Houston’s Secret Carpet Bar

Historic Savile Row House Thinks of Everything in its Bayou City Debut

BY // 01.11.17

Historic Savile Row fabric house Holland & Sherry has been known for its fine cloths for men’s bespoke suiting since 1836. More than 160 years later, enterprising young Holland & Sherry intern Bryan Dicker peddled the suit fabric swatches around Manhattan to interior design firms in a creative effort to increase sales.

Designers embraced the concept, and a few years later Holland & Sherry Interiors was born. What started with a fabric kiosk in New York’s D&D building has expanded significantly, with HQ in Peebles, Scotland, and 15 showrooms worldwide. Dicker now serves as president, and a stunning new showroom in Decorative Center Houston is the latest addition.

In addition to their fine linen and wool fabrics, Holland & Sherry Interiors offers custom embroidery, handmade rugs, wall coverings, leather, trim, lighting, and hardware.

The new showroom, headed by Micah Spaniel, adheres to the age-old Savile Row tradition of offering customers a nip of scotch or shot of espresso while they shop — a handsomely outfitted bar is hidden behind a secret door of carpet samples.
