Anthropologie’s latest collection has gone to the dogs. Available as of February 19, the boho retailer released Bone Appetite, its tableware collaboration with Philadelphia artist Jay McClellan, most known for his lively dog paintings.

Bone Appetit will feature 11 items in total, among them mugs, dessert plates, dishtowels and platters. And to add a special touch to the collection, each piece features the likenesses of canine companions of the employees of Anthropologie and its parent company URBN. Completely reflective of McClellan’s artistic style, each doggie image is set against a multicolored graphic background.

Of the choice to feature dogs with a personal connection to the Anthropologie and URBN staff, McClellan says it was also a major collaborative effort.

“I thought it’d be extra special to have the dogs be connected to URBN,” he told Main Line Today. “But I deferred to Anthropologie executives’ judgment about what image should go on what. They know what sells.”

Fans of McClellan’s became well-acquainted with his artwork in Philadelphia’s White Dog Café, which features a floor-to-ceiling painting of the artist’s puppy Tip, one of the first large-sized pieces he sold.

If the enthusiastic reception that Bone Appetit has received thus far is any indication of what’s to come, anyone interested in canine-covered home goods should prepare to make their purchases early. According to McClellan, his signature towel sold out when the collection had a preview run during the holidays.

Bone Appetit will be available in Nordstrom and Anthropologie stores in the US and the UK, as well as on the Anthropologie website.
