Our latest additions to the site are about 25 brand new velvet fabrics in brand new modern colors, ideal for use as upholstery fabric. Upholstery fabric can be many types of fabric and is not by any means limited to velvets, but the simple fact is that really beautiful velvet can be used for upholstery fabric or drapery fabric or bedding fabric, and it really lends itself to a very modern look or a classical look depending on the type of upholstery or drapery you use this fabric on. In other words, it is very versatile.

There are a few other types of upholstery fabric and drapery fabric that can similarly be used to a very modern effect or a traditional effect depending on the style of the sofa, loveseat or drapery that you make with it, but one of the most useful is tapestry fabric.

It is always best to get the opinion of a professional before spending your hard earned money on upholstery fabric that, once it is made into the the project you purchased it for, it doesn’t have the right look.

She works for Full Time and is here five days a week.

When customers mention the term upholstery fabric to us, they more often than not use it as a catch all phrase to describe the type, weight, and style of a fabric, more so than do they mean that the particular fabric is meant to be used exclusively for upholstery.

Upholstery fabric can be used for upholstery, of course, but it can also be used for drapery of all types, bedding, slipcovers, pillows, tablecloths and so much more. Upholstery fabric is almost always heavier then fabric used for the making of clothing, and is sometimes heavier than the fabric used for the making of drapes, but more often than not upholstery fabric has uses across a wide range of applications and projects. has always been specialized in the sale of upholstery fabric and, as a result of the great length of time we have been in the business of selling upholstery fabric, we have built up a tremendous range of suppliers who sell us the best of the best fabrics in the world, at savings which we pass along to our customers at prices that are incredibly cheaper than one can purchase them from any other resource.

So please remember, when you seek upholstery fabric, which means fabric to reupholster your sofa or luvseat, drapery, bedding and many other projects requiring a top of the line fabric that is both beautiful and constructed for the purpose of being used as upholstery fabric and everything that that term implies, is your best resource for style, color, high end manufacturers and, of course, price. guarantees that our prices are lower than those of any other fabric vendor. Enjoy!





BUY FABRIC ONLINE…SAVE SO MUCH MONEY COMPARED TO BUYING FROM DECORATORS has been in business in two forms for over 35 years. For the first 22 years or so we had one of the most popular brick and mortar fabric stores. But as we all know, things change.

It became obvious to us that many businesses were including an online store presence to their brick & mortar store, thus allowing their customers to buy fabric online from the comfort of their home or office, rather than always having to drive to the brick and mortar store.

So we developed to allow people to buy fabric online and, after a modest period of time, it became obvious that we were doing a very substantial amount of business in the online store and, because there was no rent to pay, no additional staff to add and other savings, we decided to move all our operations to our online store and moved all our brick and mortar store customers to our online store to buy fabric online.

It was a bit of a risk, but it was really amazing how smoothly the transition went in moving customers to do their shopping and picking and buy fabric online.

This is just a little bit of history on the genesis of

(The three fabrics above are a small sampling of the Brand New upholstery fabrics we have listed for sale on the website).

One of the things that makes such a great source for the acquisition of upholstery fabric, drapery fabric and bedding fabric and more is that we are constantly buying fabric from the best mills from around the world.

Most other fabric stores, be they online stores or online stores, do not constantly buy fabric, and consequently every time you look at their website to see what upholstery fabric they my have thats new that you haven’t seen before, you are disappointed to find the same old upholstery fabric that has been on their site for years.

One of the hallmarks of the success of iluvfabrix in the selling of upholstery fabric is that we constantly take a portion of our monthly profits and invest it in the purchase of new upholstery fabric to exhibit and sell on our website, at

Some people think we hold a lot of sales. Its true. We do host a lot of sale of upholstery fabric and drapery fabric where we make even recent purchases available for purchase at significantly reduced prices. The reason for this is that we are constantly purchasing new upholstery fabric and want to draw our customers attention to it, and the best way of doing that is to make an upholstery fabric sale and make the brand new fabric available below our already reduced prices.

Velvet Fabric…One of the World’s Most Beautiful Types of Upholstery Fabric

Put in Blog_001

v_p185t1 has been in the business of selling upholstery fabric and drapery fabric for over 35 years, and one of the most popular types of upholstery fabric that we carry is a great inventory of velvet fabric in all colors, types and qualities (but with regards to quality, the upholstery fabric, velvet fabric, is never less than in the very best). with respect to quality.

