I am long overdue to share one of my favorite fabrics… but I promise that this collection from Susan Sargent is worth the wait. Her gorgeous floral prints are modern with a hint of big botanical retro. I love them all! Check out her site to view the entire collection.
I’m ready to reupholster a fun sitting chair in this great patterned print! Or how about curtains for an office or a little girl’s room? This print would also make a great tablecloth or runner.
