The hunt for fabric - with a strange twist

Ok, so I mentioned in the last post that I've been searching for some fabric to make myself a bedcover. I have something quite specific in mind really, and so of course, I just can't find anything I like, I always do this!
So I thought I'd put it out there, just in case any of you have seen something similar somewhere, and so can help me in my quest :)

Ok, so this is the fabric that is playing on my mind, the fabric on this couch, I just love it so much. I saw this image here on Pinterest (which is a wonderful discovery by the way, I'm warning you, if you visit, it can be quite a time waster, but just full of inspiration). It doesn't have to be exactly like this, but just something similar, big bold green flora of some sort (could be kind of like this).

favourite couch - fabric!

So I've been thinking about this fabric as I've been searching for something for my bedspread and then, I remembered, I'd seen something similar years ago, it was a chair, covered in a very similar style of fabric. I'd cut the picture out and put it in my scrapbook, this was years ago, like well before Liam was born, so maybe seven years ago. But I remembered it very well and knew exactly where the scrapbook was, so I pulled it out just now, thinking I'll take a picture of it also and put it on here to give you more of an idea of what I'm after, and then
WEIRD! Super strange amazing!
You wouldn't believe it. It's the same fabric. exactly. the. same.
Freaky.

Gorgeous fabric

I'm sorry, but that's just really weird. There must be something about me and this fabric. I wonder if I'll ever be able to find it.

Have you tried Martha's Furnishing Fabrics? They have some large scale prints like that but not sure what weight. Anyway, I'd say between Martha's and Centrepoint and Global, it's worth a trip into town!

There's still hope. My sister has some Josef Frank Curtains (hawaii pattern). They came from Decorator exchange in Wellington - it appears the Swedish embassy changes it curtains and parts with the most fantastic curtains every so often.
