Fabric Worth Framing!

I love art,  and anybody who follows me knows I am a bit obsessed!  But what happens when one cannot afford original art, or maybe they want to change it up and hang something different that blends with other art. This is where fabric slips in! I love framed vintage Suzani's and ethnic textiles, but there are great fabrics by the yard that can be framed or stretched and look fabulous as well! Here are some of my favorites.

Etsy-I think would be gorgeous in  a gold metal frame!-Store- Jaislmerhandloom

Etsy as well-Yastik


Hello!! Love this Ralph Lauren for Kravet(DoveDale Palampur
    Just think of the possibilities with the above fabric, my thoughts below from Project Decor!

Lee  Jofa, love the colors and the scene... would be great matted with bronze frame!

Suzanne Rheinstein for Lee Jofa, the print on this is very large so would make great framed panels!

Well Kelly Wearstler's fabric is ART!! THis one is fantastic and framed would mix so well with other wall pieces!!

Again-Kelly Wearstler... awesome!

Oscar De la Renta- so wonderful comes in many colors and would be great in a tryptic! 

This speaks for itself from  Mary McDonald  for Schumacher!

I love this for a bedroom  the climbing tree is great and would be fabulous in a navy or green frame!

Schumacher -New York and Paris! I used the Paris as roman shades in my daughters room and they look great! So cool think black frames around these could be be cool anywhere!

Sharp!! Schumacher!

Great for a childs room as art! Schumacher 

LOVE-last one from the fantastic Schumacher collection!
