About Lee Jofa Fabric
Known for its vibrancy of color, innovation in design, and an artisanal quality that reflects its long-standing tradition in fabric design and production, Lee Jofa has progressed immensely through the centuries. The small rope making business first established in New York during the 19th century is now one of the most respected names in fabric and wallpaper production and distribution. Today Lee Jofa Fabrics are considered to be among the finest all over the world, created for interior spaces that demand beauty, balance, and style.
A Tradition of Excellence: The tradition of Lee Jofa Fabrics dates to as far back as 1823, when George Johnson, coming from England, decided to put up a rope and rigging and upholstery stuffing business in New York City. The fabric business started when Johnson eventually teamed up with Faulkner, and both names were shortened to the more memorable: JOFA. In 1965 JOFA was purchased by Arthur H. Lee & Sons, a fabric company popular for their innovative weaves. To merge the two companies together, the new company was named Lee Jofa. Twenty years later, Lee Jofa Fabric acquires Groundworks, a textile company known for their innovative, modern-styled fabrics. Another nine years later, Kravet Fabrics, one of the oldest and most respected names in the decorative textile industry, purchases Lee Jofa Fabrics. After six years, Kravet Fabrics acquires GP&J Baker, a textile production business established in 1884. GP&J Baker collections are distributed through the showrooms of Lee Jofa after the acquisition. The Lee Jofa licensing division was launched in 2001, as well as the David Easton, David Hicks, Diamond and Baratta, Allegra Hicks, Suzanne Rheinstein, and Eric Cohler. In 2002 the company put up Cole & Son wallpaper, and in 2004 an upholstered furniture collection was launched. Between 2005 and 2006 four new brands joined the company – Andrew Martin, McRae, Holland and Company, and Bella Figura - making Lee Jofa Fabric one of the most formidable names in the fine furniture, lighting, wallpaper, and decorative textile markets.
