Mid-century lino design

Another excellent and extremely practical lino today which owes much of its inspiration to mid-century linoleum patterns.

The design is a very simple pattern of squares, a motif which goes so well in rectangular rooms to emphasise both the width and the depth. The lino does not have a ‘way’ and could be used in any direction which, again, emphasises the size of the room.

I have shown just one example and one colour although this motif was used over and over again in many different forms to produce linoleum for domestic and also for commercial use where it was used in hotels and (on a smaller scale) offices.

I produce these 3-D models in order to show what the pattern looks used in a typical setting. I feel that this is much more useful than simply showing a swatch of the pattern which gives no idea of the scale at which it is used or the type of product for which it is intended.

For this reason I produce the 3-D models quite quickly although I do take time to make them as realistic as I can and I have spent time trying to make this particular image look better than those that preceded it.
