The Design Library was founded 35 years ago by Susan Meller and her late husband Herbert. Through their love of old fabric patterns and passion for collecting, the Mellers assembled a vast record of Western textile design. Then began the daunting project – which continues today – of cleaning, mounting and classifying the hundreds of thousands of documentary fabric swatches, paintings and antique wallpapers.
