Jim Thompson Silk Is Not Helping My Fabric Addiction




Seeing that I seem to troll the internet for fabric on almost a daily basis, I thought I'd end the week with some photos of Jim Thompson Silk and No. 9 Thompson's new Spring collections. There were so many fabrics that caught my eye...like that Velvet Illusion, below, which would lend an El Morocco vibe to one's room. Tiger Hills might be a great substitution for the Braquenié print that slayed me last week (the one on Jayne Wrightsman's canapé and fauteuils). And for sheer drama I included the fabulous Ayuthya, at top, because it looks pretty spectacular. So on that note, I'm off to walk my condo and find something-anything- that needs a little refreshing with some new fabric.

  1. I'm a great fan of their fabric, and it's wonderful to see it here in all its glory. I just posted about a piece of chenille that I will use to reupholster wing chairs in my master bedroom.

  12. I'm obsessed with Jim Thompson. I used several recently in projects and clients have fallen in love too. That's always the sign of a great fabric line in my book. Hope you are well.

  13. I love Jim Thompson fabrics and all the myths around his disappearance. his house in Bali is a must see (even if you need to fight hordes of tourist) and one cannot walk empty handed from any of his Bangkok store.
