curtain material / fabric?

Hi, On tv I've seen designers/home owners go through thick books of fabric and material swatches, does anyone know the type of store that would have them? I've looked in a JoAnn Fabrics Superstore, but nothing really caught my eye. I'm looking for some curtain and pillow material. I want a large repeat, maybe floral or tropical, but a "Modern" one and nothing too feminine. Vintage material use to have some interesting designs, but hard to find now a days. Any ideas? Thank you. Jos

The larger Joann's have hanging fabric samples that are special order only. These are decorator fabrics.
Or you could go to a decorator and look at their books.

Some Hancock's fabric stores have a decorator department.

Stores that offer home decor made to order (curtains, slipcovers, etc.)have those swatch books. & yeah - interior decorators have 'em for sure....

Thank you for your help. I'm in the Fort Lauderdale area and I must be doing the wrong online searches. I've called a couple of Interior Designers, but getting an answer from them was difficult because they spend the entire conversation trying to make an appointment at my house when all I want is to look through their book of samples. I will keep trying, eventually something will come up. Thanks again. Jos

Hancock's of Paducah (not the same company as Hancock's) - has on-line catalogue and will send you an actual catalogue - very good quality fabric.
