FR Review:
The provenance of this firm is equally as impressive as its top-of-the line, custom-built, all hand-done upholstery and draperies. Today, A. Schneller Sons is led by fourth-generation principal Jon Schneller, whose great grand uncle started the business in 1881. While many New York decorators turn to this prestigious shop, we hear A. Schneller Sons is selective and careful not to overextend itself. Many commend its responsiveness, excellent craftsmen, and "incredibly" gracious service, which some say is the best there is.

Clients report that each piece is built by hand with "amazing attention to detail" and to the materials used, marveling that "even the frames are beautiful." New models are added to the extensive showroom frequently, and many are named for former clients; the "Astor sofa," the "Vanderbilt sofa," the "Whitney sofa." Their upholstery byline can be found often in Architectural Digest and Elle Decor attached to the work of such luminaries as Bunny Williams and Brian McCarthy; in fact, it's hard to pick up any esteemed design book or publication without seeing the name A. Schneller Sons. Fulfilling custom orders throughout the city and now internationally, the firm works only with the trade, with prices that reflect its five-star quality.

Representative Client Comments:
"Upholstery that is truly a work of art. The firm appreciates and understands elaborate designs." "Unquestionably one of the top companies around and very respected." "Jon is a gentleman." "Old-World style--it's hard to get better than this." "Only for the customer who appreciates the finest and can pay for it." "It will cost you a pretty penny." "Absolute top-of-the line custom built, all hand done. " "The proof as they say, is in the pudding."
