collection company consists bed

Jessica McClintock furniture from American Drew, which debuted in October 2000 with a 50-piece collection entitled, “Jessica McClintock Home – The Romance Collection," represents an extension of the Jessica McClintock brand’s signature quality of old-fashioned romance into the world of home furnishings. Said to be inspired by antique pieces in the designer’s own San Francisco home, the collection features bedroom and dining room furniture with extensive hand carving, rounded shapes and delicate accents.

In spring 2010, American Drew brought out a second line inspired by Jessica McClintock called, “Couture Collection” which makes use of mirror, leather and marble veneers, fashion jewelry accents and 1940s silhouettes.

Additionally, Jessica McClintock Inc. collaborates with Lea Industries on The Jessica McClintock Youth Collection which incorporates the brand’s romance aesthetic into bedroom sets for girls, and with Simmons Kid’s Furniture on the Cradle Me Collection and the Timeless Collection, two classically styled lines of baby furniture.

History of Jessica McClintock, Inc

Jessica McClintock was a sixth grade teacher in 1969 when she took $5000 from the insurance she had received upon the recent death of her husband and bought a partnership in a clothing company called Gunne Sax. Gunne Sax did everyday clothes for flower children, but McClintock was interested in a more upscale product line that combined the hippie aesthetic with expensive fabrics. McClintock’s designs were quickly picked up by fashionable department stores like Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue, and her company expanded into bridal, designer, missy, junior and children’s wear divisions.
Jessica McClintock, Inc.’s licensing division began in 1991 with the Young at Heart bed and bath line. In 1996, the company signed a license with Barth & Dreyfuss for kitchen accessories and in 1999 it began its collaboration with American Drew for Jessica McClintock furniture.
