About Us

A Local Fabric and Home Design Studio

The Cotton House is a family-owned fabric and home design studio. Ruby Tannehill and her daughter-in-law Pia Hardy are proud to offer custom drapery, bedding, pillows, sumptuous fabrics, furniture, re-upholstery and unique home décor.

Ruby is the creative force behind The Cotton House, creating custom one-of-a-kind soft goods by hand. Sewing and creating custom pieces has always been a way of life for the seasoned designer, who often created pieces for family, friends and her own home. She possesses the innate ability to bring fabrics together to create the home décor of your dreams.

“She’s personable, very creative and very strict with detail. She is offering a full-service as far as being able to cover furniture, do the drapes, the bed sets, I mean full service decorating.” – R. Rodgers

After Ruby moved to Virginia from South Carolina, she worked in the design business for a large company making custom one-of-a-kind pieces, pillows, drapes, bedding, etc., and learning all aspects of the business.

Finally, the time was right, and she and Pia decided to open the business. They are also joined by Ruby’s daughter Cherie Tannehill. Together, they bring years of outstanding customer service, fabric and design experience.

Pia and Ruby believe in the importance of offering customers high-quality home design services including custom drapery, bedding, reupholstering and beautiful home goods at a fair price.
