Robert and Cortney Novogratz—TV’s famed husband-and-wife design duo collaborate with CB2 and created a mix of vintage and modern look furniture and home accessories. My favorite piece is the limited-edition Light Up the Family Set spells out their bold signature style, making a big statement in colorful typography on six lettered acrylic panels, each framed in brushed nickel-finished steel, to compose the word, “family.” “We created this idea for our own home because we wanted to prominently display a work of art everyone in the family could relate to. Art is a big part of our lives, and our kids are used to living with it all around them every day. We love using light as a medium because it’s fun and unexpected, and everyone can relate to it at any age. Families come in all shapes and sizes, whether yours is a family of nine like ours, a close-knit family of friends, or a family with loved and indulged pets. This piece reminds us every day to celebrate our own families.”

Hip home furnishings brand CB2 announces their partnership with well-known husband and wife design duo, Robert and Cortney Novogratz. Stars of several popular Bravo and HGTV shows, including their namesake series, Home by Novogratz, the couple will lend their inspired approach to a variety of upcoming projects, including a line of exclusive furniture and accessories for the brand.
Dedicated to increasing the awareness and accessibility of modern design, CB2 constantly looks for fun, fresh and innovative ways for consumers to engage with design. A key part of that mission includes working with an array of established and up-and-coming designers to diversify the collections and offer customers new ways to approach home décor and have fun with—or even discover—their personal style.
With an unwavering passion for stylish living, a distinctive aesthetic and an eye for defining trends, The Novogratz’s sense of design is unparalleled. Heading into the second season of HGTV’s widely-popular show Home by Novogratz, the couple has worked with a number of marquee names, including fashion designer Cynthia Rowley, professional skateboarder Tony Hawk and Design*Sponge founder, Grace Bonney. The couple’s “Downtown Chic” aesthetic and love of experimentation echoes the CB2 attitude and will be reflected in the pieces they design for the brand.
“Robert and Cortney embody the CB2 style—their fearless use of color and thoughtful attention to detail lends true personality to each space they design,” said Marta Calle, Director of CB2. “They have a unique yet approachable design perspective that we look forward to sharing with our customers.”
“Our goal is to help bring a shot of color, style and fun into everybody’s environment and urge them to try something new in their space and enjoy the process like we do,” noted Robert Novogratz. ”We are delighted to be able to bring our design aesthetic to our many fans at an affordable price.” Cortney Novogratz continued “CB2 is the perfect partner for the collaboration, and we couldn’t be more excited to work with them, and appreciate their support in helping us to be able to “Novogratz” a wider audience.”
The Novogratz and CB2 have a shared mission to help consumers incorporate smart design into everyday life and the partnership will exemplify that. The collection will be available to consumers via online, catalog and in stores in 2012. CB2 will announce additional details on the partnership later this spring.

Robert and Cortney Novogratz and their seven children have made stylish family life hip again in the lexicon of pop culture.
The Novogratz have built a signature design brand for themselves, with reach across the globe, creating fabulous, luxe and inspired residential projects, rebuilding entire city blocks in Manhattan, turning condemned buildings into some of the most striking homes in the city. “Houses full of fabulous design”—Emirates Home Magazine.
For more than two decades Bob and Cortney have been designing, traveling and on the constant hunt for collecting new pieces, refurbishing vintage and creating original furniture and home goods when they couldn’t find the right look in the market place. The natural progression was to launch their own home goods line. The collection retains the integrity and recognizable look of the Novogratz luxe aesthetic and seemlessly marries modern and vintage and high and low priced decor. Novogratz™ launching summer 2011.
