Anthropologie is the latest home goods retailer to embark on a partnership with a noted interior designer. The company announced the launch of The Poppy Collection, created in collaboration with interior designer and author Mark D. Sikes.
The collection includes upholstered seating, dining tables and chairs, accent tables, bookshelves and a variety of decor items including vases and frames, ranging from $14 for glassware to $1498 for a dining table.
“We are thrilled to announce the launch of our inaugural collection with revered interior designer, Mark Sikes,” said Mary Beth Sheridan, chief merchandising officer for AnthroLiving, Anthropologie‘s home assortment.
“The collection embodies the classic Americana sensibilities that Mark has spent his career perfecting through his flawless furniture and décor designs. We were adamant about making this collaboration accessible with approachably priced items including a robust gifts and entertaining assortment inclusive of candles and tabletop pieces,” Sheridan continued. “We are delighted to introduce our Anthropologie customers to his refreshing style and point of view. Centered around maximalist prints and modular styling, the collaboration embodies Mark’s signature indoor, outdoor lifestyle.”
Last month, Sikes was announced as one of the designers working with First Lady Jill Biden on redecorating her office in the White House’s East Wing. He also has produced furniture and accessories lines for Chaddock, Soane, Hudson Valley Lighting, Troy Lighting, Schumacher, Annie Selke, Merida, and Blue Pheasant.
“When ideating my dream collection, I knew that I wanted to create luxurious pieces that could complement each other perfectly, but also have just as much an impact on their own,” Sikes said. “From the very beginning, I knew that Anthropologie would be the perfect partner to help me realize that dream. Creating beauty has always been my passion, and I am now realizing that is is also my purpose. Anthropologie’s approach to continually offering products that inspire, excite, and influence their customers is in complete alignment with my values as a designer.
“Throughout the design process, we carefully considered the need for flexible and versatile furniture that changes and grows with us as our lives do the same,” Sikes added. “I am incredibly proud of the collection we created together and am overjoyed at the opportunity to connect with the devoted Anthropologie community.”
Celebrity designers have been in high demand recently with home goods retailers. Last fall, JCPenney tapped design duo Cortney and Robert Novogratz for a home line, Pottery Barn recently partnered with the Black Artists + Designers Guild, and At Home has launched lines with designers Ty Pennington, Tracey Boyd, Grace Mitchell, and Laila Ali.
Sikes Poppy Collection is available now in Anthropologie stores and online.
