As a decorator, I admit to being a major fabric snob, and when I say snob, I mean addict. For years, I’ve enabled my high-end fabric addiction by shopping solely at to-the-trade-only showrooms which non-professional decorators or designers can’t get into. Since this is all part of how I make my living, there’s no need for a 12 Step Program even though my reasoning is somewhat out of whack. I’d rather spend $12 on a chair, then use a $50 per yard fabric to recover its seat cushion than the other way around.

My to-the-trade-only situation recently changed—thanks to my amazing project manager, Dayka. She brought me to a magical place where everyone is welcome to purchase designer fabrics without enormous designer price tags, Calico Corners. Of all their offerings, I fell in love mostly with those from Thom Filicia and Iman. While I go pick up custom pillows and tableskirts made from them, you go scroll down and take a look-sie.

    I think for most of us in the real world, $40 a yard is still too expensive. Where are the real bargains? And I don't want to hear down town LA ….. dated , boring and neon. Please help! Anyone?

      I buy a lot of fabric shower curtains on close out at target or overstock.com, basically 3 yards and then some for 5 to 25 $… not a bad deal when using it to recover small chairs or make window treatments.
