HI THERE!

We're Coton Colors


We create products to help you “never miss an opportunity to celebrate every day.” That's Founding Artist and CEO, Laura Johnson's motto and it has inspired every facet of our brand. Laura started Coton Colors more than 20 years ago with the help of her family {The very first Coton Colors products came to life in her garage, where she would pour the molds, fire the pottery, and hand paint each piece herself!}

Coton Colors consists of a full product offering for all {and we mean all!} of one’s celebrating needs. All of our designs are inspired by Laura’s lifestyle and designed to encourage people to celebrate their life’s milestones - big and small.

BEHIND

Our Designs


Coton Colors products are all artfully designed out of the Corporate Office and Design Center in Tallahassee, Florida. Our talented design team hand draws all patterns, selects our unique color ranges and create exclusive shapes on which to apply the patterns. The finished designs are coveted pieces for many discerning hostesses, collectors, and gift-givers, inspiring all to embody the celebratory Coton Colors lifestyle.

A Family

BUISNESS

To make Coton Colors a successful endeavor, Laura relied on her family ties from the start when she founded the company in Tallahassee, Florida in 1997. Her husband supported the artist’s dreams and high-intensity lifestyle, while her parents and siblings swooped in to help fulfill the ever-piling orders and bring balance to the chaos of an early business. Laura credits the success of Coton Colors to the family foundation, which still stands today.


Laura's oldest daughter, Kyle Johnson Smith, sits at the design helm as Creative Director, working alongside her mom to create products that inspire celebrations.

Laura’s middle daughter, Sara Kate, works beside her as a collaborator in fashioning and capturing fresh styles through photography and video.

Laura's youngest daughter, Mary Parker, is the Strategic Marketing Associate, working as a liaison between the Flagship Stores and the corporate office.

Two of Laura’s nieces have added their unique talents in helping Coton Colors grow. Taylor owns and operates the Atlanta Flagship Store while Courtney is the Finance Director.

Laura’s mother, Dee and sister, Marcie run the Tampa and Tallahassee Flagship Stores, while her father remains the company’s CFO.

Celebrate

EVERYDAY

"Life moves so quickly and we find ourselves in a world that values busyness and productivity without taking the little time we have to savor it. Life is full of celebrations, if we merely look for them. A new dish you experience. Things your children say. How something made you feel.

For years I've been filling lined notebooks with small observations, encounters, and celebrations, just a quick sentence or two with the date. When looking through them, it amazes me how quickly I had already forgotten, especially the little things.

A few years ago, I designed our Celebrate Every Day Book, not just to capture life's worthy moments, but also to train us to find the noteworthy moments in the midst of a chaotic life. Don't worry about having a fancy pen or perfect penmanship. The pressure is off."
