Made from 100 percent organic cotton, Rubie Green's upholstery-grade fabrics are printed in the US using water-based, non-toxic inks. Designs are available in a range of modern and classic prints—no beige here. Searching the site, we came across some great ideas for using graphic patterns in your upholstery projects…

High-Contrast Pillows: Lakeview Fabric
Sunny, Retro Pillows: Tillinghast Fabric

Made from high-quality green materials using local production processes, Rubie Green's prints are $90/yard. If you love the look, but the price is too steep, consider using a discount fabric to the same effect.
