Duralee is Dura-Divine!

Tomorrow is an exciting day at Sally J. Designs.
Duralee, one of my favorite fabric companies, will be showcased at my studio

Duralee has been my “go-to” fabric source since going into design 12 years ago, and they never disappoint in their comprehensive collection of fabrics.
They probably have the largest print collection of any fabric house working today.  You’ve seen them all over blogland if you’ve been looking (and I have!)

I’ve used Duralee and Highland Court so many times over the years.

At HighPoint market last week, Duralee introduced two new lines that I’ve not seen in person yet.
The Mateo collection

The Walton Collection

I understand that there are new color-ways in the Wainwright Collection as well.

Can’t wait to see them in person, feel them and imagine projects with them!
Dean is brining them tomorrow!  Yippee!
This year, Duralee became the US representatives for the English fabric house,
This new line has a different vibe, and has been a great addition to the Duralee fabric family.
I’m excited to show what’s new from Clarke and Clarke.

Clarke and Clarke also has wallpaper, and that’s new for Duralee. 
Duralee isn’t just all about fabric.  They manufacturer over 1200 different pieces of upholstered furniture and case goods here in the USA.  All of the finest quality, their craftsmanship delivers heirloom quality goods that complement their outstanding array of fabrics.

Duralee has teamed up with world-famous designers to bring exclusive collections to the markeplace.
You’ve seen Thomas Paul everywhere!

His new collection is nature inspired and available in great patterns and colorways.
Duralee has hopped on the sustainable train with “Green” fabrics from Clodagh, an Irish industrial designer who is a leader in the manufacturing of sustainable products.  Her  “Global Passages” line of fabrics for Duralee are not only “green” but lovely.

Duralee is clearly a leader in the interior design industry.  Family owned and operated, Duralee is always providing something new and exciting to make our homes more beautiful.  
If you’re in the Dallas area, I hope you’ll stop by and meet Dean, have a bit of refreshment and take a look at all the new pretties that Duralee brings to us.  We’ll be here 11-6, so I hope you can come.
Just divine!!

  13. What a great post!! I too like Duralee, but I agree with what you said how we all have our "go-to" fabric house. You chose a great one!!

  14. Gorgeous fabrics!!! For some reason, I've never opened an account with Duralee. Now I see that I really should! I love all of their large prints and geometrics. The tenth pic from the bottom--the brown fabric with turquoise, tan and cream--wow!! I feel that I must have that fabric!!! :-D I have no idea where I'd use it, but I love it!
