Pottery Barn is a United States-based home furnishing store chain with retail stores in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, the Philippines and Australia. Pottery Barn is a wholly owned subsidiary of Williams-Sonoma, Inc. since September 1986, when it was purchased from GAP, Inc.

The Pottery Barn was co-founded in 1949 by Paul Secon and his brother Morris. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California. Pottery Barn also operates several specialty stores under the titles Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen. Pottery Barn has two retail catalogues, the traditional Pottery Barn catalogue and Pottery Barn Bed + Bath to focus only on its bed and bath lines.
