Founded by David Martinez in 1998, Stitch NYC designs and creates custom home furnishings, working with prestigious architects, designers and clients throughout the US and internationally.


What began as a fashion career in couture evolved into soft furnishings for special events, then home furnishings.  Clients wanted the same attention to detail in their homes as was applied to their clothing.

Stitch is renowned, and sought after, for its detail work.  As the business has grown, design remains at the forefront for Stitch as they continue to work alongside clients and collaborate with architects and designers on luxurious pieces.

The aim is always to ensure clients derive pleasure from using the pieces created.

When I work with David and Kelly I know that I can entrust them with my most demanding clients.  They always work professionally with the highest standard for themselves.  The creative spirit and familial atmosphere always makes it fun and rewarding to work with their team.  Even though the quality of their work is exceptional, their prices are fair and in line with their competition.  I highly recommend working with Stitch.

Bespoke window treatments are a vital part of my service to clients, and Stitch executes them beautifully. Sometimes the designs can be very complex! Recently, Stitch had special iron hooks custom forged to make my client's Japanese-inspired shades come off perfectly, because there was nothing available in the marketplace. I am so grateful for their creativity, problem-solving and utter competence in the field.

It has been such a pleasure collaborating with Stitch – the workroom is expert at producing new upholstery, making new pillows, and re-inventing existing pieces with expert recovering.  The team is friendly, efficient, and professional.
