The next home had a designers perspective, from a non-designer. I couldn’t believe that Fran is not a professional interior designer by trade, as her gorgeous home was decorated in what I would describe as Hollywood Regency meets French Countryside. Fran, our customer, was a breath of fresh air, as was her beautiful home. I instantly knew I had to photograph every space, regardless of if it had our fabric. “How’s this for fabulous?” her husband teased of his office that was full of recording and editing equipment. When I told her my husband’s office was just as messy and full of fabric books from floor to ceiling, Fran gave U-Fab the kindest compliment. She told me that she used to live in Los Angeles and would shop at the garment district weekly. She would spend hours perusing and very much enjoyed the many stores this bustling fabric row had to offer. Well upon moving to Charlottesville and finding U-Fab, Fran says the very first time she visited our store, she turned to her husband and said “They have better fabric than LA!” Her husband raised his hand and shook his head in agreement, and from there a romance was born.

Pretty little details.
