Crate & Barrel brand inclusive of LGBT community


By Anna Peirano

Crate & Barrel joins the growing list of companies to include LGBT related advertising in their marketing campaigns and publications. 

The most recent catalogue produced by the brand features a page  called “Us & Always,” curating ideas relating to a romantic night in with your loved one. The couple featured is two men using Crate & Barrel products as they prepare and enjoy a meal of wine and pasta. 

The page’s caption reads, “Spend a Saturday night at home, cooking together, dining together. Music, candlelight, and a good bottle of wine, and you can have the table as long as you like.”

Crate & Barrel joins other companies like Gap, Ray-Bans, Amtrak, Target, JC Penney, Urban Outfitters, Chevrolet, Expedia, and more in creating advertising featuring, supporting, and celebrating same-sex relationships.
