The Home Depot Introduces Home Decor Catalog

BY CSA STAFF

Chicago, The Home Depot is aiming to attract more female customers and soften up its image with its new catalog-only home decor business, according to a report by The Chicago Tribune. The Home Depot Direct catalog features merchandise vignettes and has Pottery Barn-like overtones. The similarities were acknowledged by Harvey Seegers, president of Home Depot Direct.

“I wouldn’t say we are trying to create the Williams-Sonoma (Pottery Barn’s parent) look and feel, but it is designed to be a high-end presentation, the kind that people associate with Williams-Sonoma,” said Seegers in the article.