There are a great many types of velvet fabric from which to choose. We carry cotton velvet, linen velvet, silk velvet, poly velvet, and a great many blends of either cotton, linen and silk with a small percentage of poly which gives the fabric strength and durability. Most people use velvet fabric as upholstery fabric, and as such it is absolutely necessary for the velvet fabric to be extremely durable. The small percentage of poly mixed in with the other fibers mentioned gives the fabric both a great amount of durability, and a very soft and luxurious hand. Together, any of the main fibers when mixed with a poly fabric yields an upholstery fabric that lasts virtually forever.

A great example of the previous point would be in silk velvet. One can purchase pure silk velvet made out of 100% silk, but this fabric, though beautiful in all respects does not have the durability to be used as upholstery fabric on a piece of upholstery that will get regular use. It is only to be used on an occasional piece.

However, if you mix the silk with a small percentage of poly, the resultant fabric when woven yields upholstery fabric that wears like iron, yet still retains all the elegance of silk, with the added bonus of being perfect for use as upholstery fabric.

Velvet fabric is one of my favorite types of fabric. As George Constanza used to say on Seinfeld, “if it were socially acceptable, he would drape himself in velvet”. I understand the sentiment. High end velvet, which is the only type we sell, makes a piece of furniture or drapery that is unbeatable in looks, durability and elegance, and is as soft as they come. I can’t think of anything else that would be more comfortable.

The next time you need to buy upholstery fabric to redo one of your furniture pieces or drapes, have a look at velvet fabric and Im sure you will find something you like with all the high end qualities, as long as you buy it from a reputable firm (like

Buy Fabric Online….What are the Advantages?

Beautiful Venetian Velvet....Hand Made In All Respects

Buy fabric online. Thats what most people are doing nowadays. Of course there are still a goodly number of brick and mortar stores around to buy fabric, but the problem with them as opposed to when you buy fabric online is that the overhead of a brick and mortar store doesn’t allow for the discounting of fabric as does when you buy fabric online.

We have been selling fabric for over 35 years, and for about half that time it was through a brick and mortar store. All we sold was high end fabric, mostly sourced in Europe. We realized after some time that to buy fabric online was to make our high end fabric available to our customers at a considerably enhanced discount, while at the same time allowing us to yield the same level of profit with each sale.

When you buy fabric online how does the process differ from buying your fabric from a brick and mortar store. Well, in the case of, our company, there are absolutely no disadvantages to the customer and in fact the opposite is true. There are far more advantages when you buy fabric online. We make samples available for purchase at very reasonable prices so you don’t have to buy your fabric based solely on a picture on a website, and when you buy fabric online the samples we send you are from the very same roll you get your purchased fabric from.

By storing fabric in a warehouse and displaying it online, as opposed to having to carry and display all the fabric in a retail setting, it is far less expensive to rent warehouse space than retail space. We pass these savings along to our customers. Buy fabric online and you will find that your experience is quick, painless and most important, incredibly cheap when compared to buying the same fabric from a brick and mortar fabric store. Buy fabric online, you won’t be sorry.

Home Decor Fabrics, The Great Variety of Items on That Will Bring Luxury To Your Home has been in business for over 35 years and throughout that entire time, we have never sold any other kind of fabric but upholstery and drapery fabric. In other words, Home Decor Fabric.

Home decor fabric covers a wide swath of territory in the decorating field, including upholstery fabric of a great many types, such as:

– silk fabric
– tapestry fabric
– damask & jacquard fabric
– velvet fabrics including cotton velvet, linen velvet, silk velvet, mohair velvet and others
– chenille fabric

and a great many others.

As only carries home decor fabric and given the length of time we have been selling it, one can imagine that we have developed a great many sources of fabric, being careful to select only fabric from the finest fabric mills, and being careful to purchase fabric at the best possible prices.

