Looks like a Marimekko design?

http://www.marimekko.fi/eng

Go there anyway for beautiful fabrics.

It's by Manuel Canovas
Name: Elsa col. Corail
Code: 1493/03

Canovas is owned by Colefax & Fowler, who own Cowtan & Tout in the U.S

I think you have to be a designer to buy through Cowtan, but I'm sure you will be able to find someone in your local area that has an account with them - pretty much everyone does.

Best of luck :)

Thank you, Vanya!

it's so lovely! have a chair it would look perfect on... but still looking bc would like to be able to cover the matching sofa in a coordinating fabric and it would be too much for both pieces in my space... might need to find something to use this on though, it's great!

Looks like Marimekko & Dorothy Draper had a child...love it. Glad the mystery was solved.

I would've guessed Marimekko as well. Manuel Canovas...who knew (well, Vanya did).

Very pretty!

while at cowtan and tout i saw your manuel canovas fabric. i picked up a sample if you want me to send it to you. totally beautiful but a little different to see it in person.

Oh, this is sooo weird!! Yesterday I checked out your blog and saw this post. Today, I received a small lot of old House & Garden magazines that I had bought on Ebay last week and while looking thru one of the issues (Jan. 2006) I saw a picture of this fabric! Yep, Canovas' Elsa. What a coincidence!
