CHICAGO — Sixty years after establishing its now iconic brand with an iconic teapot, Crate & Barrel is marking six decades of retailing with a few reimagined tabletop best-sellers.

This month, Crate & Barrel is issuing its Marin dinnerware, Edge glassware and Ona pitcher in a black and white palette, and thanking customers for their loyalty with a sweepstakes offering a chance to win some of the company’s iconic pieces at all 77 of its stores. The sweepstakes take place every Saturday in September.

“Crate & Barrel has been welcomed into customers’ homes for generations, and we’re honored to be part of major milestones in their lives, from weddings to welcoming newborns to new homes,” said Alicia Waters, executive vice president of Crate & Barrel and Crate & Kids. “As we celebrate and reflect on our brand, we look forward to another 60 years of inspiring and serving our customers and helping them to build homes with purpose.”

Gordon and Carole Segal founded Crate & Barrel in 1962, a year after returning from their honeymoon eager to share the simple yet beautiful European imported home goods they encountered during their travels. Their first store on Chicago’s Wells Street displayed dinnerware sets and entertaining essentials atop wooden crates and barrels.

“We hadn’t seen anything in the U.S. like the classic designs we had come to love during our travels, so it was a prime opportunity to curate pieces we knew others would enjoy,” said Gordon Segal, co-founder of Crate & Barrel. “We could never have imagined how Crate & Barrel would evolve until we saw how much desire from consumers there was for a home goods destination like this.”

Today, Crate & Barrel Holdings Inc., now owned by the Otto Group, operates over 100 Crate & Barrel, CB2 and Hudson Grace stores throughout the U.S. and Canada, with franchise locations in nine countries, the company said, and more than 200 million customers visit its stores and websites each year.
