Grand Fabric, Le Tigre from Scalamandre

As most of you know by now, iluvfabrix.com specializes in selling the “Best of the Best” fabric for upholstery, drapery, bedding, slipcovers and many other projects to beautify your home.  

Our niche is that we are able to acquire upholstery fabric which sells from $20.00 per yard to upholstery fabric that costs $2,000.00 per yard, but we are able to get everything at prices way below wholesale.  In fact our upholstery fabric is always cheaper for a decorator to buy from us than to buy from their own fabric mill representative.

We sell a lot of upholstery fabric and drapery fabric to designer/decorators as well as educated end users who know what a great, below wholesale price is when they see it.

One of the fabrics which we have sold quite a lot of over the past five years is Scalamandre Le Tigre Silk Velvet, which is one of the MOST gorgeous fabrics you have ever laid eyes on or touched, woven in a Tiger pattern and has been used in some of the most prestigious homes, High End Museums, Palaces and such around the world.  It is a VERY expensive fabric to purchase even through the best connected designer/decorator, but our price for this wonderful upholstery fabric is cheaper than the best price one can get from the above mentioned individuals no matter how good your negotiating skills.

We have sold hundreds of yards of this magnificent upholstery fabric over the past five years, as well as a few other upholstery fabrics the same category as Le Tigre.

For your reference, we have included a picture of the magnificent Le Tigre used to cover a chair in a high end home.  Enjoy the picture, below.
