One of our customers wanted to show us what she had done with fabric she purchased from us and to tell us what she thinks of us.

Quoted from e-mail received from customer:

"Hello Laura, Of course, go ahead and add the photo to your blog! All of you are such pros and you know your every changing stock so well that it is always a joy and a pleasure to shop for fabric at Chintz and Prints. I am happy to recommend your business at any time! Thank you! Cheers, Adrienne

Thank you Adrienne for the kind words and for allowing us to share your photo. It is always fun to see what our fabrics become and how they look in your space. We just love the green peeking through the skirt. It gives your chair a custom look.

We invite all of our customers to share their "new" rooms.

Summer has offically arrived and boy is is letting us know it is here. Were you ready? I was not. I have not had a chance to make new covers for my outdoor furniture, I just barely got them out of the shed; to see if they need replacing or just washing.

They need replacing, well no time like the present. I have chosen my fabric and now need to order it. That is always a difficult decision, as we have so many to select from.

Just as we tell our customers, I decided to pick what I liked not necessarily what matched my house. There are so many colors in nature and we do not worry about them matching our house, so take some risk. If you like it, then chose it.

Below are are pictures of items we have in store and the hundreds of samples we have available to order.

Prices range from $16.00 per yard up to $200.00 per yard, so knowing what your budget is, is helpful when you come in.

Our workroom is available to make cushions in a 2-3 week time frame. So don't delay Summer will slip on by.

Hope to see your soon.

If not have a sunfilled summer and we will see you when you are ready for your next project.

Good afternoon all:

Do you have a few sentimental, favorite pieces of furniture, that you just can not part with or are they just "not made this way" any longer?

Some of us believe new is better, and that is fine, but most of us have that one piece of family heirloom that has seen better days. What to do?

We have a few ideas.

One let us help you select something fresh, different, unique, a conversation piece, or even a blended new look; a FACELIFT for that piece.

We are showing off an old but new piece, we just recently help a customer transform. Talk about looking younger.

Ray- Newtown Upholstery did the labor, his craftmenship defintely elevated the appearance of the chair, beyond the bright, cheerful, fun, fun, fun, fabric we helped select. It is one of the resons we have been recommending him for many years. We have many other craftsmen we work with through out Connecticut stop in or call for a list, we can get you to the right people for the job.

Let us know what you think. WE ADORE IT. As always feel free to send us your before and after pictures, we enjoy seeing them, and remember nothing is too old for a facelift. Send to:
