LA Good Questions: What Kind of Fabric to Recover This Sofa?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

AT reader Jacques has a gem of a sofa on her hands, ready to be reupholstered:

I’m looking for fabric to recover my mom’s sofa. It’s a Louis XV revival sofa that she and my dad bought in the seventies just before I was born. I have very fond memories of it but her cats have gotten to it over the years and it’s time to recover. I want to find some floral fabric in a similar style and color palette to what is on there now but since it’s a more seventies pattern than a classic pattern I am having trouble. Anyone have any good fabric sources they can point me to? Since we need about 10 yards and we aren’t high rollers, budget-friendly sources are even more appreciated!
