Since 1889 the family-owned Schumacher company has been synonymous with style, taste and innovation. The Schumacher collections are comprehensive, with an extraordinary range united by respect for classicism, an eye for the cutting edge and an unparalleled level of quality. A passion for luxury and an unwavering commitment to beauty are woven into everything we do.
In some sense the Schumacher aesthetic has been woven into the US history and lifestyle: e.g., in 1902 US President Roosevelt chose renowned architect Stanford White to redecorate the White House and White chose Schumacher to design a satin lampas; in 1962 Jackie Kennedy chose a Schumacher lampas for the Blue Room; in 1913 Pulitzer Prize winner and decorating connoisseur Edith Wharton chooses Schumacher’s designs as does Elsie de Wolfe, often considered as the first professional decorator.
Schumacher also collaborated with the top names in the field of design and architecture: e.g., in 1947 acclaimed Viennese designer and architect Josef Frank creates the inimitable botanical Citrus Garden for Schumacher; in the same year designer, Vera Neumann, whose patterned scarves have been worn by Princess Grace of Monaco Kelly and Marilyn Monroe, began a long and fruitful corrabolation with Schumacher with designs still in production today; in 1955, America’s possibly greatest arhitect developed an interior textile collection for Schumacher, the Taliesin, which remains coveted by private collectors and museums alike; in 1958 Schumacher collaborates with avant-garde couturier Elsa Schiaparelli with graphic florals and pinks.
The list of collaborations goes on. Recent collaboratiions include renowned designers Kelly Wearstler and Mary McDonald. The Schumacher range includes fabrics for curtains and upholstery, both for indoor and outdoor usage, wallcoverings and trimmings.
