Check out some of the latest projects to come out of your local Calico locations. We take on every project that comes in from helping our customers pick the right designer fabrics for their latest project, to complete re-coverings.
In the late ’40s, two gentlemen from Bedford Village, New York, had an idea. While working with their friends in carriage trade showrooms and design houses, they noticed that thousands of yards of second-quality fabrics were being thrown out or given away. These fabrics, called seconds, had only slight imperfections in printing or weaving, but could not be sold by fabric merchants. So in 1948, they opened a small store and named it Calico. Customers told their friends about the unbelievable values on designer fabrics, and Calico grew rapidly from coast to coast. In the next 60 years, Calico grew to offer the world’s best collection of both first- and second-quality decorative fabrics, along with an unparalleled array of customized home decorating services to make it all happen beautifully. And with over 70 stores nationwide, they’re still able to offer these fabrics at just a fraction of the regular retail price.
All great rooms start with great fabric!
we’ve got you covered!
Whether you’re covering a pillow or decorating an entire room, Calico has you covered. You can purchase fabric and take it with you, or have our custom workrooms do all the work for you. Only at Calico will you find the combination of great fabric selections, experienced consultants and quality custom labor that make home decorating easy and affordable. We have thousands designer fabrics to choose from including upholstery fabrics and designs by top name designers. Plus we carry outdoor fabrics such as Sunbrella and Crypton for easy living inside and out. And with new shipments arriving weekly, our selection is always changing with new looks, new colors and new styles!
Experienced consultants will help you select and coordinate fabrics to find the look and feel you’re seeking to complete your ideal rooms. Consultants can also arrange to have window treatments, slipcovers, bedspreads, and upholstery made and installed. If you’re unsure about how a particular color, pattern, or texture will look with your existing decor, you can have a swatch cut from the bolt or even take the entire bolt home. And if you need a special order, but can’t afford to wait months for a fabric to arrive, you can order from our exclusive Brandywine Express Collection and have delivery guaranteed in 10 days or less. You can do it all yourself, have an in-store consultant offer decorating suggestions, or even let Calico consultants and custom crafters do all the work for you. Only at Calico can home decorators find the unique combination of selection, consultation, and customization that make decorating your home just as rewarding as sharing it with your friends and family will be.
I found Calico Sarasota thanks to being on Calico's mailing list since being a customer at Calico in New Jersey. I was so happy to discover they were close to our location in Sarasota! The people there are knowledgeable, professional, and experienced and give superb recommendations while taking my preferences and needs to heart. The people who came to deliver my furniture and do the installation were similarly expert and very pleasant to welcome into my home. I can only say positive things.
Betsy was great to work with. She spent a lot of time going through all of the different selections with us. Our living room and kitchen area look great with the new fabric window treatments we had installed while out of town. I highly recommend!!
Recently met Betsy and Neil from Calico Osprey. Betsy guided me through the choice of a beautiful crypton performance material to reupholster comfy but ugly green sofas. They reupholstered them in a gorgeous oatmeal color that completely transformed our Florida condo. They did a gorgeous job! Can’t wait to get our new draperies they are making! Betsy and Neil could not have been more professional or helpful! I highly recommend them! And will certainly go to them for my decorating needs!Jody
Great outcome. Love the fabric and installation was very professional. I have used Calico in KC, Portland, and now here in Sarasota and they always do an amazing job. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Betsy is wonderful to work with and her husband is a very talented installer.
Thanks so much to the folks at Calico Corners in Osprey for an outstanding job reupholstering my well loved (for over 40 years) teak dining room chairs. Material purchased at Calico Corners for the job was perfect and very reasonably priced. In stock too! My chairs were disassembled, new padding and seat bottoms added, freshly upholstered and reassembled. I was thrilled when I picked them up. They looked like they did when I purchased them for my first home. All staff I interacted with were friendly and very knowledgeable. If I could give more stars I would.
We redid almost all the blinds and shades in out 16 year old house. A big project, but turned out out great. The selection process went smoothly, new blinds were up about 6 weeks after we began the process. Prices for our Hunter Douglas blinds were competitive with Costco/Graber (not less, but not dramatically higher either).
Calico Corners has a great selection of fabrics and their customer service is outstanding. It is such a pleasure to work with the staff and they offer great suggestions. They are on time, workmanship is awesome and installation was perfect! My Hunter Douglas blinds and custom valance look great in my home!
