To Those of You Who Are on the iluvfabrix Site Every Day….And There Are a Lot of You!!

Hello Everybody:  I am the designer of the iluvfabrix  web site.   I have conceived all the useful features of the site.  I am writing this to let you know that the web site is being rewritten from the ground up to make it even more functional on new handheld computers such as cell phones, (like iPhones or Android phones),  tablet computers and desktop computers.

It will have all the functionality of the current site though you will find the functions a little easier to find and use.   The pictures will be bigger when you enlarge them and it will have a number of new features which will make the site a delight to use.  The pictures of the upholstery fabric or drapery fabric you choose, some of which have very subtle patterns, will be infinitely easier to see.

The one addition which I am most excited about is a feature which will let you pick a number of fabrics, meaning for example an upholstery fabric for your sofa, a complementary fabric for your chairs and drapery fabric for your windows, and actually get those fabrics to superimpose themselves on top of your actual furniture.

First you will go through the site and pick some selections of upholstery fabric, drapery fabric etc., and place them in a Favorites box.  You will then take a picture or use the process on an image you have previously shot, or use it live whereby you look at your room through the viewfinder of your phone’s camera, and see the pieces you wish to reupholster.  Then the new software will superimpose the fabrics you chose for each piece of furniture on top of the live images of your sofa, drapes, chairs etc, thereby giving you a real life viewing of how the fabric you chose will look on the actual objects.

As you might imagine, this is a very complex feature for our software engineers to write and this plus all the other parts of the rewrite will take some time to finish.  Some upholstery fabrics have very subtle patterns and they are paying particular attention to making sure the images of the upholstery fabric and the drapery fabric are 100% accurate..

They have already begun the project and we expect the new site to go live in about six months, maybe a bit sooner.

We will send a Newsletter when the new iteration of the site is about to go live with news of special discounts, sales and giveaways.

We are incredibly excited about how our rewritten site will look and function and we hope you get as much enjoyment shopping the site as we have had in conceiving its new features, AND dont worry.   About 99% of the site will function exactly the same as the site you are used to, so there will be a negligible learning curve, if even any at all.    That is in fact one of the priorities….we are writing the new site so that you can open it up and it will be so easy to use and the controls so obvious, you can start browsing and shopping right away with no delay.

We will keep you posted on the progress.    This will be a revolutionary way to choose and purchase your new upholstery fabric, drapery fabric, and fabric for any other item you have in your home.



Did You Know iluvfabrix is CONSTANTLY Adding New Fabrics To Our Site

iluvfabrix is a company which sells High End Designer Fabrics.  We have hundreds of styles, colors and patterns of upholstery fabric, drapery fabric and so much more.

Additionally, while some fabric sites look the same, showcasing the very same fabrics month after month after month, iluvfabrix is constantly changing, always adding new upholstery fabric, drapery fabric and fabric with which you can pad walls, make tablecloths, slipcovers etc to our site.  We buy fabrics directly from the fabric mills, mostly those in Europe as they are the ones who have been in business constantly for over 150 to 200 years and have the best looms and the most talented designers and weavers in the business.  That is why our upholstery fabric from companies like Colefax & Fowler, Manuel Canovas, Bennison, George Smith, Clarence House and many more are ALL woven in Europe.

Please be careful if you choose to buy from another online dealer as the greatest percentage of them get their upholstery fabric and drapery fabric from China where they copy the beautiful European designs.  Of course this means they are cheaper, but the quality is also nowhere up to the level of the real thing coming from Brussels, France, Italy, Great Britain and the many other small towns all over Europe where looming fabric is the business that essentially supports the town and its inhabitants, and is essentially a way of life.

The skills are passed down from Father to Son and Daughter and the quality stays at a superior level.

Let me also point out that every fabric we sell has been significantly reduced from the price of the very same, identical fabric sold by designers.   In most cases our upholstery fabric is one quarter to one fifth the per yard price of the very same fabric sold by professional designer/decorators.  How do we do it?    This is our niche, we are a boutique company able to buy fabric at reduced prices because of the lengthy amount of time we have been dealing with these mills, and we pass our savings along to you, our customer.   Our knowledge, our decorating skills and our prices are the reason we have been in business for well over thirty years.

Lastly let me point out that we have a full time, professional designer/decorator on staff who will help you with your fabric choices FREE of charge.  You can call her and discuss your home or specific room or specific item and she will give you decorating advice.  She is a veritable fount of information about every upholstery fabric, drapery fabric and general designer fabric we sell and is capable of answering any of your questions………and we sell thousands of fabrics.   You can also send her pictures of your room and/or the items you wish to upholster or reupholster and she will work directly from your pictures.      Certainly a lot more convenient and cheaper than paying a designer $150.00 to $200.00 per hour for advice that is probably not nearly as creative and elegant.

Hope you enjoyed this information about where iluvfabrix gets all our upholstery fabric and drapery fabric from and why you will constantly see new fabrics being listed on our site, sometimes every day, but most certainly every week…..AND ALL the fabric we sell is 100% 1st quality and Brand New right off the looms.  AND no one else can even get close to our prices.  WE GUARANTEE IT!!   Enjoy!!
