The New Mod Pieces Fabric Collection + Lookbook Are Here!

I've been hard at work since the One of a Kind Show & Sale designing a signature line of fabrics for Mod Pieces. Today, it feels great to finally share them with you!

Each of our twelve prints are available in multiple colours. Purchase them as pillows, lamp shades, or yardage for your next upholstery or drapery project.

See the full collection in our latest Lookbook & pick up your favourite piece in the Mod Pieces store.

Please help us spread the word by sharing, pinning & tweeting about our latest addition to the Mod Pieces line.

Check Out Mod Pieces iPhone Cases + More on Society6

Recently, I've branched out into pattern design. I've been hard at work on designing my own collection of fabrics for use on custom lamp shades + more!

(Check back for more on that very soon!)

While that's in the works, I figured why not apply my designs to other products as well. Society6 turned my designs into iPhone and iPad cases, digital art prints, stretched canvases, stationary cards + more!

This is just a sample of what you'll find. Head on over to my Society6 shop to view each design in additional colours! Use the navigation to the right to view items by product, or just click on a pattern to see which products it's available in.

You can help me spread the word about this new venture by sharing your fave designs on social media directly from each product page (they've made it super easy).

While browsing, don't forget to hit the "promote" button on the individual product pages to help boost my work within the Society6 marketplace.

Thanks for your support!
