Don't get me wrong: I absolutely adore Rubie Green textiles. But the label's stylish and eco-conscious fabrics are not exactly wallet-conscious. This cheerful, Chippendale-esque Tillinghast fabric goes for $90 a yard. It's true, there are fabrics much more expensive. But this price tag adds up when you're ordering drapes for every window in your living room, or covering the whole canvas of a chair, and then you pay your upholsterer. Luckily, I know one fabric with a similar sunny yellow trellis pattern to save you some dimes. Want to see it?
The white and yellow Key West fabric from Calico Corners is on sale for $12.74 a yard, reduced from a still meager $14.99. This one looks bamboo-inspired, giving it more of a Chippendale look, and the color is equally tropical.
