An understated floral chintz with lilacs, chrysanthemums, roses, lilies, and morning glories set against knotty twisting trees and graceful foliage. 100% cotton chintz screenprint in a design that was a Lee Jofa exclusive. Perfect for cottage chic and shabby chic decor.
COLOR: On a light cornsilk background are millennial pink, mustard, dusty rose, dark ivy green, lavender, white, peach, khaki, mauve, teal, ultimate gray, army green, and black. (The picture showing the lilies with the darker background (pic #9) is an incorrect background — the background is the lighter color shown in the other pics.)
Sample Size: 26″ wide + 1″ right hand selvedge x 44″ long. Flowers range from the smallest at 1″ x 1″ to 2″ x 2″, 3″ x 3″ and the lilacs at 6″ long by 3″ wide and the lilies at 4″ long by 5.5″ wide.
What Can You Make? A pillow, Roman shade for a small/med window, piecing for quilts, piecing for fashion accessories, more. Large enough to cover a small-med dining room chair seat and/or back. Or use like this designer is doing, by piecing it to one part of a piece of furniture while using other fabrics to finish it out: https://w9yards.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Birds-of-a-Feather-pg-1.png
Maker: Begun by Arthur H. Lee in the late 19th century, A. H. Lee & Sons of Birkenhead, England was a family firm well into the 20th century, merging with Johnson and Faulkner (Jofa) which formed in 1823, to form Lee Jofa. One of the leading to-the-trade interior fabric houses, Lee Jofa is now held by Kravet.
Why High-End Vintage Fabric Samples? Because the large over size sample and superior manufacturing quality make it possible to access a very high-end fabric for a smaller scale project without the high cost of these classic vintage fabrics, which often begin at over $150 a yard, if they can still be found at all. Other reasons are to access a small amount of discontinued fabric to match or to repair an existing piece in your home.
