Mid-Century Leaves On The Sofa

Furnishings always seemed a little boringly upholstered throughout the war years and before but then came the explosion in design that was the 1960s.

What particularly differentiates mid-century from all that came before is its treatment of leaves. Before mid-century leaves were draw with almost photographic accuracy but suddenly highly stylised shapes began to appear that took just the outline of objects.

These leaves are shown at a large scale – perhaps larger than would have been appropriate mid-century – but using very 1960s colours from the British Standard palette in use at the time. The effect is furniture that makes a statement in the room and is not afraid to stand up and be counted.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and our other work on our Flickr page which is here.
