Good Questions: Great Upholstery Resources in DC?

ATDC reader Jocelyn needs to reupholster a new find for her sitting room:

I recently bought this chair (unsigned and not original upholstery) and table to create a nice sitting/reading area by the window. I'm not crazy about the fabric, and it's is much dirtier than shows up in the picture. Where can I get reasonably priced upholstery fabric? Also, does anyone know the maker or style of the table? It was a great find on ebay for about $30, the chair I bought locally for $60. Thanks!

Jocelyn,

We love the existing fabric- too bad it is too dirty to retain! We've always been impressed by the selection of upholstery fabric at G Street Fabrics in Rockville. They have periodic sales where you can get a hefty percentage off both the fabric and the reupholstery work (if you don't plan to do it yourself).

Does anyone else have suggestions for fabric resources? Can anyone help Jocelyn ID her table?
