fabric fun *


i've been looking for fun vintage fabric for our apt for ages now and i thought this site, reprodepot had some fun patterns. divided by era and style, reprodepot has some fun (and kitschy) fabrics that won't break the bank. i know horses and cowgirls seem nutty, but i was immediately drawn to that colors and kitschy-ness of it. i'm sure some of you will want to puke when you see them, but i think- done well- they could be super cute in a mid-cent room or something with a bit of quirk. i can hear ac moaning now, "oh god don't bring those fabrics home..".


if cowgirls and horses aren't for you, check out their great collection of fabrics from the 20's, 30's and 40's-70's- they're full of affordable designs with bright colors and bold patterns. perfect for small scale use (i'd think some of them would knock you out if used in a large scale way). click here for the full selection. enjoy!

oh, wow. i love the horse fabric so much, it's making comment for the first time in the 6 months i've been reading d*s.

i moved to chelsea in august, but the rest of my life has been spent in oklahoma (where my parents have a horse ranch)...and my apartment has this sort of weird mid century/western/scandinavian/insane vibe going on...which would totally be amped up with a few horse pillows...i almost can't handle how great the colors are.

thanks, grace!

thanks for commenting, bri!

i'm so glad you love these- i was hoping someone else would see their total cuteness potential.

d*s :)

I also love retro kitschy fabrics (esp. with cute little animals!) so I thought I'd share a site that also has a good selection.

But Reprodepot is still the best I've seen so far. And I love Amy Butler's fabrics...they're so beautiful. She's supposed to come out with new designs soon. Here's her website for more info: http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/mainmenu.php

Also, I just wanted to let you know that I've checked out (in person) the fabric in the bottom of your picture (the brown/pink, ylw geometric patterns) and it's very stiff. I was thinking of using it as curtain material, but I'm not sure it would bend and pleat nicely. It's more of a pillow/upholstery type of fabric.
