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…

Colorful Painted Chairs with Graphic Patterns: East Village Fabric
Classic Lines with an Unexpected Print: Jackie Fabric
Dramatic Upholstered Headboard: Marilyn Fabric
High-Contrast Pillows: Lakeview Fabric
Sunny, Retro Pillows: Tillinghast Fabric
High-Key Pairings: Mary 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.

To get you started, here are a few upholstery how-to's from the AT archives:
