hable must-have


im totally nutty about this hable construction fabric- 'bead' in the lemon colorway. it's totally the look i'm going for in my dining room, but it's trade-only. boo! i'm going to email hable and see if i can plead with them to let me buy some even though i'm not a trade member. i'm going for a warm gray/yellow dining room with mid-cent accents and possibly some magenta or warm teal accents. we'll see...what are YOUR favorite fabric resources? i seem to only find the trade-only kind these days and would love to know where you guys go for great, modern fabrics.

[update: thanks for all your help guys- ms. hable herself- lucy- was kind enough to let me order through her ny store. yay!]

That really is pretty fabric. What would you like to use it for - curtains? I'll keep my eyes peeled for similar fabrics.

You maybe already know about Repro Depot (www. reprodepot.com), but they are my favorite.

Hey Grace,
You should have a look at Twenty2 (www.twenty2.net) -- really cool, organic and modern fabrics and wallpapers. Their Casa Mila wallpaper has my name on it when I open a proper shop.

although i've never purchased from Contemporary Cloth, they seem to have a good selection of cool patterns.


too bad angela adams' site no longer sells her fabric directly to the public...

I'm an ASID member and Interior Designer, perhaps I could order for you? Let me know how many yards you will need and I would be happy to contact them. Never ordered from Hable before, they may have a min. yard requirement...

the marimekko site has some nice fabrics that you can order. beware, the patterns appear differently on the site than the actual fabric.

Hancock Fabric has fabrics by Laurie Smith (of Trading Spaces fame, but don't hold that against the fabrics...) that are somewhat Hable-ish, and certainly more affordable.

Grace, this is unrelated, but why are so many places trade-only? I've often wondered what the rationale could be. Is it just that supply is limited?

Dear, it sounds like it's time for you to befriend an interior designer or architect! In fact, I would bet that there are quite a few browsing your lovely page who might be willing to use their "trade" muscle as a pay back for all of your fabulous advice!

Any takers?

I, too, have fallen in love with the same fabric (although in blue, to upholster a chair) and I am also desperate to get my hands on some. Couldn't figure out how much it may cost, although I suspect it is pricey.

Is there a way to hire a designer for a few minutes, just long enough for them to make the order? Because if there is, I am IN!

thanks guys!

ms. hable herself (lucy, that is) was kind enough to email me and offer to let me order through their ny store. woohoo!

i'll be posting pictures of my selections and the final hable-d out product!

Lindsey, I am a decorator who often places fabric orders for others and I don't charge for my time. I have ordered from Hable and they are great to work with. I would love to help you!

also, www.amybutlerdesigns.com has some cool and cheap fabrics open to anyone.

Hi! Omg, I love that fabric as well! I especially love the "sweet pea" bead color as well as the lemon. Would sponge or anyone let me know if there is a yard min. and how much per yard? Also, would anyone (designer) be willing to help if they won't sell to little non-designer me? Thanks!

there is a 3-yard minimum. i had roman shades made from this fabric for my daughter two years ago in sweet pea. they turned out great. I also just ordered the storage boxes in lagoon from this fabric. i love it too.

would you mind sharing how much per yard? Anyone?

can anyone offer a ballpark price per yard for this fabric, or Hable fabrics in general? is this the printed cotton/linen or the jacquard?
another great- but also to the trade- company is Galbraith and Paul but VERY pricey, about $100/yard
