Best-selling author, interior designer, culinary tastemaker and EyeSwoon founder Athena Calderone is an acknowledged creative force in the design world. Today, she’s adding a new string to her bow by designing an eponymous collection of furniture, lighting and tableware for home décor store Crate&Barrel.
Here, she talks exclusively to H&G, as we showcase her new collection.
