History of Schumacher

Schumacher patterns have long been woven into the fabric of American culture. 
In 1902, when Stanford White was selected by Theodore Roosevelt to strip away
the Victorian decor of the White House, he commissioned Schumacher to design a
shimmering lampas. Sixty years later, when Jackie Kennedy was putting her own
elegant and indelible stamp on the historic building, she turned to Schumacher
again. Schumacher has also played a part in the movies and TV starring in great
American classics like I Love Lucy and Gone with the Wind.


Schumacher has also been a source of inspiration for the world’s most 
legendary tastemakers: Edith Wharton, Elsie de Wolfe and Sister Parish all 
embraced Schumacher collections. Today, the design house remains a favorite go-to 
source for a new generation of designers because it has stayed with the pulse of
fashion, melding the best of Old World traditions with ever evolving modern tastes.
