The Hallway 1950s style with FF078

The Hallway 1950s style with FF078

Today we have the same suburban hallway again but this time with a quite different and very distinctive and striking mid-century design.

Simple geometric patterns have been used for ever as design devices and under the Victorians they were developed into quite complex and sophisticated patterns. However, after the Second World War designers continued to create much simpler and less intrusive patterning and the square received a lot of attention as a floor covering decoration. One reason is that it makes for a simple pattern to produce and another reason is that it shows up the dimensional is of a room and it gives to the room form and shape.

This can clearly be seen in the distinctive pattern shown here which uses a quite bright colour which shows how to use a distinctive pattern in a small area. As a lino for this particular hall, well, maybe not but this is, in a sense, make-believe. Having said that, I have to admit that this is a patterning that I like and I have therefore made some similar patterns which you will see over the next couple of days and from which you can see the effect of a more restrained colour.
