If you’re not a design aficionado chances are you may never have heard of passementerie, but I guarantee you’ve seen it.
Passementerie is the French word for the art of making elaborate trimmings or edgings out of braid, gold or silver cord or embroidery. You know the look, beautiful tassels or fringe added to a couch, chair or curtain in the style of a Renaissance castle. While it might sound like a tradition of yesteryear, passementerie is still very much in vogue and the delicate finishings are sought after by interior designers all around the world.
Samuel & Sons Passementerie is one of the country’s leading designers of fine interior design trimming and thanks to our very own Culp Associates, Dallasites can now view and purchase their sought after tassels, borders, braids, gimp, fringes and more right here in the District.
Culp Associates, known for representing an incredible collection of high-end textile collections as well as furniture, trimmings and lighting, is the perfect home for Samuel & Sons in Dallas.
Samuel & Sons is a family-owned company founded more than 75 years ago. Years of experience, a wealth of top designers plus a knack for business and an intimate knowledge of the consumer have made the NYC based company world-famous. Over 20,000 trims, all of them usually in-stock, makes Samuel & Sons collection of designs one of the industry’s best.
After perusing some of the gorgeous pictures myself, I’m as thrilled as Culp Associates that we have Samuel & Sons gorgeous designs in the District. I’m in love with their designer’s ability to express both traditional and modern design in their collections.
