David Sutherland opened his first Showroom in Houston, Texas in 1978, followed by the Flagship Showroom in Dallas, where Perennials and Sutherland, LLC is now headquartered.

A pioneer in the design community, Sutherland was the first to bring high-end designs from New York and Los Angeles to the booming Texas market. Over the following decades, Sutherland expanded into LA, New York, Dania and Chicago, a natural progression for Sutherland to showcase new indoor and outdoor collections to the interior design community.

Today, Sutherland continues to collaborate with the world’s design luminaries whiles expanding their offerings with new materials and innovative methods of manufacturing and craftsmanship.

Meanwhile, Perennials product designers stretch the boundaries of possibility using the company’s trademark 100% solution-dyed acrylic fibre; innovations in yarns, construction and new product categories provide a springboard into fabrics, rugs, trims and specialty embroidery products to inspire the design community. David now serves as Chairman of the Board, alongside wife Ann Sutherland as CEO.
