Traditional Upholstery Brought Up To Date

As most of you will know, transport fabrics and upholstery fabrics are a particular favorite here at 20th century 3D.

These days if you look at sofas and armchairs you will very rarely see a distinctive pattern although, I think it is true, this trend seems to be changing once again. Look back to mid-century, however, and the situation was a little different. Patterns from the 1950s and 1960s tended to become more dominant with those in the latter decade being perhaps more pronounced.

However the trend is for furnishing fabric to look a little less eye-catching although this does not mean that the design has to be boring. Mid-century ideas and motifs inspired this particular design and the effect that I wanted to create was one of a subtle pattern they became more obvious as you were about to sit down.

It is difficult to show a variety of images here but I’m our Flickr page – a link to that page is here – you will see a larger image together with a detailed image which shows the pattern to a greater degree.

The design was created with Adobe Illustrator and the set used is my simple furniture set with the image rendered in Cinema 4D.
