Samuel & Sons Passementerie has long been a coveted source for the finest quality trimmings such as tassels, borders, braids, gimp, fringes and more. Interior designers and architects around the world have come to rely on the quality and selection available in stock. Innovation, variety and availability have long been the keys to Samuel & Sons' success. Introducing exclusive collections with diverse materials such as silk, wool, grass and wood has led to its selection of over 15,000 trims being eagerly sought after by designers and architects for both residential and hospitality interiors.


Headquartered in New York City, Samuel & Sons is a family-owned company that was founded more than three quarters of a century ago. Continuing the trimming design legacy, Sam Cohen, along with his two eldest sons, Michael and Hymie, take great pride in creating original designs to reflect both traditional and modern styles. Classics are interpreted with a modern twist, and traditional items are given new life. With generations of experience, Samuel & Sons' dedication to the design trade is unparalleled. The Samuel & Sons flagship showroom, located next to the heralded D&D building in Manhattan, opened its doors after relocating from New York's famed Garment District to be closer to the interior design community. The five-story building at 983 Third Avenue took over two years to complete, but the outcome was a stunning two-story showroom with an incredible selection of trimming. Shortly thereafter, Samuel & Sons opened a second showroom in Chicago's famous Merchandise Mart as an extension of its elegant flagship New York showroom. Most recently, Samuel & Sons launched a third showroom in London's esteemed Chelsea Harbour Design Centre. With more than 15,000 items to choose from, there is no other place that an interior design professional will find with a selection that rivals Samuel & Sons. Most importantly, Samuel & Sons carries nearly everything in stock, which is available for immediate delivery.


In addition to the in-stock collection, Samuel & Sons has expanded its offerings to include custom trim. Whether making adjustments to an already existing collection or creating a designer's vision from scratch, the Custom Department provides one of a kind design that can be delivered in a timely fashion.


Further, Samuel & Sons has partnered with top designers to craft cutting-edge collections that offer a fresh approach to passementerie. This includes celebrated designer Lori Weitzner, who has crafted groundbreaking collections using materials such as hand-blown glass, cultured pearls, precious gems and exotic woods. Samuel & Sons has also introduced its first line with world-renowned designer Michael S. Smith whose acclaim includes selection as interior designer of the United States White House under the Obama administration. Michael's intricately constructed vision introduces a contemporary take on classic styles. Samuel & Sons is also launching a new line with Roger Thomas, Executive Vice President of Design for Wynn Resorts, continuing its collaborative tradition.


Samuel & Sons' products are available at their New York, Chicago, and London showrooms, as well as in various representative showrooms worldwide.
