No crates or barrels… just the finest in contemporary, affordable housewares and furnishings to define and decorate your modern home.
In the 1960s, a young Chicago couple returned from their honeymoon. They lamented that there was no place at home to buy the modern housewares they admired during their European travels.
Passionate to change that, the couple leased a space, hired an employee, and traveled Europe purchasing wares from artisans of glass, ceramics, copper pots, textiles and more. With no money left for displays, they showcased items on stacked crates and filled barrels. And thus a concept was born!
Today, Crate and Barrel has everything for the well-equipped and well-styled home. From tabletop and kitchen necessities, to rugs, lighting, garden and patio furnishings, bedding and bath linens, small appliances, decorative accessories, furniture and more.
Throughout the season, throughout the house, there’s always something new at Crate and Barrel.
