FABRIC FBI

Domino Magazine Small Spaces Spring 2013

Domaine | Sara Costello

I’m hoping one of you will be able to help me out here because I’ve fallen hard for a fabric but its manufacturer is a bit of a mystery. The love affair started when I picked up a “special edition” copy of Domino Small Spaces. I knew I’d be underwhelmed (and annoyed at myself for spending over $10 on a magazine) but that chair beckoned to me.  Predictably, I finished the mag wanting more, but I especially wanted a source for that fabric!

I’d almost forgotten about it until it re-appeared–this time as a pillow–in Sara Ruffin Costello’s New Orleans home featured on Domaine. With my passion reignited, I thought I’d give it one last-ditch effort. Anyone know the manufacturer/name of that lovely fabric? I think we’re a match made in heaven and I’d love an introduction.

*UPDATE* The fabric has been identified! It’s “Althea” by Lee Jofa. Thanks to Susie for the hot tip!

  1. I’m not sure but it looks a lot like some of the florals I’ve been seeing around Lee Jofa. Maybe start there? I’ll keep my eye out at the D&D for you!

  2. Not positive, but it looks a lot like a Lee Jofa fabric called Hollyhock. It drives me crazy when a magazine doesn’t give a source for something I like! Good luck! You’ll find it!

  3. Could be Lee Jofa Hollyhock Block Multi
    It is lovely. My mother in law upholstered her living room walls and furniture with it.
    Good luck!

  4. Oh I hope you get the answer! I have been going crazy trying to find it. Saw it in the same 2 places you did!

  5. Glad you identified the mystery fabric (which is lovely, by the way)!

    I wanted to make sure you knew, as a fellow name nerd, that the SSA released the baby name data for 2012 today. Not going to lie, it’s kind of like Christmas for me… ;) (http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/#ht=1 scroll down and choose the Popular Names by Birth Year tab and pick Top 1000 for popularity. I promise you’ll become addicted…)
