Our Inspiration Behind ... The Yorktown
On April 19, 1943, the USS Yorktown became one of the 24 Essex-class aircraft carriers commissioned to serve in WWII, and less than a year and a half later, she began a series of offensive campaigns in the Pacific Theatre. Fondly dubbed America's "Fighting Lady," the USS Yorktown remained in service for twenty-seven years and retired with sixteen battle stars. Today she acts as a museum ship at Patriot's Point, and even on an overcast day, she can be seen looming over Charlestown Harbor. Strength, resilience, and pride are etched into the very lines of her deck. The weight of the history she witnessed and influenced echoes through her hull. The USS Yorktown is a model of craftsmanship and precision, and the stories of her crews and the battles they fought inspire us.
Our design for the Yorktown vanity boasts a familiar battleship grey. The clean lines and defined edges of the Yorktown vanity were inspired by similar features found aboard the "Fighting Lady" herself. We hope you remember this story as you create your own L & K look with the Yorktown Vanity.
