Spotlight on Schumacher Fabric & Wallcovering-Custom Design

Schumacher Fabrics 

The story of Schumacher showcases the wonder of the American dream. Frederic Schumacher started his business in 1889 in New York. A dozen or so years later, the company's fabrics graced high-profile locations such as the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and the White House.

Today Schumacher Fabrics is still a family-owned operation, with Frederic's great grandnephews, Gerald and Philip Puschel, on the board of trustees, and Gerald's sons, Andrew and Stephen, working in the business - the fifth generation to do so.

Their product line includes elegant fabrics, wallpaper, trims, furniture, accessories, rugs and carpets.

Why Schumacher chooses Toile fabrics?

Everything is always stylized and classic with a printed Toile. Originally produced in Ireland in the eighteenth century, the printed textile quickly became popular in Schumacher's arsenal of fabrics. Toile fabric was born in France when the German-born Christophe-Philipe Oberkampf opened a factory in Jouy-en-Josas in 1760.

Scumacher's designed décor lets the light in...

Schumacher mixed classic toile pillows with the clean lines of a striped fabric  as their choice for a tablecloth to create contemporary décor.

Schumacher Trimmings

Making colors pop while creating offsetting charm, Schumacher emphasizes adding  a bit of fringe to a favorite pillow or bed spread.
