When it comes to finding beautiful silks and other upholstery fabrics, there is no better place than The Silk Trading Company. Located on La Brea, (and now with a new outlet store: 8525 Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90035. Tel:310-659-2644), Silk Trading Company constantly shines, and while the prices are rather high ($50-$150 for just a yard) the materials are spectacular and there is often a good sale going on. The store is also known for their Drapery out-of-a-box collection. But don't be fooled by the pre-packaged beauties. A single panel of their Deanna drape will set you back over $700. We're not saying "buy it", we're just saying, "look how pretty!"
Surprisingly, their simple line of furniture also rules. Maybe it’s seeing these classic shapes decked out in the store's Mohairs and Silks, but we like the Finetto Sofa even if it does cost over $3000.00. Also pretty are great tassels, pillows and there is even a beautiful fabric-handbag or two for the ladies.
