I Felt Like Dropping Some Pics Of My (Collection Of?) Extra Mod Upholstery Fabric. Status: Laying In Wait.
I started buying this stuff a while back when I was going to recover a bunch of Tulip chair seats pads. Then I just started buying it any time I found some that caught my eye.
You just never know when you'll need some cool fabric to recover a danish chair
cushion set, so I think it's just good planning to have this all on hand. Having the
Cocoa colored fabric on hand when I finally decided to recover the Brasilia chairs
definitely got the ball rolling on that project.
The rest of these patterns and colors are waiting for their projects to show up. All
of it is heavy upholstery fabric. Nothing flimsy about this stuff. I even spotted some
"Chrome" vinyl but passed on it. I just couldn't imagine what I might EVER do with
I have a TON of this Purple and Green stuff. I have maybe five or six pieces, each
about two to three yards. It's maybe a bit obvious (Contemporary Atomic?) but I'm
sure I'll have a use for it all sooner or later. If I didn't buy it all up I'm sure I'd be
sorry later on.
These pale green pieces are much more subtle. These will make something
beautiful some day. It's nice to know I don't have to buy something with great or
even good upholstery since I can take some time and redo it myself. Mr. Modtomic
DOES indeed have a (Cool Retro) sewing machine and knows how to use it (ish).
This piece reminds me of Eames designs, though it's probably not like anything
they ever designed. I really wish that the store would have had more of it. They
might have more the next time I check back. That seems to happen sometimes.
These accent pillows were found at Old Time Pottery. They also have a table or
two full of "remnants" like those above. I've got some stuff from them too but it's
kinda Tiki or Hawaiian looking stuff and is destined to be used on the cushions of
my Paul Frankl rattan sofa and chair.
