Vintage Fabrics at Design for Delight




While not endowed with any talent whatsoever when it comes to sewing, etc, I have done a few DIY projects with fabrics these past few months, including re-upholsturing old dining room chairs and the Marimekko panel and curtains I posted about earlier. Sadly, when I was last scouring for fabric I hadn't yet come upon Design for Delight, a Dutch store that has a beautiful collection of authentic fabrics from the 60's and 70's (all at our fingertips with International Shipping). With over 300 designs, their variety is staggering and few things have the space-energizing quality of a large-scale print from the 70's. Pricing varies wildly but, as vintage fabrics go, they are often a bargain and I think Design for Delight is a definite bookmark for other textile lovers, if only for the inpiration. You can check out the whole collection here--below are my favorites.
