Decorating & Furniture/Matching fabric

Question
pillow fabric
pillow fabric  
Hi, we purchased these pillows from Pier1: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-thing?.out=jpg&size=l&tid=10097877

We really want to make matching drapes with this fabric (or something very similar). We tried calling Pier1, but they cannot sell us this fabric and said the manufacturer that makes it is only allowed to sell it to Pier1.

We have looked all over and cannot seem to find the fabric elsewhere.

If you know where we might be able to purchase this fabric or something close, that would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Eric

Answer
Hi Eric,

Thanks for your question.  

While I am not personally familiar with this fabric, it reminds me of West Elm's fabrics.  You might check there or with their website.  

The other suggestion I would have is to check fabric stores like JoAnn's.  They have a multitude of designer fabrics from the best suppliers and just may have something similar.  

If the above options don't work, I would suggest that you look for fabric that incorporates ALL of those colors.  It could be a stripe, a geometric or even a floral print.  As long as you include the same colors, you can successfully introduce another "pattern" in the space.  

Keep your eyes open at the discounters too:  TJMaxx, Home Goods, Marshall's.  They purchase overruns from everyone and you might get lucky.

Regards,
Jennifer
