Case Study 3 Day Blinds
  • Challenge
  • In 2001, retailer/manufacturer 3Day Blinds was
    eager to differentiate itself in
    the highly-fragmented 6 billion window-covering
    industry and re-launch its business.
  • Solution
  • Associated Talent Management (ATM)
    represents designer, author, and
    Emmy-Award-winning television host Christopher
    Lowell and developed his highly regarded license
    brand of pre-coordinated  products for the home
    that today include alliances with retailers and
    manufacturers Office Depot, Shop NBC, Jo-Ann
    Craft Fabric Stores, Flexsteel, RED Textiles,
    Wrights, Leisure Arts and many others.
  • ATM engineered a relationship between 3 Day
    Blinds and Christopher Lowell to create an
    exclusive line of window coverings to compete
    with the then industry leader, Hunter Douglas.
  • Christopher Lowell became a spokesperson for 3Day
    Blinds in television commercials, print and other
    media and also promoted child safety in the
    window covering industry. Christopher appeared at
    major events, including book tours, show houses,
    employee functions, and media tours.
  • Outcome
  • 3 Day Blinds launched its Christopher Lowell
    Collection of window coverings in 2002 and
    quickly became the industry gold standard.
  • Five consecutive years of positive comps
  • 50 increase in revenue
  • 400 improvement in EBITDA
  • 500 increase in average order size
  • The Christopher Lowell Collection has helped
    expand 3 Day Blinds into strategic relationships
    with partners such as The Great Indoors, Sears,
    Interior Specialists, Jo-Ann Craft Fabric
    Stores, and Costco Wholesale.
  • 3 Day Blinds became the first (and remains the
    only) competitor in its field to introduce truly
    premium product lines with highly recognizable
    brands. Christopher Lowell leads this business,
    and the success of Christophers collection has
    led to branding relationships with Eddie Bauer,
    Laura Ashley, and others.
