Joybird’s Limited Edition Barbie Collab Is Dreamhouse-Worthy
Barbiecore is here to stay. Partially inspired by next year’s “Barbie movie,” the nostalgic hot pink trend has infiltrated everything from clothing to home decor. And with Barbie’s Dreamhouse turning 60 this year, it’s just getting started.
In honor of that 60th anniversary, Mattel and its iconic doll collaborated with furniture brand Joybird to launch nine limited-edition furniture pieces to help you bring your very own Dreamhouse to life.
Since Joybird specializes in brightly colored, mid-century modern style pieces, it’s no wonder that the brand naturally aligned with Barbie’s original ‘60s Dreamhouse (which was full of the era’s trademark pastel, mid-century modern decor). The company is also based in California, befitting everyone’s favorite Malibu girl.
“The Barbiecore aesthetic truly aligns with Joybird’s love of color and creating bold and aspirational spaces that bring joy and empowerment to our customers,” Joybird’s director of merchandising, Gifty Walker, said in a release. “This collection has many of the Barbiecore hallmarks — think brave contrasting colors, chic marble, golden accents, curved lines, and endless style possibilities.”
Indeed, the Joybird x Barbie collaboration is so much more than just hot pink. It also takes plenty of inspiration from mid-century and art deco trends, providing an entry point for Barbiecore novices.
Known for their colorful sofas, it’s only fitting that Joybird is currently offering two Dreamhouse-inspired sofas: The Dreamhouse Lewis sofa ($1,875), which boasts roomy, pillow-topped cushions, and the Dreamhouse Chelsea sofa ($2,335), which sports gold capped legs and a tufted back. Both sofas are available in three jewel-toned colors: Rose Quartz, Ruby, and Topaz Teal.
If you’re looking for a conversation starter, consider the Dreamhouse Nikki Accent Chair ($1,289). Featuring a swivel base and tubular silhouette, the chair comes in a neutral Hampton Cream color fit for any number of home decor aesthetics.
And don’t worry — you can also bring the Barbiecore aesthetic to the bedroom with the Dreamhouse Camille Bed ($1,856-$2,156), a tufted, art deco-approved piece designed with beauty sleep in mind. It comes in Queen, Cal King, and Eastern King sizes.
