More than 160 years later, enterprising young Holland & Sherry intern Bryan Dicker peddled the suit fabric swatches around Manhattan to interior design firms in a creative effort to increase sales. Designers embraced the concept, and a few years later Holland & Sherry Interiors was born. What started with a fabric kiosk in New York's D&D building has expanded significantly, with HQ in Peebles, Scotland, and 15 showrooms worldwide. Dicker now serves as president, and a stunning new showroom in Decorative FROM SAVILE ROW WITH LOVE K en Kehoe is still expanding his CV, after more than 20 years in the interior design biz.
