I couldn't resist reupholstering two of my own chairs in this rare Brunschwig and Fils piece!

Sourcing this gem, and in such quantity, was among my fabric dreams come true! This late 1950s era Brunschwig & Fils canvas upholstery fabric titled "French Gladiola" has such vivid color, such perfect period illustrative expression, and there's so much of it — easily enough fabric for a couch, matching chairs, large scale curtains, even to use as a fabric-based wallpaper application.

The operative word here is scale as each run of the French Gladiola arrangement is 33" wide x 35" high. Imagine the maximalist or grandmillennial statement that will be made when this fabric acts a grand central design feature to a room. Even a yard of it stretched over a frame to act as a canvas would itself be a showstopper of a still life art.

Among its other amazing features, this piece was entirely hand printed. Swoon!

Heavy weight, firm hand, low drape (but would have some flow in very long curtains).

COLORS: On an off-white background are illuminating yellow, burnt orange, black, russet, deep emerald green, vintage Girl Scout uniform green, hint of mint.

Size: 37" inches wide w/ generous 3" selvage each side x 1 yard increments. French Gladiola arrangement is 33" wide x 35" high. We have an 11 yard piece and a 16 yard piece. By the yard is $249. If you want to buy all 11 yards or all 16 yards or both pieces together, message me and I'll set up a special order:
11 yards for $2,525 (a savings of $214)
16 yards for $3,500 (a savings of $484).
Both pieces for $5,999 (a savings of $724)

CONDITION: Excellent overall — fibers and color are superb. Some discoloration at the selvage edge which might come out with further treatment but otherwise would not likely affect projects as it would be used up in the seam allowance.

SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources (or in this case, discontinued stock that's 8 years old) either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, which is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.

Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.

I have given this seller a 5-star rating for her outstanding customer service. The colours in the fabric were not what I had hoped for, although the photos in the listing were accurate but appeared to me, somewhat brighter. Because this fabric was the last piece, seller made an exception, and accepted the return for a refund and did so promptly. Sometimes things don't work out but can still be a positive experience when a mutual resolution can be pleasantly met. A class act, I highly recommend this seller.

Such exquisite fabric. Stunningly vibrant with a soft but substantial hand. Just lovely! It was obvious that Lindsay knows a great deal about fabric. Beautiful experience!

Lady Virginia Vintage is such an amazing shop. But it all starts with Lady Virginia's persnickety artist's eye. She has to first see it before we can see it. She's been selling beautiful things for a long while. I just found her this week! So fortunate am I. You would not believe the vibrant yellows in this fabric. Lemon perfect.
