Marketplace: Minted’s Fabric Collection

When Minted launched its fabric collection a couple of years ago, I was intrigued. I ended up ordering some sailboat fabric for my parents’ Florida condo, and I was impressed by the quality…and the print, too, of course!

When I added “recover chaise” to my 2016 to do list, I looked into Minted’s fabric collection to see what could work for my chaise and living space. Minted’s search options are great so I easily narrowed down my search (dots, white, black, grey); doing this made my online shopping experience less overwhelming.

When I narrowed things down, I let my Instagram friends weigh in on my two options.


grey or black – what’s your vote? (fabric info: organic dot by Itsy Belle Studio, $32USD/yard)

What did I end up ordering? The grey!

The fabric arrived a couple of weeks after I placed my order, and it’s beautiful. It looks even better in real life than it does in the photo above! The background is crisper white rather than a shade of grey/cream. The fabric is thick enough to use for my chaise upholstery, and the print is going to modernize my chaise. The grey is going to work well with my existing (rotating) pillow collection, and it’s going to keep my living space bright and airy. Photos will come eventually, not to worry!

Here’s a peek into Minted’s fabric collection. Just about every fabric you see here is available in a variety of colours.

I bought a chaise lounge for my living room. I’ve always wanted a chaise lounge. Now I’m looking for upholstery options. When I saw Jordan’s sofa makeover, I thought that Marimekko’s Pirput Parput fabric might be just perfect for it.


Oh Happy Day!

Like any good blogger, I love to scour the internet for inspiration. Here’s a round-up of my findings.

There’s also the option of going full out fancy with Brunschwig & Fils Les Touches fabric. Isn’t this chaise great?

I’m excited to see what I can find and what my future reupholstered chaise will look like.
