A milestone for our London showroom set the stage, and our creative wheels in motion, in the months leading up to London Design Week 2018. Beyond showcasing the latest designs for Spring 2018, Creative Director Milton De Paul was among the talented tastemakers chosen to participate in the Legends at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour. This series of visionary window displays and showcases offered visitors “a voyage of discovery on every floor.”
Our five years in London, a period which has seen tremendous growth, prestigious awards and successful showings at both Paris Déco Off and Decorex, inspired a series of five exquisite cakes. Taking cues from five collections having launched between 2014 and 2018, our window display of beaded, embroidered and tassel-trimmed confections paid tribute to the Gala, Shangri-La, La Terre, Oberon and Cirque collections.
Behind-the-scenes moments captured during the creation of each design…

Annually running alongside Maison & Objet every January, Paris Déco Off is a key event in the interior design calendar which attracts an international crowd of industry professionals and press eager to view the latest collections from the industries’ finest and most innovative brands. We were proud to present our new Spring 2018 collections—Cirque, Hair On Hide, Couture and Matelassé—at this year’s show.
The creative team arrived with a vision, and more pom poms than one could count. Upon arrival in Paris, they set out to transform a gallery space in Saint Germain into an unforgettable pop-up showroom. The concept would center around a white Wisteria tree placed in the middle of the gallery so as to take advantage of its soaring ceilings. Using elements from the Cirque collection, hundreds of pom-pom tendrils were created and suspended above two bespoke pom-pom poodles—a nod to France’s national dog.
The collections were met with praise and we had the pleasure of welcoming Lori Weitzner into the showroom on more than one occasion. Guests donned the hats from our Couture ad campaign, posing for Polaroid snapshots—the perfect, pocket-sized mementos of their visit to our Paris pop-up.
New collections for Spring 2018 are set to debut at Paris Déco Off. Our plans for this five-day celebration include a spectacular display of trimmings inside our pop-up showroom at 26 Rue Bonaparte. Cirque, Hair on Hide and Matelassé as well as Couture, a new collection by Lori Weitzner, will be shown January 18 – 22.

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.”
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.

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.
In advance of West Week 2016, we’re celebrating the official grand opening of our LA showroom at the Pacific Design Center with two very special guests.
