It seems we aren’t the only ones who are kind of obsessed with Diane Keaton. For her second collection with Crate & Barrel, designer Leanne Ford—you know her from the HGTV shows Restored by the Fords and, more recently, Home Again With the Fords—payed homage to the actor by naming a rounded armoire the Annie Natural Storage Cabinet. The name is a nod to Keaton’s Oscar-winning role in the 1977 film Annie Hall, although in an interview with People, Ford was sure to specify that the shoutout is for Keaton only, not the disgraced director Woody Allen.

The cabinet was “named after my love for Annie Hall, of course! Which we all know now really was just a love for Diane Keaton,” Ford told the publication. Feeling inspired by Keaton to make furniture somehow makes perfect sense to us; the actor’s homes have appeared on the cover of AD no less than three times, and she even wrote a book about design called The House that Pinterest Built.

Known for her love of black and white in both fashion and decor, Keaton could probably pick out a few pieces from Ford’s new collection that would fit her aesthetic, though the line also incorporates a lot of natural beige tones, like in the cabinet pictured above. Ford’s main inspiration came from “the Pennsylvania country life” she became reacquainted with when she relocated from Los Angeles to her native Pittsburgh during the pandemic, she told AD PRO earlier this month. “There’s a different quality of life that we dove into,” she said.
