciation for beautiful, functional design.
Inspired by elements of contemporary, global design, the Collection draws on Athena’s signature style of making familiar shapes feel new and fresh paired with Crate & Barrel’s rich heritage of modern design. Each one references a memory, a place, or a time that fascinated or inspired them into making it a reality. Much like the informed collection that took Athena years to curate for her own home, these products connect past, present, and future, by mixing materials, finishes, and periods of architectural influence.
The Strana table (meaning strange or weird in Italian) is based on a unique sculptural one-off unearthed at an estate sale, Athena tells on her website. I think this table is one of my favourite pieces from the collection. Find it here: La Strana Concrete Tripod Side Table

Athena is known for her great cooking skills, loving Italian food I like many of her recipes and regularly cook from her book Cook Beautiful The collection with Crate & Barrel offers everything for setting the table from glasses to plates and decoration.
