We're definitely gonna go your way, if your way is headed toward the new Kravitz Design x CB2 collaboration.
The Lenny Kravitz-founded creative studio and CB2 teamed up again after the success of their 2015 collaboration to bring a curated collection of home décor filled with Parisian influences, African textiles, and plenty of edge.
"To put it simply, we think design should be thought provoking," Kravitz tells MyDomaine. "We hope that when people see it they’ll have a strong emotional reaction. We believe this collection is evocative and will push people to move out of their comfort zone. Some pieces are rough, some are refined, that is intentional."
The new collection features over 70 new items from beds to rugs to table lamps. Moody wood tones, modern shapes, mixed metals, bold prints, and customizable upholstery are common threads throughout the entire launch. The pieces have an artisanal feel, achieved by mixing natural materials with reactive glazes (as seen on the lamp shades), or original prints woven with plush fabrics like corduroy.

“Our first collaboration with Kravitz Design was really a turning point; the synergies of the Kravitz Design team and CB2 have been aligned for years,” CB2 President Ryan Turf says. “For this collection, the blend of African warmth and Parisian chic all felt so natural. Together, we’ve found a new openness to take more risks in pattern, materials and scale, while still holding true to our collective vision of making great design accessible.”
Though it's been 6 years since their last collaboration, the success of that venture led to today's iteration.
"We are proud that pieces from the first collection remain in CB2’s assortment today," Kravitz says. "Doing another collection with them was something we’ve always discussed and because of both brands’ growth, we knew we’d be able to execute the new collection at a very high level."
The latest collection is inspired by Kravitz's home and travels, evoking a global sensibility and high design.
"One of my personal favorites is the Paseo Carved Wood Credenza which drew inspiration from a brutalist-style console that I have in my own home," Kravitz shares. "This piece is not symmetrical or perfect - yet finds its beauty in the imperfections."
