25% off Retail - Upholstery and Cut Yardage - First Cut Fabric for Less
Narrowing down to the right fabric can seem daunting. We've found a convenient way to make it easier.
By phone or email give us some basic ideas about your project
For example: the colors you have in mind, the colors already in the room, the type of pattern. Maybe you've bookmarked some examples on the web - send them to us. Perhaps you are working from paint and carpet samples - snap a photo of it and send it.
We Gather a Variety of Fabric Options For You
If your fabric ideas are rather specific - like "dark blue velvet" - we'll start mailing you some samples right away. And wait for your feedback to get more exact if needed.
If your fabric ideas are more exploratory - like "neutrals, but no large patterns" - we will email you pictures or links to suitable fabrics. You give us feedback and we modify our research. When you see fabrics that interest you, we send physical samples to your door.
Browse Our Fabric Sources Yourself
We've listed the typical retail price range for each house. Browsing by sample books is an easy way to explore options. The detailed search button lets you find fabric by type, color, pattern.

Can I Get My Own Fabric?
Yes - be it from an online fabric seller, the fabric district, or from everyone's favorite fabric outlet.
May we make a few suggestions?
- Verify that the fabric is suitable for upholstery and suitable for the upholstery use you intend. A low durability rating multi-purpose fabric will not last very long on heavily used chairs - for example.
- Ask if you can return the fabric if it contains flaws. Skewed patterns, broken threads, permanent creases, and water marks are the most common. If possible, inspect the yardage before committing the purchase.
- Ask if the yardage is coming from the same roll. Multiple pieces may come from different dye lots and may have color differences.
- If you are buying custom fabric from the design center of a furniture retailer, check with us about the price and the delivery time. We represent many of the same resources. And have a more nimble ordering process. And far lower overhead costs.
- If you want us to help you with the yardage required, let us know the repeat dimensions of the fabric you want to buy. Check out the lower section of the upholstery price and yardage guide for the repeat factors the pattern has on yardage.
And apply some degree of skepticism.
Discounted designer fabrics WITHOUT any distributor reference may not be designer level fabrics at all. So you end up paying 100% for a down market fabric that is advertised as 40% off designer stock, but is not designer stock. And you have no way to check.
Cheap ... errrrr ... affordable ... (right?) ... upholstery fabric is usually cheap for a few reasons.
- It is open stock: produced in large quantities and widely available
- It is discontinued and being sold on clearance: the distributor wants it off the shelf at cost and the gurus of discount fabric gobble up the fire sale and mark it up.
- Mill ends: distributors are flushing out the odd bits of the same pattern from different mill runs to consolidate their stock.
- Cheap is sometimes just cheap: what can I say?
Do NJ Upholstery Shops Offer Affordable Upholstery Fabrics?
Yes, many do. In at least four possible ways.
- Many upholsterers carry fabric lines that are more open stock fabrics with lower prices.
- They access discontinued and clearance fabrics from distributors they represent and pass the savings to you.
- Upholsterers buy their own stock of the clearance fabric and sell it to you at a low price.
- They share their dealer discount with you on premium designer fabric, lowering your retail price.
So, hang in there with your upholsterer for a while.
The assumption that they are gouging you on fabric can get you into some effort and expense you hadn't planned. Discuss fabric prices. Ask about options when the fabric price seems high - such as similar enough patterns from alternative sources. Or a similar color on clearance.
Most upholsterers understand the budget squeeze and will work with you.
