  • 1978

    David Sutherland launched his first showroom in Houston

    A short time later, a second showroom was added in Dallas, where the 25,000-square-foot corporate headquarters is located today. The Los Angeles showroom opened in 1999 and underwent expansion in 2004 and again in 2014. Success with Sutherland’s proprietary products in Los Angeles, Houston and Dallas led to the opening of two more showrooms in New York’s well-known Design & Decoration building and the Design Center of the Americas in Dania Beach, Florida in 2005. This expansion was a natural progression in two major markets for Sutherland to showcase new indoor and outdoor collections to the interior design community.

  • 1994

    Launch of Sutherland Furniture

    This year marked the launch of Sutherland Furniture with an outdoor collection of 35 pieces introduced at the San Francisco Market. A collaboration between David Sutherland and internationally-acclaimed furniture designer John Hutton, this collection created a new niche in the outdoor furniture market. For the first time, innovative design defined exciting outdoor rooms that possessed all the comfort, style and utility of indoor spaces. Sutherland pioneered tailored-cushion “deep-seating” collections for the outdoors and was the first company to introduce fully-upholstered outdoor collections.

  • 1997

    The formation of a new company: Perennials

    Responding to a need by interior designers and architects for high-performance outdoor fabrics with indoor fabric design sensibilities, David Sutherland’s personal and professional partnership with his wife, Ann, led to the formation of a new company, Perennials. Partnering with John Hutton again, Perennials introduced comfortable colors, great hand and beautiful textures and patterns using 100% Solution Dyed Acrylics. Perennials’ trademark fiber design technology leads the industry with soil, stain and UV resistance while exceeding the demanding abrasion ratings required by the contract market.

  • 2006

    Perennials Textiles de Mexico was formed

    Perennials Textiles de Mexico was originally formed to store raw materials and produce sampling materials in a warehouse space in Toluca, Mexico. In 2008 Perennials purchased loom machines and set up a production facility in San Luis, Mexico. The mill was later expanded to include weaving, sampling, and storage under one state-of-the-art 60,000 square feet roof. PTM continues to increase fabric production, satisfying our growing retail partnerships.

  • 2013

    Perennials Rugs was born

    Though Perennials sold luxury performance rugs on a one-off basis prior, the brand expanded upon the category in 2013, creating a full collection of customizable made-to-order rugs and voila, Perennials Rugs was born! Over the years Perennials Rugs continues to push the envelope of weaving innovation and custom design, expanding performance into categories like Flat Weave, Tibetan Knot and Chenille drop stitch.

  • 2017

    International growth

    Sutherland Perennials Studio debuted in London’s Chelsea Harbour Design Centre, marking a significant milestone in international growth for both Perennials Fabrics and Rugs and Sutherland Furniture.

  • 2018

    New facility in India

    Perennials Rugs production received a makeover in the form of a new facility in India—Perennials Textiles India. In addition to renovating the original weaving facility in India, another building is built from the ground up to accommodate increased rug production and complete quality control. These facilities are owned and operated by Perennials.
