Share Article

Townsend Leather Company will be unveiling its first product line designed by Roger Thomas, recognized leader in interior design for the hospitality industry, at this year’s HD Expo in Las Vegas in May. "Mr. Thomas came to Townsend with the vision of updating the classic beauty of genuine parchment made popular by Jean-Michel Frank in the 1930’s". The Faux Parchment leather created for this collection invokes the look of genuine parchment, but with a soft supple feel, suitable for wall covering or upholstery use.
