Meet Our Artisans: Ann Sutherland

Designer/President

Dallas

As a successful interior designer, Ann Sutherland couldn't find outdoor fabrics with the designs, colors or textures that were appropriate for her high-end residential clients. Seeing an opportunity in the marketplace, she launched Perennials® Outdoor Fabrics to bring together great design, quality and premier performance. Today, 14 years later, Perennials are the preferred choice of leading design professionals worldwide for their extraordinary quality, beauty and durability. The exclusive designs for Restoration Hardware, woven of the company's trademarked 100% solution-dyed acrylic fibers, beautifully blend high performance with the soft, natural hand of premium indoor upholstery. Manufactured for exceptional longevity, they resist mildew and stay colorfast even after years of exposure to the sun. While Ann has achieved an unparalleled level of excellence in high performance textiles, she's never lost sight of her ultimate goal. As she states, "I'm pleased that I have helped create something that allows people to enjoy nature."
