Company founders Crate and Barrel the married couple Gordon and Carole are real heroes, worthy of admiration and imitation. Once, in the distant 60s, having returned from their honeymoon to their native Boston, a young family with anxiety realized that there were no shops in the city selling modern and, most importantly, affordable household goods, which they had seen so much during their travels in Europe.
