The Chelsea Passage floor at Barneys on Madison Avenue is about to receive a heavy dose of Pop Art this week, courtesy of a limited-edition Roy Lichtenstein home goods collection. The line—which was overseen by the late artist's wife, Dorothy, and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation—includes everything from cups and plates to pool floats, with items like beach towels, bags, and china all included as well. 25% of the sales will benefit the Art Production Fund.
Dennis Freedman explains, "We're not trying to be overly serious. There is a playfulness and that's intentional. We hope people will use the beach ball and the pool float." That playfulness naturally extends to the windows, which you can see in the gallery above.
