The StudioIlse line features just over a dozen SKUs ranging from lamps, pillows and blankets to rugs, sofas, chairs, ottomans and benches.

Organic materials such as cotton and linen fabrics and woven paper cord are a signature design aesthetic in the collection. Together, they lend natural earthen tones in both fabrics and wood finishes and in the textures seen in the woven designs of chairbacks, bench bases and even pendant lampshades.

Cocktail and side tables, shown in a natural wood finish, are made with ash solids, as are various chair and sofa frames.

“This collection features lightweight, easy-to-move pieces in tactile, natural materials,” the company said. “Their soft shapes and extra storage are designed to elevate the idea of compact living.”

This cocktail table is part of the StudioIlse collection for Anthropologie. Made with a solid ash frame, it retails at $698.

Retails start at $98 for pillows, while lamps start from $498 to $598 for pendant and table styles and top out at $998 for a floor lamp. A woven bench, chair and sofa retail at $1,498, $1,798 and $2,598 respectively, while a side table and cocktail retail from $398 to $698.

This is Anthropologie’s first partnership with Crawford. The founder of StudioIlse, she works with a team of 13 designers whose work spans both residential and commercial projects from homes and hotels to restaurants, schools and offices.

“We are a values-driven studio, and we make our own values and those of our clients visible in the work that we do,” StudioIlse said on its website, “We talk about the power and potential of design as a catalyst for systemic well-being and a frame for life.”

Crawford also is the author of “Sensual Home,” “Home Is Where the Heart Is” and “A Frame for Life: The Designs of StudioIlse.”

In Crawford’s own words, also cited on the website: “Design is a tool to enhance our humanity.”

The collection is now available in Anthropologie stores and on its website,
