In addition, Pottery Barn is celebrating the debut of Fulk’s first book, Mr.

Barn on Saturday, November 19, from 3-5pm.


“We are thrilled to support Ken Fulk with the launch of his book, Mr.
Ken Fulk’s Magical World,
and once again offer our customers a peek
into his unique creative spirit,” said Monica Bhargava, EVP of Product
Development, Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, Inc. “We love the wit,
whimsy and effortless elegance he brings to everything he does and we
look forward to sharing his brilliance with our customers.”

Fulk, a San Francisco-based interior designer and event planner, is
renowned for curating unexpected and often over-the-top experiences and
environments. His first book, Mr. Ken Fulk’s Magical World, features
more than 200 color photos with accompanying narration by the designer,
and showcases the best of his signature projects over the past decade.
Customers can purchase the book at Pottery Barn stores or online at
PotteryBarn.com and in select markets, meet Fulk at one of the following
events at Pottery Barn stores:

Signature pieces from the Ken Fulk for Pottery Barn Collection
include the Admiral Bar Cart and Retriever Fireplace Tools, both
reintroductions from Fulk’s first Pottery Barn collection that debuted
for Fall 2015, as well as new entertaining and gifting items including
the Penguin Shaker and Penguin Cocktail Glasses.

“I’ve always loved penguins; it looks like they’re dressed in little
tuxedos, which is why it made the perfect figure for our dapper yet
playful new cocktail collections for the holidays,” said designer Ken
Fulk. “Life should be fun; don’t be afraid to live large.”

Upholstered furniture items, including a sofa and u-shaped sectional,
feature distinctive tufting and are available in a rich full-grain
Italian leather or soft ebony velvet. Fanciful yet contemporary, the
collection is ideal for glamorous holiday celebrations with prices
starting at $19.50.
