The Kara Mann Collection for CB2 Looks Back to Live in the Now

CB2 has released a fun yet sophisticated fall collaboration with renowned interior designer Kara Mann that shows off the art of contrast. The inspiration for the 74-piece Kara Mann Collection comes from Mann’s teenage dream bedroom. These designs create an updated take on the space that’s full of cool tone on tone neutrals that are easy to mix and match alongside ruffles, polka dots and iridescence in new materials and modern lines. You’ll also find swirl resin, slubbed sateen upholstery, ultra-clear glass, sprayed concrete and more used on pieces that are edgy yet romantic.

Ease Lounge + Ottoman, Wedge Side Table

“Kara is a creative visionary, and together we’ve created a collaboration that leads with quality and design, but at approachable price points,” said CB2 President Ryan Turf. “While I think any design aficionado will recognize the edginess and high quality in every piece, the collection is still accessible enough to be mixed in with our customer’s personal style.”

The Kara Mann Collection should resonate with designers as well as consumers, this is the first CB2 collaboration that offers rugs measuring up to 10×14 feet. It’s also the first collection where all upholstery pieces will be a part of CB2’s custom program, with a selection of fabrics exclusively curated by Mann herself. It’s a robust group of home furnishings that features rugs, bedding, dining, lighting, decor and then some.
