Over the weekend, I stumbled onto Spoonflower, a textile company that (in their words) "makes it possible for individuals to design, print and sell their own fabric designs". The result, as you might imagine is a wiiiiide variety of patterns and styles all at extremely reasonable prices. I want swatches of EVERYTHING!
I spent hours this weekend looking at page after page and I feel like I've only scratched the surface.
I was especially drawn to this watercolor style collection called "Garden Lark".
I really want to use this one below on a pair of Bergere chairs:
I love the watery, dreamy quality of these fabrics! The designer of this collection, Vivian Ducas also has a beautiful blog that shows even more of her work. I'll be spending some time perusing all the products I can buy with her designs on them. There's nothing that makes me happier than accidentally stumbling upon some truly amazing textile goodness!
Some of my other Spoonflower favorites:
This malachite fabric is most certainly on order! The only question is do I get it on silk, cotton or upholstery weight twill? That's right - you can pick the type of fabric to have it printed on. Pretty fantastic!!
If it's hard for you to visualize how a particular fabric would look on say, a chair don't sweat it. Spoonflower often displays project photos shared by customers.
As with any newly discovered infatuation, I'm kind of obsessed with all things Spoonflower.
