Pottery Barn - The history

In 1949, Paul Secon and his brother Morris co-founded Pottery Barn in West Chelsea, Manhattan. Paul Secon found three barns full of pottery from the factory of Glidden Parker in Alfred, New York who had stored extras and seconds up the road from the business. The Secon brothers established their chain up to seven stores. in 1966, Paul sold his share and in 1968 Morris sold his to two outside partners. The new owner increased the chain to 13 stores before selling it to The Gap in 1984. The company was later contracted to Williams-Sonoma in September 1986.

In 1987, its mail-order catalog was first published.

In 2017, the company launched an augmented reality app for iOS that enabled users to virtual place Pottery Barn products into a room and save room design ideas.

The company headquarter is located in San Francisco, California. Pottery Barn also runs several specialty stores under the titles Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen. Pottery Barn has two retail catalogs, the traditional Pottery Barn catalog, and Pottery Barn Bed + Bath to concentrate only on its bed and bath lines.
