The Best Patterned Silks

Today I am excited to feature my favourite selections for one of the most luxurious textiles known to mankind - silk. One of my personal mantras is that natural materials will never go out of style and will always look elegant and lavish. Silk is no exception. God bless the little worms that work their little non-existent bums off to give us this beautiful, natural fabric!

All fabrics are available through Meade Design Group - Purchase during the month of March, 2009 and save 20% on your order.

Loving Lemon Drop and Old World Scarlet. You are making me want to reupholster something.

Echito said...

Eeeee they are all so beautiful it makes it so hard to choose! I have to say that I think Lemon Drop is beautiful and happy, but for a traditional fabric I do love Silk Forest and of course you can't fo wrong with Allegra Hicks or Barbara Barry, it totally depends on the application... tough call!

Brillante Home Decor said...

I agree with Brilliant (we almost have the same name...same taste)Lemon Drop will be my first choice, so fresh and inviting, I can see a screen or a panel;
Old World is also interesting and vibrant,for a chair in a corner or accent pillows

Another vote for Lemon Drop and Old World - Scarlet :-) Cracked Ice looks cool. And I love purple, so Waves in Deep Purple too :-)
