Hudson Valley Lighting, Robert Abbey, and Hinkley would be who I would go to. That have great classic styles and can be found on-line at competitive prices. I also think that Rejuvenation Hardware has great bang for it's buck.

I don't live in NY so you would have to find a local upholstery store, or even fabric showroom but as an Interior Designer I like to use Kravet http://www.kravet.com/ and Robert Allen http://www.robertallendesign.com/ Both manufacturers have a wide variety of price points but the joy is you can search by color/style/use and then jot down the numbers and start calling around to find a good price or order a sample.
