A 1950s style curtain pattern

A 1950s style curtain pattern

Once again we are firmly back in the early years of the 1950s for this pattern which I have configured as a curtain material although there are many similar furnishing tasks which it could adequately perform.

These designs came to patterns from the modern art movement which has always been at the back of pattern design exerting its powerful influence. The idea was to use small elements with curved forms rather than straight edges and to embed these in a modern background. The background chosen here is a fabric type material made with Filter Forge and the colour used is BS3039 Chocolate, one of the most used British Standard colours. The fabric style background has been stretched to provide some texture for the render which adds to the Irwan texture filter in Cinema 4D.

There are a host of excellent patterns that appeared in the early (and exciting and inventive) years of the 1950s and which, so far as I know, have yet to be repeated although a revival, I believe, is long overdue.
