London Design Festival 2016

The London Design Festival is less than a week away. This year, we will join 120 new exhibitors as we make our Decorex debut. Visitors can expect a beautifully crafted “library” showcasing an extensive display of passementerie.

“We’ve incorporated a nod to the Neo-Classical architecture of Syon House to recreate a library from a great House where someone from a Grand Tour would come to muse over their collection of exquisite treasures and antiquities.  A place of learning and researching, a place to study 100’s of collected samples and understand their beauty.”

We offer our sincerest thanks to our friends at The Odd Chair Company, Lewis & Wood, Amtico and Fontaine for their contributions to our display.


London Design Festival Decorex International

 In advance of our Decorex International debut, we’ve had the great honor to hear from renowned designer Nina Campbell and her thoughts on our trimmings, our showroom and our participation in Decorex 2016.


Make plans to pop by our showroom during the London Design Festival for FOCUS/16. Enjoy a glass of fizz, delicious canapes and look at our new La Terre, Le Soir and Saisons collections of trimmings and tiebacks.

Lenox Hill Neighborhood House Spring Gala

Each year, in a spectacular display of creative talent, top interior design firms gather in support of Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, one of New York’s premier  non-profit organizations. The annual Spring Gala affords designers a chance to stretch their imaginations within the boundaries of a table top for ten.

In celebration of “A Century of Design” each firm brought a designated design period to life through a carefully curated display of dinnerware, linens, florals and an impressive dedication to every detail. We were honored to see Samuel & Sons trimmings among these exquisite details, supporting several firms through donations of tapes, tassels, fringes and tiebacks.
