Your options for creating one-of-a-kind upholstered furnishings just doubled thanks to a collaboration between industry leaders Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams and Kravet.

Who wouldn’t want more options with a faster delivery time? That dream comes true as Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams doubles the number of high-end Kravet fabrics available at its retail stores. And because the pieces are crafted stateside—in North Carolina—delivery time is only 10 to 12 weeks.
“Kravet is a remarkable brand known in the industry for its spectacular fabrics,” says Allison O’Connor, president and CEO of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. “We’re both brands that approach customers and service with innovation and quality design.” For consumers, customer-friendly Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams stores make it an easier shopping prospect than to-the-trade showrooms. “We’re a relationship brand,” she says. “When a customer comes in, our design associates greet them and start with a series of questions. That’s been our approach since we opened.”

The seven collections available for customization are inspired by nature, with names like Sky, Twilight, Slate and Seagrass. “There’s a fine line between a wide assortment and an overwhelming amount of choice,” says Mitchell Gold, co-founder and chairman of the company. “When you come into our showrooms, it’s a very manageable number.” Better yet, 193 of the fabrics are high-performance, so those beautiful pieces stand up to the wear and tear of everyday family life. “We see this partnership and the products we’re offering as really beautiful design meets performance and livability,” says O’Connor. “It’s a welcome option for the way people are living today.” 210 Lafayette St., mgbwhome.com; kravet.com
