Chairs and sofas - the centerpieces of our living room. Weather you live in a house, apartment, condo, or loft, every living space needs furniture. You can go shopping for a new couch or chair and search endlessly for the perfect fit for you. Only problem is you can't seem to find what you are looking for. That is where upholstery fabric shops come in.

You can find the perfect piece of furniture, but you may not like the color options the furniture store or upholsterer has available. You search across town looking for fabrics that will work, but aren't in love with any of the same old fabrics you see everywhere else. Now its time to look online for some inspiration. You find something you like, but its impossible to find the same exact fabric. STOP. Instead of looking to match someone else's creation, try to create something on your own. Go online and find a fabric store with some bold patterns - something that makes a statement. Order some samples of your favorite patterns and solids and match the colors. After you pick the perfect combination, send the fabric directly to your upholsterer. Be your own interior designer. You will be surprise at how easy it is to order fabric online. Not only will you save yourself some money, but you will be so pleased with the results.

You can order fabric to upholster a new piece or you can save even more money but just reupholstering your old furniture. Sometimes, all your furniture needs is a little love. 

We have a client here named Donna who wanted to give her living room a makeover. She loved her color theme, just wanted a fresh look to make her home more lively. She looked online for fabric shops until she found Top Fabric. Donna ordered some samples of her favorite patterns in her old color scheme. She also asked for some corresponding solids to match the color. Donna loved the fabric design, color, and quality so she placed the order. She had an idea and went with it. Here are some before and after pictures of Donna's project:
