Rockville Interiors—managed by founder Tom Fulop with sons Dan and Ilan—has been the D.C. area’s premier fabric workroom since 1971. They specialize in the design, fabrication and installation of custom window treatments, re-upholstery, slipcovers, pillows, cushions, bed ensembles and more.
Rockville Interiors operates in locally owned workrooms where its team of artisan tailors, seamstresses and carpenters pair state-of-the-art technology with old world craftsmanship. Everything is made by hand, using only the world’s finest home fashion fabrics.
“Our design team travels from Milan to Mumbai, collecting gorgeous home design fabrics,” says Ilan. “The breadth of style options and richness of patterns and textures infuses our products with unsurpassed beauty.”
Customers can meet with interior designers in the showroom or at home for guidance on selecting perfect fabrics for their projects. “Our workrooms bring those designs to life,” says Ilan. Factory-trained technicians oversee delivery and installation.
Tom founded Rockville Interiors at age 22 after emigrating from Hungary. He studied architecture back home but struggled to get his career off the ground in the U.S. without speaking English. Eager to support his family, he began knocking door-to-door offering a craft his grandmother taught him—sewing plastic slipcovers.
“People were so amazed by his exquisite craftsmanship they began requesting his assistance on related home projects, including furniture upholstery, draperies and pillows,” says Ilan. He and Dan admired their father’s determination, as he worked tirelessly to keep up with demand. Soon Tom’s burgeoning business required more hands, so he began assembling his team.
“We watched our dad pour his heart and soul into his craft,” says Ilan. “He’s inspired us to lead Rockville Interiors into the future, focusing on industry-leading quality, unrivaled service and stunning results.”
