Seen Around: Best Fabrics (and Best Trims)

Yesterday, I stopped by Best Fabrics on Burnet Rd. and Research, near Furniture Row. It’s not easy to spot the shop, but it’s worth discovering since Austin is short on good fabric stores. The inventory is neatly organized and includes quality fabrics for drapery or upholstery needs.

Lamar and had an over-sized club chair reupholstered in the same day. That was way beyond our expectations, but I guess Mr. Long decided to surprise us! Did I mention that his prices are very affordable too?
