Mariella’s Custom Drapery has completed close to 4,000 projects over the past four decades creating a proud history built on an impeccable reputation for high quality work and treating their clientele like family.
Founded in 1982 by Mariella Trentacoste, Mariella’s Custom Drapery has focused on providing unique drapery solutions and decorative fabric accents to residential and commercial designers and builders, as well as homeowners. Mariella, who has earned many design awards for her work over the years, was born and raised in Italy and takes great pride in creating environments through the creative use of fabrics, drapery, window coverings and more.
The team at Mariella’s Custom Drapery is as excited about the future as they are proud of their past. They have created the new MCD brand which adapts to the expectations and demands of their clientele while maintaining the high standards expected from their work.
“With an eye for detail, sophistication, and functionality, my passion is creating beautiful quality window coverings and textiles for an office, hotel, spa, healthcare facility, multifamily housing, skilled nursing center, retail space, commercial property, or a home,” said Mary Grace Dickson, the daughter of Mariella and a second-generation owner. “Whether it is working with skilled designers, architects, builders, or clients to accomplish their vision, my team and I love bringing ideas to life through textile design and quality artisan products.”
Dickson’s devotion to her craft includes giving her clients the highest level of attention to detail and service to every project. Their products are made above and beyond industry standards using only the highest quality raw materials.
“Our focus is on building our brand while carrying on our founder’s legacy,” said Dickson, who not only grew up in the family business but also earned a degree in interior design and architecture from Wayne State University.
This combination sets Mariella’s apart and provides a unique value to their clients that not only helps sell products but creates a partnership in managing projects.
“We are taking the business to the next generation and the next level by offering what we call a panel program that offers top-selling products and designs that are cost effective yet still created with the high-quality work that we made our name on,” Dickson said.
Mariella’s creates all their own custom drapery, Roman shades, valances, bedding, pillows and more in their U.S.-based workroom. They are hands-on from start to finish and manage every detail, from inspiration to installation and beyond. Their clientele includes many celebrities and high-profile in state and out of state residents.
From window coverings, bedding, blinds, partitions, drapery, cornice boards to bench seating, Mariella’s team has the expertise to meet the textile needs of a business or home.
“We take pride in a boutique approach in our business, with a focus on treating our team members, vendor partners, and clientele like family,” said Dickson. “And as a family business, our longstanding commitment is to create beautiful, quality products that endure.”
