“Trim does for a room what jewelry does for an outfit. It adds the sparkle and little pops of color that are needed to truly make a room feel layered and well thought out. And, as with jewelry, I am never shy about piling it on.”

"Trim is the most luxurious, tasteful way to finish the look of any piece, and the limitless selection of beauty, craftsmanship, and colorful products by Samuel & Sons adds the perfect extra layer to ensure a design is extra special."

Le Jardin Silk Gimp in Sunflower

“This design of the Formal Dining Room for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas was meant to celebrate the point where antiquity and modernity converge, with modern moments amidst classic motifs, such as Passementerie, that have been celebrated for centuries. We partnered with Samuel & Sons as we needed something to finish off the Antique Louis XVI chairs in the dining room. The Samuel & Sons Gimp Trim provided a beautiful detailing that completed the chairs in a fantastic way."
