Brand & Licensing

Since 1936, The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation has created distinctive licensed products by partnering with leading manufacturers in the furniture, fabric, and gift industries, just to name a few. Through our creative initiatives, we continue to share the iconic design influence of Colonial Williamsburg with all generations.

Our Process

Our thoughtfully curated product collections are inspired from the hands-on traditions of 18th-century makers and pull artistic details from the rich archives of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. By blending our historic inspiration with modern influences, we help to create welcoming environments and moments filled with authenticity and meaning.

Giving Back

Sales of WILLIAMSBURG products support the preservation, research, and educational programs of the non-profit Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the largest living history museum in the country. Help support our mission to ensure that the stories and experiences of Colonial Williamsburg will not be lost to time.



Craft & Forge


Classic. Timeless. Authentic. Our flagship brand began in 1936 with dinnerware reproduced directly from antique pieces found on site in Colonial Williamsburg and has grown into a multi-faceted, interpretive brand. With our fresh traditional approach, we combine elements from our rich archives with modern colors, materials, and techniques to seamlessly blend historic design into how we live today.


Designer in Residence is a collaborative initiative established by WILLIAMSBURG which celebrates the historic and iconic design influence of Colonial Williamsburg.
