Little Luxuries - Brick House Fabrics

Gorgeous designer fabric can be so costly. There are some Clarence House fabrics that I love that cost over $1000. a yard. Unless you are part of the one percent, or have clients that are the one percent, most of us will never get to use these beautiful fabrics.

A little bit of luxury fabric on a stool is something everyone can do when you get it discounted from Brick House Fabrics

Gorgeous Clarence House Velvet in a tiger print is over $1000. a yard

That is why I am so excited to share a source with you. It's a small company in Maine called Brick House Fabrics that sells small yardages of all kinds of luxury and designer fabrics. While we may not be able to afford to make drapes, or upholster a piece of furniture, we can afford to get just enough fabric to make a toss pillow or two, or maybe cover a chair seat, or do some other crafty project.

A small touch of a designer fabric you might find at Brick House Fabrics could cover a little chair seat

I'm showing you just a few things they have. I bought a large piece of vintage Clarence House fabric that Billy Baldwin designed. I'm going to have a couple of toss pillows made from it.

A piece of this fabric would make a wonderful toss pillow

This Clarence House fabric is dynamic and you can buy a small amount of it at a great price at Brick House Fabrics

From the Brick House web site:

"Most of our fabrics are first quality, new on the bolt, from the manufacturer. But, we also go on buying trips several times a year where we are able to pick up some unique out of print fabrics as well as some vintage fabrics.
We carry Braemore Fabric, Covington Fabric, Duralee Fabric, P.Kaufmann Fabric, Ralph Lauren Fabric, Robert Allen Fabric, and others. We look for Kravet Fabrics, Laura Ashley Fabrics, Greeff Fabrics, Schumacher Fabrics and others.
Our specialty is novelty home decorating fabrics. We are constantly expanding our lines, and adding new items. We import many fabrics directly from the mills in Europe. While our main emphasis is printed fabrics, we also have an interest in lace curtain fabric yardage, both full width and cafe lace, which we also import directly
We appreciate how difficult it is to buy fabric on the net. While we make every effort to make descriptions as accurate as possible, and pictures as true to life as we can, colors differ on monitors. Please buy samples if you need to co-ordinate a fabric to an existing one.
And, send us pictures of final projects! We love to see how the fabric is used! See the Postcard section to see some of the things people have done with our fabric!"

So put Brick House Fabrics on your radar and data base. I am sure that one day you will find just that perfect piece that will add the perfect little grace note or finishing touch, a little touch of luxury that we can all afford.

And when I get my Billy Baldwin fabric, I will show you what I do with it.
