Barneys Offers Home Goods with Art Images

Barneys New York, the luxury specialty retailer, has partnered with the estate of Roy Lichtenstein and Art Production Fund to launch a limited-edition collection of home goods, available exclusively this summer at Barneys New York.

Roy Lichtenstein (born in New York City, 1923) was one of the leading figures of the Pop Art movement.

The summer-themed collection includes trays, placemats, china dishes, glasses, paper plates, paper cups, pillows, flying discs, pool floats, water bottles, and beach accessories, including bags, towels, and beach balls covered in Lichtenstein’s iconic Pop Art images of the ’60s, ’70s, and beyond.

Lichtenstein original artwork utilized for this special collaboration includes Ice Cream Soda (1962), Drawing for Kiss IV (1963), Baked Potato (1962), Bananas and Grapefruit I (1972), and much more.

“Barneys New York is thrilled to partner with the estate of Roy Lichtenstein and Art Production Fund,” said Mark Lee, chief executive officer, Barneys New York.

According to Barneys, 25% of all sales from the collection will benefit Art Production Fund, a non-profit founded by Yvonne Force Villareal and Doreen Remen and directed by Casey Fremont Crowe which supports public art projects.

The collection will retail between $28 and $295 and will be available at the Barneys New York Madison Avenue flagship, as well as Beverly Hills, Chicago, Miami and Barneys.com.
