Croscill Comforter - Croscill Comforter Sets
Credit Cary Grant with inspiring the Croscill comforters and bed spreads, as we know them today!
A market leader in the design and manufacture of home fashions for more than 50 years, Croscill named its first, and highly successful, line of decorator bedding after Grant's 1944 movie, "Arsenic and Old Lace."
A leader in innovation as well, Croscill has a tradition of creativity evidenced by dozens of machinery patents and first time industry introductions.
Cary and the comforter
The company introduced the decorative comforter in the late 1960s. Its "Arsenic and Old Lace" design took the function-over-fashion comforter from its plain, solid-color niche to a stylish alternative upon which to build a bedroom décor. Croscill offered matching accessories, such as bed skirts and window treatments, to complete the coordinated look. Put a Croscill bedspread in your room and you'll never lack matching accessories and accents!
Croscill furthered the drive for coordination in home decoration through the 1970s and ‘80s, introducing correlated collections of throw pillows, table rounds, lamps and shades, wallpaper and borders, and even decorative hardware for window treatments
By the end of the 1980s, Croscill offered consumers completely coordinated bedroom ensembles from curtains to scatter rugs, and everything in between.
Keeping up with the times, Croscill's newest bedding designs include oversized comforters to cover the newest high profile mattresses.
Window to the future
It all began in 1946, when Croscill introduced a design twist to the Priscilla window curtain, dubbing the new valance "Croscilla," for the way in which it spanned the entire window and covered the curtain rod.
Croscill's mix ‘n match kitchen curtains, its satin drapery program, and blouson valance were all company inventions that offered the consumer a new, and for many years, unparalleled flexibility in home decorating. Each style became an industry standard.
And for the bath ...
In the early 1990s, Croscill further cemented its presence in the home furnishings market with the addition of bath accessories and coordinating shower curtains and towels. The master bedroom and bath could now be completely coordinated!
