NEW YORK, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Poppin (www.poppin.com), a design-focused yet affordable workstyle company, announced today the expansion of their national wholesale program to include top tier retail partnerships with The Container Store, Crate & Barrel and Urban Outfitters. At the same time, Poppin is expanding its presence in Staples stores to 1,200 locations nationwide.

Launched in September 2012, Poppin, Inc. intends to be the first consumer brand that makes buying, using, looking at and thinking about office products an extraordinary experience.

Launched to bring modern design and color into a stagnant office products/school supply market, it is not surprising that Poppin is being embraced by top retailers for the Back-to-School season, which is second only to Christmas in spending.  Therefore, it is essential that major retailers bring in new, exciting products that speak to the demands of parents and students.  Millennials, the last of whom are now in high school and college, are seeking products that allow them to express their personal style and beliefs. "For Millennials, every day is an opportunity for self-expression through design and color," says Poppin CMO Michael Chauliac. "Poppin products combine thoughtful design and vibrant color with the quality and functionality students need and expect from their supplies."

With Back-to-School season already underway, Poppin products can be found in these key retailers:

Dorm Decor Hot Spots: Crate & Barrel, The Container Store and Urban Outfitters

In May 2014, Poppin launched in some of the most popular names in dorm room decor: Crate & Barrel, The Container Store, and Urban Outfitters. Poppin products are currently available in all Crate & Barrel and Container Store locations as well as select Urban Outfitters stores. Each retailer has curated unique product assortments to speak to their specific customer bases.

School Supplies for All Ages: Staples
