Back from a long weekend in Pennsylvania, and it's time to get back to work!
Upon arriving back home I was greeted by a pile of envelopes just waiting for me to rip open. Nicole and I started receiving all of the new fabric samples we requested for our latest residential project, but we are always collecting a ton of fabric swatches that we plan to use for any current or future projects. Now that our collection is growing larger everyday, the best way to file these are by developing a designated fabric library. Here are some fabulous fabric library solutions to inspire us.

This is what I hope my studio looks like one day.

Kishani Pereras interior design studio, she uses an Ikea EXPEDIT Shelving unit finished on all sides, it can even be used as a room divider.

You can perfectly fit baskets and file folders in this bookshelf.

Although this is a laundry, I love the use of pink tags to label all of your fabrics.

This is a great way to organize your swatches, the hard part is keeping it this way!

I find that separating fabrics by colorway works best.

Fold over your fabric samples with file separators.

Show off your favorite fabrics in clear bins from the Container Store , and store the rest in the bottom drawers.
