- Founded: 1948
Calico Corners has evolved dramatically since it was founded as a modest little store in 1948 in Bedford Village, New York. Then, Calico Corners specialized in selling seconds of designer fabrics - when a huge gulf existed between what was available to the trade and what was available to consumers at retail. If you wanted high - quality fabrics, you had to go to an interior designer. Fast - forward sixty years. Calico Corners sells first - quality designer fabrics & custom upholstered furniture and custom labor to turn our beautiful fabrics into beautiful finished products. In our stores, fabrics are color coordinated to make decorating easy. And if you need extra help, we even come to your home. Now, Calico Corners is the source for many of the same decorative fabrics you could once only purchase through interior designers. And since we buy directly from the same mills and print houses, we are an extraordinary value. We are such a good value that thousands of interior designers use Calico Corners as their fabric resource. We have grown to 115+ retail stores - selling to everyone - because of our passion to be the best retailer of decorative fabrics in the United States.
