Welcome to “Favorite Fabric Friday,” where we introduce you to a Mood Fabrics salesperson in our NYC store and share his or her favorite fabrics of the week. Meet Danyce Bonebrake, manager of our home department. She’s a design pro who proudly admits she’s “obsessed with fabric.” Here are the home decor fabrics in our NYC store that Danyce is in love with right now:
Above: These folk art-inspired fabrics are flying off the bolts, says Danyce. She attributes their popularity to the bright colors and fresh look. In fact, she likes the fabric she’s holding so much she just made living room curtains out of them. Cotton, $30/yard, comes in four different colorways.
Above: Flamestitch designs like this Williamsburg vintage print are also hot, Danyce reports. She sees this fabric as a multipurpose fabric, perfect for light upholstery and things like headboards. Comes in blue, red, green and pebble; linen; $30/yard.
Above: Neutrals are always popular, and we just restocked these fabulous metallic linens in natural and ivory. Window treatments, bedding and accent pieces are perfect for this fabric, says Danyce. Linen, $35/yard.
