With the change in seasons comes a slew of new home collaborations — and we're super excited about CB2's latest. The home decor brand has partnered with interior designer Kara Mann on a collection inspired by Mann's teenage bedroom from the 1980s, meaning "ruffles, polka dots and iridescence," per the press release.

"I have literally carried around a picture from a magazine with a ruffled sofa from I don't even know when. Just waiting for the right moment," Mann told CB2. "And this became the moment."

The line includes 74 pieces that range from furniture to rugs to lighting, priced between $29 and $2,000. Check out some of our favorites below, and shop the full collection here.
