Geometric Hallway With FF088

FF088 a geometric pattern for lino

Geometric patterns look really good in a large space such as hallway because they give depth and size to the room pushing outwards the walls and raising the ceiling.

In the 1950s geometric patterns began to be freed from the ornamentation of the pre-war years and a clean and natural design was developed using just simple shapes and with no attempt at ornamentation. This was a very much in keeping with the new look emerging after the war of clean simple lines and unfussy and natural forms.

This found expression particularly in linoleum and the lino shown here is a typical blue pattern which could have been found in thousands of hallways, kitchens and bathrooms across the United Kingdom. As well as blue, which was probably the most popular colour, this pattern would have been available in greens and browns and possibly in a form of red. I will adapt this pattern to other colours and post them in the next day or so to see the contrast and the look that is obtained.
