I have loved Pierre Frey Kubus ever since I first laid my eyes upon it. In fact I immediately sent out for a sample. I thought that with my budget I could stretch and someday make a small pillow..but probably not until Christmas 2016:-) Unlike my budget Lauren Santo Domingo was able to make a whole lot of Kubus yardage happen when there were multi panels that were necessary to drape her home..(necessary is the key word..and I don't disagree..except for if it were in my home...because I am sure Pierre Frey found all of my extra coins needed to buy the before said fabric and had them melted down to use in his dear Kubus fabric...there is some metallic action going on in the fabric..
Once I got over not having any metallic action in my fabric then I found out that it made much more sense to use Annex by Robert Allen for Dwell Studio. Besides I had in my mind that it would work best for my little boys room and the least expensive the better for a space like that (as a side note I'm still trying to get smashed cereal bar out of their fairly new rug). After seeing the fabric in person I made a deal and placed an order but then cancelled because at my local fabric retailer they still wanted a pretty penny plus $25 for shipping and in the interim figured out that I could go here and get it for $18.95 plus $4.99 shipping. It still is not quite the fabic of the Kubus but thought that it gave me a similar look, BARGAIN!!
Have you found any bargains you feel the need to share? If so I would love to hear.
