It seems Spring is fluttering right past us! It has been a beautiful season so far and to further celebrate it, we are gearing up for a fun event at the store…Butterfly Days! What is Butterfly Days you may ask? It is twelve days of deals and specials and all kinds of fun!

It begins Tuesday April 19th  partnered with our biannual Cabi trunk show and will extend through the end of the month. There will also be a huge event on Saturday the 23rd throughout the entire plaza! Music, food & drink and those awesome discounts too!

Right now we are putting together our special discount “fortune cookies”. Aren’t they cute?

These little cookies will arrive on the 23rd and are packed with sweet surprises! Inside each one is some form of discount or dollars off a purchase and you get one with every in-stock purchase of $50 (that’s right, if you spend $100 you get two fortune cookies for future savings!!).*

It is going to be so much fun and a great time to come in and get those finishing touches to spruce up your space for all those guests coming by for graduation parties, bridal showers.. or (even better) just because you want something new and fresh for the season!

New Season with New Fabrics – Welcome Spring & Summer with a New Look for Your Home #SpruceUp4Spring #WeDoCustom

With the first hint of spring, that instinctive feeling surfaces within us to freshen our homes, lighten the colors and textures and remove that cozy comfort we’ve enjoyed through the winter season. New, fresh and bright fabrics start rolling in and our imaginations soar with creative ideas for change. Each new textile speaks to it’s destination as a pair of pillows, window treatments or a stunning re-upholstery project. The color, the scale, the subtle shade of blue or green seem to call out their perfect place. New flat trims and cording are intentional companions.

This spring unlike any other, we are unwrapping some of the most beautiful decorative fabrics! It’s pure joy to unveil the newest the industry has to offer. Stay connected with Chrysalis Fine Fabrics Tallahassee to #SpruceUp4Spring and bring new life to your spaces. Be inspired with some of our favorite images on Pinterest!

New Bunny Williams Rugs for Dash & Albert

Recently we added  a new rug to our inventory and it is sooooo beautiful and bright for spring! Gypsy Stripe Woven Cotton is one of our favorites! This woven cotton area rug travels freely from room to room with its unique blend of weaving techniques and bohemian mix of golds, reds, and jewel tones.

2015-03-09 06.59.17 Many home owners and designers as well, use a rug as the major inspiration or foundation of a room design. With the iconic Interior Designer Bunny Williams, the rug designs and materials are sophisticated, durable and practical for everyday living.

The durability of the Indoor/Outdoor Rugs is unsurpassed. Made of recycled materials, the Indoor/Outdoor rugs are super easy to clean. See HOW TO CLEAN

Here at the store, we love our decorator fabrics and are constantly inspired to create new window treatments, bedding, pillows and headboards with special touches of designer trim, wallpaper, the occasional vintage chair or sofa, and more than likely, a perfect rug or two. As a matter of fact, we do custom almost everyday!

As you can see, the bedroom below has all the elements of great design, creating a comfortable yet sophisticated space. Grounding the large master bedroom with a textured rug from Dash & Albert is a perfect place to begin. The Alhambra Wool Tufted Rug is a Spanish-inspired pattern translated into a soft tufted wool rug. The crown moldings pop in white against the Sherwin Williams “blonde” paint.

A balance of textures, color and pattern throughout the room add interest, and the symmetry of the lamps and art add to the completed look. DSC_0155 Our own Danna Rutledge created this space making exquisite choices in fabrics, design elements and accessories. The room is a perfect example of what Chrysalis Fine Fabrics has to offer. The woven medallion Suncrest draperies in jute are ready-made panels mounted on custom painted Antique Drapery hardware using rings for easy closure for additional light control. The window treatments are both beautiful and functional; must-have features! The large gold dot fabric on the custom cushions repeat the circular motif in the panels and marry well with the two Chinese Chippendale side chairs.

A guest room received a special touch when Danna added euros and pillow shams. Note the creative use of button closures on the simple pillowcase design. Both fabric patterns (different scales) work beautifully with the blue comforter and coral mattelasse coverlet and shams. Again, the room is grounded with a stunning jute rug over hardwood. The Marco Red Jute Woven Rug has a soumak weave background and cut-pile pattern. Due to the handcrafted nature, some variation in the height of the pile is expected. The Dash & Albert rug is available in six (6) sizes and four (4) color combos. Note the adorable “Rocky” standing by his favorite rug…. and Sophie posing as if she was in a Dash & Albert ad!

The new powder bath is a showstopper with our Halie Circle wallcovering in aqua from  Thibaut’s Enchantment Collection. DSC_0140 Roman Shades are trending in 2014 and this beautiful working shade adds simple sophistication to a guest room and privacy when needed. The swag valance on bamboo rods sit above a bankette with custom cushions, pillows and matching cushions on rattan chairs. The entire kitchen/breakfast area is pulled together cohesively with grasscloth wallcovering from Thibaut. DSC_0157

sarah mainimage barclay-butera richardson_logo richardson_headshotKravet proudly announces a new collection of fabrics from Sarah Richardson, the designer and personality behind HGTV’s Sarah’s House and Sarah 101 TV series. Sarah’s signature approach to interiors blends classic influences with modern innovation to find the right balance for today. Kravet and Richardson collaborated to create a collection of fabrics that reflect her signature style and fresh approach to design and interiors. Stylized floral prints on linen combine with versatile geometric prints in a variety of scales, and are anchored by textural woven elements. The Sarah Richardson Collection for Kravet offers a series of complementary palettes to encourage designers to layer, experiment, and create their own vision of comfortable elegance, while the variety of patterns supports Richardson’s philosophy that every fabric should be able to be mixed and matched to create an easy and relaxed ambiance and a unique style statement. – See more at: http://www.kravet.com/products/collections/sarahrichardson/#sthash.A6GQlKAN.dpuf filicia_logo filicia_headshotInterior designer Thom Filicia is universally known for creating modern, yet classic interiors that retain an inviting aesthetic and reflect the individuality of his clients.

Based on Filicia’s American chic aesthetic, this collection features easy, relaxed basics as well as bold signature prints. His collection of upholstery and case goods, launching in 2014, includes relaxed basics as well as unexpected wood finishes, metallic accents and thoughtful details that embody the quality and craftsmanship that lies at the heart of his brand. Thom’s collection of sophisticated trimmings, cords, and novelty tapes offer the perfect finishing touch to any upholstery project. His collection of drapery hardware conveys his sense of relaxed sophistication, and can be used to create stunning windows with a chic, modern look. – See more at: http://www.kravet.com/products/collections/thomfilicia/#sthash.qHOZVtsU.dpuf butera_logobutera_headshotDesigner Barclay Butera is best known for design projects that are quintessentially all-American with a West Coast twist.

Butera’s high-style prints for Retreat feature a washed, easy palette of soft, calm neutrals; perfect for creating a relaxing calming environment. Bungalow offers a whimsical-chic mix of explosive colors, ultra-modern fresh and fun.
