What is that beautiful Roman Shade fabric in the gray dining room?
Delighted to share. It’s Thomas Paul for Duralee, pattern number 20877.
We’ve developed a slight crush on Thomas Paul fabric, we must say. The designs are so fresh! [More...]
Surely you’ve seen THIS one. Number 20874…it’s been featured in every design magazine on earth.
Are there truly no names for these patterns? What a wasted opportunity! This could be “Love. Birds.”
And 20871 could be “Nuu Bamboo.”
(Hmm..perhaps bossy color should stick to her day job…)
As a bonus, Thomas Paul fabrics can be significantly less expensive than the usual suspects when it comes to fashion-forward prints on cotton or linen (such as 20965, below).
How much less? Well, Schumacher and Scalamandre cottons can list for well over $100/yard. The Thomas Paul fabrics we’ve been flirting with are in the $45-80/yard range. Of course, if you’re working with a designer, you may be getting a discount on that list price…bossy color clients certainly do.
So please be in touch if you’re interested in “Cotton Unawares:”
Excuse us. We meant to say, the aptly named, “20966.”
