At this public fabric and wallpaper showroom, owner and former interior decorator Barbara Karpf offers designer-label home textiles from brands such as Thomas Paul and Dwell Studio at discounted prices. If you’re looking to reupholster an old chair or spice up your bedroom walls on a budget, head to the sample-filled space with your vision in mind, and the staff will help you sort through the massive library of more than 200,000 textiles to find a match. Should Greenhouse muted paisley upholstery fabric ($30 per yard), Scalamandré raffia wallpaper ($150–$200 per roll) or Duralee classic toile drapery fabric ($30–$40 per yard) strike your fancy, Karpf will dispatch a staffer to measure your apartment at no extra cost and work with the manufacturer to produce your new drapes or pillows.
