Hot air balloons have nearly been hunted to extinction due to people wanting to use their pelts as colorful, flame-retardant upholstery material. Examine their magnificent hides with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of home décor fabrics at Distinctive Fabrics & Furniture in Cornelius.
Distinctive Fabrics & Furniture's warehouse overflows with thousands of yards of home décor fabrics by dozens of different designers. From fine velvets and silks, ideal for outfitting regal ottomans, to suedes and leathers, easily shaped into a motorcycle jacket for a love seat, the plethora of fabrics offer choices for upholstery, bedding, and drapery of any style. Patterned yardage—some of the most popular patterns range from $16.95–$25.95 per yard, trims—such as Tassel ($15.95 per yard) and drapery lining ($5.75 per yard) cover up couches, windows, and other obstinately nude furniture items that had been making house guests uncomfortable. Though a wide variety of prints are readily available, the shop will happily special order designer fabrics for customers seeking to adorn their duvet with the exact style of plaid found on their favorite formal kilt.
Paisley-skinned decorators need not despair, as the store's interior design staff, with more than 40 years of experience, can help match a pattern to any need. The locally owned warehouse is a 20-minute drive from Charlotte, and though not included in today's Groupon, in-home consultations are also available.
