in March 2016

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pottery Barn Kids, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE:WSM)
portfolio of brands, announced today plans for a new product
collaboration with renowned bridal, ready-to-wear and accessory
designer, Monique Lhuillier. Composed of over seventy pieces
for nursery, bedroom, and playroom, the ‘Monique Lhuillier for Pottery
Barn Kids’ collection captures Lhuillier’s sophisticated and glamorous
design aesthetic. The collection is inspired by her own experience as a
mother creating serene and magical nurseries and bedrooms for her
children. The capsule collection, which is Lhuillier’s first entry into
children’s home furnishings, will debut in March 2016.

“I have always been inspired by the delightful fantasy of special
occasions,” said designer Monique Lhuillier. “Becoming a parent is a
very special and emotional life event that allows you to see life
through the eyes of your child. As a parent, I believe it’s important to
create a space that reflects your child’s personality, inspires
creativity, and brings a sense of calm to the energetic lifestyles
parents and kids lead. I’m very excited about the collection I’ve
created with Pottery Barn Kids that marries the functionality needed for
baby and kids’ spaces with contemporary, whimsical, and magical design.”

“We are excited to collaborate with Monique Lhuillier to design a
collection for Pottery Barn Kids,” said Sandra Stangl, President,
Pottery Barn Brands. “Her elevated design approach has been a catalyst
in the making of this enchanting collection. Monique has beautifully
translated her fashionable runway designs and luxe details into a
stunning collection for baby and kids home furnishings. We cannot wait
to share the new collection with our customers.”
