In June 1988, founders Mark Pollack, Rick Sullivan and Susan Sullivan, all alumni of Jack Lenor Larsen, launched their new venture - POLLACK - with a memorable collection of 22 textile designs targeted to the high end commercial interiors market. Under Mark Pollack's design direction, the company established a reputation for signature woven fabrics with sophisticated aesthetics, intricate constructions, nuanced color palettes and timeless elegance.
Over the years the company broadened its offerings to include textiles specifically for the hospitality and residential markets. The collection today includes luxurious velvets and embroidered silks, side by side with inventive non-wovens and performance oriented designs.
In 2011 the company merged operations with Weitzner Limited, a highly regarded, innovative wallcovering company.
Now in its twenty-seventh year, POLLACK is thriving under the creative leadership of Rachel Doriss, VP and Design Director. Rachel manages a design studio that produces energetic, timeless and beautifully constructed textiles to meet the ever evolving needs of the interior design community. The collection boasts over 500 designs; classics mingle with new designs that are brought to market with enviable consistency.
Early 2015 brought to a close a year-long renovation of POLLACK’s headquarters in New York City’s Soho district. Warehouse and sampling departments have been consolidated and moved to greatly expanded facilities in New Jersey, while Operations, Customer Service, the Design Studio and Marketing Department remain in NY. POLLACK, with a worldwide following, continues as a privately held boutique company and currently employs 66 people.
