We are experts. Our in-store and in-home consultants are fabric and design specialists. Anything involving fabric – window treatments, upholstered furniture, custom bedding, pillows, cushions and more – is our specialty. We’ll help you coordinate fabrics, colors and texture, and suggest designer touches that make all the difference. And while we don’t sell paint and carpet, we have the knowledge to help with most every facet of your project.
We know how to discover your decorating style. Many interior designers have a style all their own – which may or may not be yours. Instead, we ask questions that reveal your tastes. We ask what you already have and want to keep. Then we utilize the largest retail fabric selection around to find the look that family and friends will say is all you.
We offer a superb selection. Calico has 10,000 fabrics, so your paint box isn’t limited. As one of the largest fabric buyers in the nation, we have special access to the top weaving mills and print houses – and the best prices too. We even have performance fabrics that work beautifully for both indoor and outdoor use.
We are budget conscious. We have a proud history of great values in fabric and custom labor. That’s why Calico’s extensive selection of luxurious fabrics is 20-60% off designer prices from to-the-trade showrooms. And why our design services are free*!

Quote: "There are so many people out there who know what they like when they see it, but don't know how to pull that look together. What I love most about being a designer is being able to help people pull a look together that fits their own personal style and home perfectly."
Calico designer since 2009
Quote: "Recently, I was inspired by a phrase 'Find joy in the journey.' The design process is a journey, both psychologically and aesthetically. With the right design professional by your side, you can find this ‘journey’ both enjoyable and inspiring. Being able to streamline the process for my clients allows them to truly enjoy the process."

Quote: "Every project is custom and unique, as is every client. Once we hone in on a color palette and style, the excitement begins. It's amazing how fabrics can evoke such emotion in us!"

Quote: "I want to connect with the customer on a deeper level to understand their vision. Building a relationship is very important as a first step. I try to learn the customer's personality and passions, and use that to create ideas. I believe listening is the key in creating a successful project for a client."
