Rich fabrics, warm colours, classic textures, and eye catching prints—we’ve picked the top six places you need to hit up if you’re looking for a refurbishment. Hopefully, we’re cut from the same cloth.

Cottons and Satins


We’re thinking reds, we’re thinking browns, a bit of Ikat, and a bit of weave. Cottons and Satins is a haven for Ikat prints and silk weaves, along with stripes on silk, self-printed fabrics, sheers, and so much more. Special love for the patchwork fabric they’ve got—something about it reminds us of our grandmothers and their houses.

#LBBTip: They’re open to colour customization {takes about 10 working days to process} and also anything you want woven {takes about 40 working days to process}.

Where: 50, Meherchand Market

Price: Starting at INR 650 for a metre of cotton fabric and INR 1,000 for silk; cushions for INR 2,250

Contact: 011 64592596, 011 24603159

Timings: 10 am – 7.30 pm

Sarita Handa


A great hub for quilts, bed linen, and decorative cushions—this is luxe with a capital L. Look for intricate embroidery on crisp linen, unusual check prints, and the famous suzani design, which is their masterpiece, in our opinion. They’re streets ahead of most when it comes to the art of embroidery, and we’ve seen that in every collection of theirs.

Where: 356/357, 2nd floor, Sultanpur, MG Road

Price: On request

Nehru Place and Shankar Market


These wholesale fabric markets have been around for decades and even though they tend to force you to make tough choices, you will always end up buying stuff from multiple stores and going home super satisfied. While you’re there, you might as well go DIY on some apparel.

#LBBTip: You could even use these fabrics to make Christmas stocking fillers, table runners, cushions, or even to wrap gifts!

Where: Nehru Place, Lala Lajpat Rai Road; Shankar Market {Opposite M Block}, Connaught Place

Price: Starting at INR 150 per metre

Hidden Gallery

Their collection of beautiful upholstery ranges from rich silks to cheerful florals and everything in between. There’s no comparison to the richness of their upholstery—whether it is the colour, the print, or the fabric.  Definitely on the pricier side, we say save them for the most important rooms in your house.

#LBBTip: Please check out their line of furniture while you’re there.

Where: A-6, Asola Homes, Near Shanidham Temple, Fatehpur Beri

Price: On request

12593622_10153996087589758_755407412962530589_oA relatively untapped upholstery store, Atmosphere is great for velvets, sheers, drapes, dual use fabrics, and embroidered specials. Again, it will make you shell out the big bucks, unless you score some ‘we only have so many meters of this fabric left’ deal, in which case you’ll get a discount. Since they are not into mass producing, you just might get lucky.

Where:  D-20, Defence Colony. Or shop online here.

Timings: 10.30am – 7.30pm; Sundays closed.

Price: Starting at INR 1,900 per metre
