Pottery Barn’s evolving store design has green tints


Pottery Barn opened its redesigned store at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, California.

The 17,293-sq.-ft. store is influenced by the Spanish Mediterranean architecture found throughout Orange County, blending traditional and contemporary elements to create a refined and relaxed environment. As part of Pottery Barn’s commitment to sustainability, the store features LED lighting to reduce energy consumption and low VOC paints to reduce toxins.

The store features grand-scale steel framed windows and rustic wood barn doors with hand-forged metal accents that open into a warm and bright interior. Inside, beams made of reclaimed cedar and shelves made of oak salvaged from old barns add character while concrete and brick walls add texture through the use of mixed materials. Additionally, an expanded design studio offers new tools and resources to assist customers in visualizing and customizing interior design and home furnishings projects.

“South Coast Plaza is the second installment of our new store design and showcases our inviting and timeless home furnishings and décor in a refreshing new light,” said Laura Alber, president and CEO, Williams-Sonoma, parent company of Pottery Barn. “This exciting update provides an opportunity to create a localized store experience that encourages a sense of discovery, makes shopping easy and fun, and offers tailored services to help our customers create their dream homes.”
