Lifestyles & Interiors: Wild for Animal Prints

SPACESLauren Caron2 Comments

Last week I scored this gorgeous Scalamandre silk velvet for less than $150/yard. I was thrilled to find such a beautiful textile at such a great price. If you're ever looking for great fabrics by such companies as Brunshwig & Fils, Scalamandre, Beragamo and Kravet Couture you must keep Design Diva Fabrics on your radar. They typically have these labels on their site at good prices, but every so often they have these spot 24 hour sales where they mark the prices down to deep discount from 75 - 85% off! That's how I was able to purchase this lovely fabric. After the sale it goes back up to their regular prices of 50% off retail. The fabric originally cost at retail $1,448.80/yard. It's only appropriate to quote Rachel Zoe here, "That is B-A-N-A-N-A-S!" Scalamandre "Leopardo Delle Nevi " Exclusive Infused Silk Leopard Velvet | Wild Kingdom Collection

If you follow my Pinterest feed, you might have notice that I've been inspired by animal prints lately and even created a board dedicated to them. I've been coveting some great leopard for a while and finally found the right fabric at the right price. I can not wait to make some super chic pillows out of it. Of course I will probably wait forever because I will be so concerned about making the right decision about how to use it - square, rectangular, trim, no trim, backed in leopard, not backed in leopard, turkish corners, etc, etc. The indecisions go on and on.