In addition to a wide variety of home decor fabric (there are currently almost 4,000 fabrics in stock for sale on the iluvfabrix website, which is many, many times more than most of the other companies that sell fabrics stock), we also carry a wide variety of faux fur fabric which people use to great effect in creating blankets, throws, and floor rugs which, in combination with the other more conventional kinds of home decor fabric we sell, combine to create a compelling canvas of colors and styles which will turn your home into a magnificent showplace for your family to enjoy.

So when you decide to change your home decor fabric is where one generally starts to find the ideas that lead to changes that enrich your home.


This is a question we at iluvfabrix get asked almost every day. People who have visited other upholstery fabric sites and shop and purchase their fabrics on iluvfabrix usually want to know how and where we get our upholstery fabric and drapery fabric, as we are always adding new fabrics to our site, and how are we able to charge so little. These are the things almost everyone wants to know.

Let me answer that question here for the benefit of all those who are interested.

iluvfabrix has been in business for over 35 years. During that time and especially more towards the start of our upholstery fabric sales business, we travelled all over the world, spending the predominant amount of time in Europe, visiting the fabric mills that weave the fabrics for many of the companies you are familiar with. Most people are very surprised when we tell them that companies like Colefax & Fowler, Brunschwig & Fils, Manuel Canovas, Scalamandre, Zoffany and many, many others do not design and/or weave all the fabrics they sell. In many, many cases much of the upholstery fabric, drapery fabric, silk, chenille fabric, tapestry fabric, velvet fabric etc. are in fact designed by the fabric mills themselves.

The aforementioned companies send representatives out to many of the fabric mills we visited and see what the latest designs, colors and weights are for that particular season’s upholstery fabric, and they order a quantity of that fabric. By virtue of, say, Colefax & Fowler buying any particular upholstery fabric and putting it in their sales catalog, it becomes a de facto Colefax & Fowler fabric.

That is why you can often see the same fabric appearing as a Colefax upholstery fabric, and a Brunschwig upholstery fabric. It is because the fact that they purchased a certain amount of the fabric gives them the right to call the fabric by their own company name.

We go to these same mills and buy the very same fabrics, made on the very same looms….identical in every way, and put it on our website and identify it as the fabric as it is called by the other name companies that sell it.

As we have been doing this for so long, we don’t now have to travel as much because we sell a lot of fabric, so the mills know this and they send us samples just as they would send them to Colefax, Brunschwig and other companies previously mentioned. The only difference, and its a BIG ONE, is that we are able to buy the fabric cheaper then the name brands and MOST IMPORTANTLY, we do not mark up the upholstery fabric, drapery fabric, bedding fabric or what-have-you anywhere near the markup the high end name brand companies do when they sell the fabric.

We hope this gives you all a better understanding of why our upholstery fabric prices can’t be beat. Same manufacturer, same looms, same quality control, exactly the same fabric in every way, but we buy it at great prices and we are greedy in our markups.

This is also why a great many designer/decorators buy fabric from us then mark it up and sell it to their clients. It is because they can get their upholstery fabric cheaper from us in most cases than they can get from their own representatives at the mills.

An Example of the Type of Fabric Oprah Buys


    Good day ladies and gentlemen. We have roughly ten yards left of the fabric Oprah purchased to do one of her sofas. We have enough left to do a lovely loveseat, a huge maneating sinky chair and ottoman, and a thousand other types of projects that call for very high end fabric that is both soft as silk, and very deep and cushy.

    This fabric has alternating rows of red, orange, gold and grey. This fabric is woven in one of the very top mills in Belgium for the express purposes of being used for Upholstery Fabric, drapery fabric, bedding fabric and many other projects.

    This fabric is actually a FORTUNE when purchased through a designer, but if you are Oprah Winfrey, who cares, right?

    Unfortunately, there is only one Oprah Winfrey and I would be willing to bet that that is neither you, nor I.

    This upholstery fabric is incredibly soft, luscious, and you can just tell this fabric will wear and wear and wear and it will simply not wear out. That is the hallmark of most high end upholstery fabric.

    What we have done is lowered the price of this velvet striped upholstery fabric to a number which equals our cost for this fabric. Thus you can get one of the World’s finest upholstery fabrics in a stunning colorful velvet, and we make an existing (or new) customer very happy and they come back to shop again.

    Please click the link for this fine perfect upholstery fabric and have a close up look. Make something wonderful. Enjoy watching your friends drool when they come into your home.
