Online Design Tools You Need to Know

With all of the tech tools at our fingertips, we’re working and producing at a faster rate than ever. Several of our partners in the industry have harnessed the power of online design tools to streamline the process of creating, customizing and organizing. From the comfort of your home or office, create your own custom trim in a few simple steps, or piece together elements of your next drapery hardware order and produce simple-to-share quotes.

Two respected brands are making online innovation a part of their business model: Samuel & Sons and The Finial Company. Among our favorite online tools, these can benefit designers as well as clients by providing a clearer picture of special order product and making it easier than ever to submit orders.

The Simplicity of Semi Custom

Samuel & Sons Semi Custom Program is groundbreaking in its simplicity. No longer committed to the standard collection colors, choose an element of your design as inspiration to begin. Using the Semi Custom book as a reference for color selection, you will specify your trim, one of three fibers and choose from an unlimited combination of colors.

 


Semi Custom Program | Online Design Tools


The Samuel & Sons Semi Custom online design tool lets you specify custom colors for each portion of the trim. When you’ve completed your trim design, you will print/save a Tear Sheet for your records and submit a request for the Pre-Production Approval Form. Once submitted, you will receive a sample of the specified fiber, yarn reelings for each fiber in the exact colors and a color rendering of your design. Semi Custom orders can be ready in as little as four weeks.

Fabrics | The Classics
THE CLASSICS: Small Prints

To quote KDR Sales Representative Kim Caldwell, “For many designers, this scale of print is essential when layering classic interiors properly.” Her explanation accompanied the presentation of a new book of small-scale prints from Colefax and Fowler. Oaken offers a comprehensive range of styles, from the classic Seafern to a more modern, geometric Mazely. She noted their brilliant approach to color, touching on both warm and cool neutrals, in addition to classic reds, blues, greens and yellows.

Kim added, “With the popularity of plains on large upholstery pieces, designers incorporate small prints to give the room depth and dimension.” She imagines these prints on pillows, slipcovers, on dining room chairs, window treatments and in bedrooms as bed skirts and duvets.
