There are times when you find a fabric that is so special. When the manufacturer doesn't have enough in stock, you end up having to look for other options. Sometimes you just can't find a suitable replacement. You either have to move on – or, if you are lucky enough, it will come back. For this amazing lavender linen with its silk-like texture- not to mention visual texture - it really was worth the wait. (Actually, a three month wait.) I can't wait to see this applied to the modern sofa it will end up on for one of our clients.
