Pottery Barn has long been a staple in many homes thanks to its wide variety of products for family members of all ages: babies, kids, teens, and adults. Now, the brand's latest line, The Accessible Home, has been designed with even more inclusivity in mind. Pieces in the collection, which launched on July 22, have been crafted to serve all customers, with a special emphasis placed on individuals with disabilities, those who are aging in place, and those are experiencing injuries.
"In our ongoing commitment to enhance the quality of lives at home we’re excited to now better serve our customers’ specific needs with The Accessible Home," Pottery Barn President Marta Benson said in a press release. "Our mission is to incorporate accessibility into everything we do—providing beautiful, thoughtful design that makes a home a more comfortable place for everyone."
The concept of aging in place has become especially popular within recent years and refers to senior citizens who have decided to stay in their family homes as they grow older rather than move to retirement communities. Thus, it is critical that these individuals find ways to modify their existing spaces to accommodate mobility challenges and other concerns that come about with age. The Accessible Home line has recognized this lifestyle trend and helps to bring about a solution for those who are in need of new furniture pieces to support their changing needs.
Like the rest of the brand's offerings, items that are a part of The Accessible Home line are well crafted and come in a variety of colors and finishes. Whether your style leans contemporary, rustic, or somewhere in between, there's truly something for everyone. Many of the pieces come in Pottery Barn's signature sophisticated neutral hues, which makes it easy to integrate a couple of pieces into an existing room without majorly altering your design scheme.

The bathroom can be one major area of concern for senior citizens and those with mobility issues.
