Most fabrics in-store and online are 20 percent off already low prices…and 300 patterns are deeply discounted between 50 and 75 percent. Wow. I’m feeling a little weak in the knees.
Whether you’re looking for solids, geometrics, stripes, Ikat or other classic patterns, you’ll find them all at Calico at inviting price points. My hubby and I just bought an antique farmhouse and I’m up to my eyeballs in fabric swatches from favorite designers like Robert Allen and Charlotte Moss.
I’m especially excited to reupholster our vintage furniture finds with fresh fabrics in my favorite color combos. We’ve decided on blue/violet/grey/cream for our living room sofa and chairs, with lucite and glass accents. And our funky family room will come to life with camel, chocolate, orange, eggplant and cream with chrome and glass accessories. Both rooms sport a mid-century modern vibe with a healthy dose of Chinoiserie furniture, lamps and pottery.
Now I’m counting the moments before I run into my go-to Morris County Calico store in East Hanover. The best part is getting complimentary design consultation from experienced decorators like Karin Hoffsten, who I work with frequently. This week I need her advice about ordering a sleep sofa for our new pad. With six kids and two dogs in our family, we need lots of comfy, durable furniture.
Other Calico stores are in Cherry Hill, Ramsey, Short Hills, Matawan and Princeton.
