Cornerstone Brands: Our Foundation for Growth

Grandin Road is part of Cornerstone Brands, Inc. (CBI), a family of direct marketers that ranks among this country's top ten consumer direct firms. Our partnership with CBI allows us to retain our unique marketing and brand identity while enjoying the advantages of improved operational capability and greater purchasing power.

In September 1991, Cornerstone mailed its first catalog, Frontgate, to 300,000 upscale American households. The aim of this new direct marketing company was to offer these consumers products and services of unprecedented quality. Since that time, Cornerstone has enjoyed tremendous growth. In 1996, we were recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the nation's 500 fastest growing companies.

A Rising Star in Quality Home Decor

The debut issue of Grandin Road was sent in March 2003. We nationally distribute tens of millions of catalogs every year, but size alone is not the measure of our success. Rather, it is the faithful adherence to our founding principles:

  • Provide our customers with long-term value in every product they purchase
  • Build recognition for our brands by excelling at everything we do
  • Engage in business practices that benefit everyone involved
  • Create a working climate that calls forth the best in every employee
  • Fully capitalize on emerging technologies
  • Maintain our vitality and self-reliance by implementing change rather than reacting to it
