A Dual Use Mid-Century Fabric

The Processing Java environment allows, amongst other great things, for simple patterns to be easily created and reproduced.

This is one such pattern intended for textiles and which is shown in two variations in the illustrations above. Firstly the curtains are deliberately kept low-key in order to make them lighten and frame the room without catching the eye with too much detail. Once again the colours are taken from the mid-century palette and designed to blend into the image.

The second pattern uses a different colour scheme and is shown as a fabric on the cushions. This pattern is bolder and stronger and intended to draw the eye to the sofa and into the centre of the room. Again the colours are mid-century colours but this time they provide a focus for attention.

The background used for both patterns is a mid-century magnolia created as a texture using Filter Forge and then imported into Processing.

To give you a clearer look at the pattern and at the background there is also a detailed image which shows a close-up of the cushions and the curtains.

On our Flickr page, which is here, there are larger versions of these images together with two swatches showing just the patterns.
