Manhattan – Lower East Side
68 Orchard St at Grand St
Kick off your shopping blitz with royally luxurious fabrics for your own home castle. The artful displays make it less stuffy than your usual fabric emporium, showing off a range of styles (most starting from $25 per yard) from bold, mod patterns to what's on your grandmother's couch. Upholstery work is done in-house (estimates by request), and walls and windows get their due with wallpaper and enough tassels to make a Vegas showgirl jealous.
