America has enjoyed a long tradition of textile manufacturing, from Betsy Ross cross-stitching the Constitution to Neil Armstrong knitting Apollo 11. Load up on luxurious linens with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of fabric and more at Zimman's in Lynn.
Zimman's is a multifloored menagerie of fine silks, wovens, chenilles, jaquards, prints, sheers, velvets, mohairs, decorative textiles, and decorative trim. Residence-renovators can peruse a panoply of fabric styles ($1.99–$149.99 per yard) on their own, or Zimman's team of experienced design associates can help navigate row upon row of stylized, simple, and chromatically scintillating textiles from top designers. Dress antique doorstops in one of 26 varieties of Thai silk shantung ($29.95) or revamp a high-school-mascot costume in one of 140 tones of 100% silk Dupioni. A destination for design enthusiasts, set designers, and dressmakers, Zimman's will also work with clients to create custom-made fabrics. Their staff of designers will partner with mills around the world to weave wares based on a sample swatch, photo, or sock-puppet eyebrows.
Peruse Zimman's upper-floor furniture emporium for its choice collection of rugs, lighting, and accessories, or outfit apertures with a set of new custom window treatments. Homeowners can also bring in well-seasoned seats for a full-scale reupholstery service. Zimman's furniture fiends will strip down your sofa, love seat, chair, or ottoman to its chewy nougat center and rebuild it with new padding, cushioning, and flaming tail fins.
Prices for window treatments and reupholstery services vary depending on the scope of the project; contact Zimman's for more information.
