Company History

Tapestries, Ltd. has seen two generations of family ownership that is passionate about fresh and classic living, customer service, exceptional value and superior quality. We are inspired by travel, a garden tour, a museum, a customer. Our line is timeless, but is constantly changing to reflect new traditions and relaxed French living and refreshing delights.

Founded in 1973 by Nancy Herman, the journey began in a single room of the Herman home. Nancy created Tapestries, Ltd. so that tapestries could be available to consumers, not just to museum curators. She offered a complete line of tapestries that included European jacquard woven and hand woven tapestries. Quickly known as an innovator in the industry, Nancy added finials and custom-cut-rod sets to accent each piece, and featured hand painted finials in vintage colors as well as antiqued gold leaf finishes. Fabric tassels (tiebacks) were the next finishing touch. Ordered with custom cut rods and brackets, installation was as easy as hanging a curtain rod. Bursting at the seams, Nancy opened showroom doors, then an office building. Soon the product line featured a full line of coordinating accessories, including accent pillows, extra long table runners, bell pulls, throws, tablecloths, and wall décor (which can be viewed when you visit our showroom).

Through the years, Tapestries, Ltd has changed with the times, but remains a steadfast fixture. We have preserved the best of Tapestries, Ltd. while taking an exciting turn in a new direction by designing and manufacturing our French LInen Collection.This collection rolls out fresh, relaxed designs that tell natural stories or were inspired by Parisian flea market finds. The pieces are stretched over a wood frame for a clean, crisp look for a centuries old art form. United States artisans and craftsmen create every piece in this collection. We love supporting our US economy.

We are turning forty, but are not showing our age! We work feverishly, love finding beauty in unexpected places, embrace the bends in the road, and are grateful to our loyal customers.Tapestries, Ltd...where timeless design and modern living come together.
