Clarence House is considered the foremost style-setter
in the decorative fabric industry and is the first choice
of many of the world's top interior designers.
The company was founded in 1961 by New York interior designer
Robin Roberts on the premise that design integrity was a
goal that could be achieved through uncompromising
artistry and technical quality.
Roberts felt that there was a void in many areas
of the home furnishings textile market.
Originally, he imported fabrics from Europe that had never
been seen in America. Eventually, Clarence House became
involved in every aspect of the creative process, with its
own design studio and in-house art director Kazumi Yoshida.
Yoshida, with a vast network of European mills and textile
archives at his disposal, still controls the evolution of each
design from the initial concept to the finished product.
Through the years, Clarence House has supplied the furnishing
fabrics for pre-eminent museums and countless historic houses
and has been consistently featured in every important design
and architectural magazine. Famous for its handscreen printing
of fabrics and wallpapers, high-style textures and hand-loomed
brocades, Clarence House also offers the highest quality velvets,
damasks, silks, cottons, linens, sheers, trimmings and leathers.
With headquarters in New York City at the D & D Building,
Clarence House is open to the trade only and its products are available exclusively through interior decorators, architects and designers.
