From the silver screen to the fashion industry, Reese Witherspoon tends to make it all look easy. While the A-lister has been gracing our televisions for years, superfans (and honestly, aren’t we all) can now find the Academy Award-winning actress at a local Crate and Barrel, too. That’s right:, our beloved Elle Woods is the brand’s newest ambassador, and we couldn’t be more excited about the news.

The partnership only seems natural, as the Big Little Lies star has been championing all things design and entertaining as of late via Draper James, her Southern-inspired fashion and lifestyle brand which, launched in 2015. While the two brands will release a co-designed collection for Spring and Summer 2018, eager shoppers need not fear. In anticipation for the holiday season (and collaborations to come), Crate and Barrel is currently highlighting a selection of Draper James plates, mugs, and other homeware goodies which excited buyers can snag both in-store and online.

Inspired by Witherspoon’s Tennessee upbringing, Draper James’ tableware takes a playful turn with a spirited color palette and other fun details, like dynamic doggie-themed patterns.

“A lot about Southern culture is hostessing—we love plates and dishes and glassware and barware—so I’m bringing some of that Southern charm and sensibility and humor to the Crate & Barrel brand, which is timeless and modern,” Witherspoon told Refinery29. "It's really just the melding of two classic styles." It's safe to say that Draper James' homeware selection is nothing short of charming, and we expect the same from the brands' co-designed collections, come 2018.
