Is there some sort of alternative since the custom milled version is sold out, to find a similar fabric to those used on kirks bed , Burke chairs and so on ?
A tough one. That's why we decided at STC to have fabric custom woven (a very expensive exercise), because the actual fabric -- or even a close facsimile -- remains elusive.
Yeah, and unfortunately was not really versed in this hobby when the fabric by the yard was being sold ..oh well ....
There are a couple of similar examples out there but without the gold threading
yes -- in fact STC used a different fabric in earlier episodes that was orange checkerboards....close, but not quite as vivid as the original. Of course, we could always have more fabric made -- but the cost would choke you.
