Drift Away With Pottery Barn and Airstream’s Special Edition Travel Trailer
Pottery Barn and Airstream just announced the latest iteration of their recent product collaboration: an entire trailer. Citing the influence of Pacific Coast Highway’s sun, sand, water, and fog on an impeccable interior material and color palette, Pottery Barn chief design officer Monica Bhargava and Airstream CEO Bob Wheeler revealed the Special Edition Travel Trailer from the two iconic American heritage lifestyle brands in a virtual roundtable yesterday afternoon.
In addition to the standard amenities found in all Airstreams—a dedicated onboard kitchen, a bathroom, and sleeping and relaxing areas—the new trailer is finished with hardware, soft goods, fixtures, and touches inspired by Pottery Barn’s collections, including a sofa inspired by Pottery Barn’s Big Sur Collection with a hidden airline-style table in the arm. The collaboration shines brightly in the kitchen, where Pottery Barn’s design instincts led to the inclusion of a unique solid oak wood dinette table, inspired by Pottery Barn’s Benchwright Dining Collection. The dinette table is built with oak hardwood while the kitchen features a matte-black pull-down kitchen faucet, a stainless-steel flat apron sink, and a solid walnut cutting board sink cover. And in another design first for Airstream, an outdoor hanging table attaches to the trailer’s exterior creating the perfect place for entertaining, no matter the time of day. Pottery Barn also put its signature touch on the exterior awning and the accessory kit, which comes with each trailer, including a 16-piece Mason Stoneware Dinnerware Set, an Indio Outdoor Folding Table and Armchair Set, a doormat, and more. The trailer can sleep up to five people and has an MSRP of $145,500.
“It’s a match that makes sense in many ways,” said Wheeler during the roundtable. “Pottery Barn has this kind of magical ability to shape a space. You see it in their home interiors, where there’s a comfortable, functional beauty to even the smallest spaces. They understand how your home is this canvas where real life happens, and we love how they applied that to the Airstream lifestyle.”
