Mid-Century Design xar134

Mid-Century Design xar134

This design, xar134, is based on fabric designs that appeared in the 1950s and were not, so far as I am aware, based themselves on previous designs.

The idea was a simple one: to take a series of squares in a geometric pattern and fill the squares with designs. The designs used here are representative of the kind of mid-century patterns that began to appear after the end of the Second World War in that they are abstract. However designs like this could well have had silhouettes of everyday objects or even the more mundane leaf designs and I will create some of these later.

A wide variety of base colours are possible and the fabric is shown as curtain material in the Country Dining room in just three variations. As well as curtain material this pattern, in the small, could well have been used as a furnishing material and I will try this for tomorrow’s post.

The image above just shows the pattern and the Dining Room images are on Flickr at a larger size and, as ever, the URL is here.
