Clarence House is considered one of the foremost style-setters in the decorative fabric industry and is the first choice of many of the world's top interior designers. Many of their fabrics Retail for well over $400 dollars per yard.
Headquartered in New York City's famed D&D Building, Clarence House has been at the forefront of the decorative fabric industry for over 40 years. They were founded in 1961 by New York designer Robin Roberts, who envisioned a company that would fill a void in the decorative fabric industry, a void that was created by the vast majority fabric companies refusing to take the necessary design risks to move the home decor business forward. Since the very beginning, Roberts has filled Clarence House's line of decorative fabrics with imported fabrics never before seen in America. It wasn't long after that that Clarence House decided to get involved in all aspects of the creative process by starting their own in-house design studio and making the now famous Kazumi Yoshida their head art director. To this day Kazumi still controls the evolution of each design from it's conception to the finished product.
Not long after becoming involved in the decorative fabric industry they were quickly becoming world renowned for there extremely unusual and opulent designs. Although they are most famous for their hand screen printing of fabrics and wallpapers, Clarence House also offers the highest quality velvets, brocades, damasks, silks, cottons, linens, sheers, trimmings and leathers. Throughout their years in the decorative fabric business they have supplied the fabrics for some of the world's most famous museums, residences, and historic sites. Their name appears just every issue of any important interior design magazine available; including Architectural Digest, Florida Design, and Veranda.
With 16 showrooms throughout the United States and additional showrooms in South Africa, Canada, and Australia; Clarence House is on a well-earned course to achieve world-wide design dominance.
Unfortunately, unless you are an Architect or an Interior Designer you cannot buy directly from them.
That is, of course, only true if you don't know the Design Diva. Having known the people at Clarence House for over 15 years she is able to purchase large amounts of exclusive decorative fabrics from them and bring them to you at extremely discounted prices.
