Leanne Ford Launched Two Collections for Crate & Barrel, Including a Kids' Line Inspired by Her Daughter
The coolest mom in town has just launched two new collections for Crate & Barrel — a tabletop line and a baby and kids' line that combine style with functionality for all the other cool parents and kids out there.
It's no secret we're in love with all the projects on Restored by the Fords, and fans got their first chance of bringing designer Leanne Ford's signature looks into their own homes earlier this year with her first collection launch for Crate & Barrel. But she hasn't stopped there: Leanne Ford just launched two new collections for Crate & Barrel including a tabletop collection and a baby and kids' collection for Crate & Kids inspired by her own daughter, Ever. The collections feature more than 50 items and reflect Leanne's minimalist style with warm, muted colors and a variety of textures. We share our favorite items from each collection below.
Leanne's tabletop collection is inspired by her own adventures. The collection features ceramic serving pieces inspired by a trip to Portugal, glassware from Turkey and linens from India.
"The idea was to create things that feel found and loved, that mix seamlessly and play well with what you already own. So you can entertain with joy and ease," Leanne says.
This covered dish serves as beautifully as it bakes. With its graceful curves, upturned handles and dual glazes, the round baking dish can go from oven to table to dishwasher. Each of these is a unique piece due to its handcrafted nature and reactive glaze.
Bringing a modern touch to classic farmhouse textiles, oversized black stripes run down the length of this natural linen tablecloth. The tablecloth sets the table for a relaxed yet refined look that suits laid-back gatherings or even elegant dinners.
Handpainted by talented craftspeople, each of these measuring cups is a work of art. The black-and-white patterned glaze reveals glimpses of the terra cotta below on these hand-finished ceramic cups. Adorned with dotted, striped and solid patches, the four cups are charming yet modern. Doubling as small serving bowls for snack mixes, olives and dried fruit, the display-worthy nesting measuring cups make an extra-special gift for anyone who is an artist in the kitchen.
Perfectly sized to rinse freshly picked blueberries, farmer's market blackberries or a grocery store box of strawberries, this colander offers utility and artisan appeal. Skilled craftspeople finish and paint the terra cotta strainer by hand, creating a display-worthy piece that charms on open shelving or the breakfast table. Jaunty handles and drainage holes arranged in blossom-like configurations offer delightful updates on a kitchen stalwart.
Organically-shaped glassware brings nature to your table. These stemless glasses curve in surprising ways for a liquified look. Bringing a dynamic sense of movement to the table, the hand-blown glass flutes and wine glasses serve up sparkling wines with playful yet sophisticated appeal.

Leanne stays true to her minimalist style with warm neutrals in her baby and kids' collection that combines style with functionality. Her collection includes furniture pieces, bedding, decor and more for nurseries, kids' rooms and playrooms. The color palette features neutral tones, warm whites, woods and blacks with accent pieces in dusty suntan pink and indigo blue.
"I made a line that adults would love and be proud to have in their homes, too. But it’s still kid-friendly, joyful, comfy and cozy. And cool!" Leanne says. "After I had a baby, I realized with kids, function needs to outweigh form. But if you can find a way to combine both worlds then you have a real win!"
The snoozer swivel glider brings comfort and cool factor into the nursery, which is why it's one of Leanne's favorite pieces. A rocking chair in a nursery "has to have the right pitch, fabric, arm height, the right swing, and it can’t move when you stand up with a (finally) sleeping baby," Leanne says. The family-friendly charcoal denim offers practicality and durability in an elevated color story, contrasting beautifully with the honey-hued wooden base. To complete the snuggly spot for reading, feeding and singing lullabies, you can add the coordinating storage ottoman.
Made for cool kids, this heart mirror (a heart doodle from Leanne herself) is playful and features an asymmetrical silhouette you'll swoon over. Elevated enough for tweens and big kids (not to mention parents), yet cute enough for little ones of all ages, it's a standout finishing touch that's oh-so-easy to fall for.
A graceful combination of lines and curves, this spindle crib combines classic shapes with modern minimalism. Crafted from solid poplar and oak with a beautiful natural finish, the crib features round spindles framed at either end with bold arches.
This wooden motorcycle brings effortless style and a wildly playful spirit into a kids' room or playroom. Adventurous kids will love going on imaginary highway adventures right from home, and the timeless appeal of natural wood construction will make a beautiful addition to modern playrooms.
This one's for the big kids. Sleek and sheltering, this canopy bed arcs a dreamy, modern sleep statement in black metal tubing. The bed frame features a cool black upholstered headboard, and you can even get matching railing for kids who are transitioning into a big kid bed.
