Quality is terrible. This is my third time using Calico Corners for
custom items and each project had a problem. Curtains - did not fit
rod properly even though I brought in rod to measure. Duvet cover and bedspread were to heavy to use on bed. I questioned whether or not the backing would be to heavy, the "expert" said no we do this all the time. It was to heavy. My closet now has two very heavy custom blankets keeping it warm!! Ok, I let it go and said it was my fault for not knowing enough. But last month I decided to get shutters. I looked around and Calico sold them. THey had a Sunburst Shutter rep. come to the house to measure. Several weeks later shutters installed and wow what a mess. Shutters were not built square, edges were not finished and some were just to short. I called Sunburst directly,never received call back, I called again. Once I received confirm of them coming back to look at mess I called Calico to keep them in the loop. I had to leave message for my sales lady. I did not receive call back from her. I think they should have called me right after install to make sure all went well. Sunburst came and did minor repairs; would not change out short shutter, just added piece of wood to window trim to block light, they had to take one shutter and recut it to make it square and in doing so, put a large gash in my window trim. So I am left with a trim repair and it cost me close to $4000 to do six windows. I did receive a call from the Calico service manager the a week after I left message at store. Then she called me after Sunburst Shutter came to house for adjustments. Not much they can do, just another unhappy homeowner!!

I went into Calico Corners to find fabric to reupholster an ottoman and received very poor customer service. They have an appointment sign up sheet and the sales associate taking names was extremely rude and condescending. When I explained that I was there to purchase fabric that I had already picked out a few days beforehand but wanted assistance determining how much yardage I would need, she curtly responded that they couldn't do that and that I had to take full responsibility for figuring it out (even though I just wanted a rough estimate). She also made several other rude comments - basically telling me to move out of the way of the counter (despite the fact that no one was around and I was just waiting for someone to assist me). She obviously wasn't knowledgeable because another sales person who eventually helped me was able to tell me quickly and easily how much fabric to buy without any hesitation. I will not be returning to this store and would not recommend it to anyone else.

I chose calico corners to reupholster my couch and was terribly disappointed with the finished result. It was very expensive to do and when it came back with wavy welting along the top of the cushions, they did not want to address the issue. All they could say was i should keep playing with the cushions and they were sure it would work itself out. I consulted with another upholsterer and found the problem to be too much welting, therefore it would not lay straight across the top of the cushion, but rather lay in a wavy pattern across the top of the cushion. I would never recommend this place to anyone and I would caution you to look around before using them. They were the most expensive of all the estimates I received, but I really thought they would provide the highest quality of workmanship and certainly better customer service than that which was provided.

The name does not do it justice... they sell high-end as well as fashionable (gasp) fabrics and furniture. Who knew?! It's busy every time I go there (remarkable) but I always get friendly help if I ask. Sometimes I just like to look around and get inspired. (Apparently, they take appointments now, which is a huge help.) They don't offer full service "design" (paint, wallpaper or lighting, etc) but they specialize in custom window treatments and they don't charge an hourly design fee. They know their stuff. Phenomenal quality of finished products. Great website, too... www.calicocorners.com

I have visited this store twice and each time found their service was poor. One designer I spoke with, clearly was not that knowledgable in design.On the other occasion I was virtually ignored.

You will find a wonderful selection of fabrics and more to adorn your windows. They have so many great choices that it will be hard to choose between them. That's where their very knowledgeable staff comes in. They'll help you with your decisions - telling you what you need to know about a certain fabric type or window covering that will help you with your choices. Their prices are great and they also offer discounts so this is definitely the place to shop if you're planning on sprucing things up around the house.

Being in the Ramsey area I've stopped in Calico Corners for decorating ideas, fabric and direction many many times. Their staff is knowledgable and will help you with any project. If you have something really large in mind they will do in home consultations.

They regularly offer discount coupons i.e. $50 off $250 in sales.

They do custom window treatments. They have a lovely selection of upholstery fabrics and they usually have a bin of discounted items if you want to save some money.

Their motto is "The more you decorate the more you save!". This eally applies to this store.

PROS: Great merchandise helpful staff
CONS: none
