Leafy Seats

Mid-century inspired pattern

Leafy Seats

I’ve probably said this before, but I do like doing patterns for commercial vehicle seats such as buses, coaches and ships. I think I know why and its tied in with my love of patterns because there’s something very appealing about looking at a row of seats all of which have the same design.

Once again, I have used my set showing the inside of the bus and for the seats I have used a loose leaf pattern at quite a relaxed scale which I think gives a pleasing and harmonious look to the row. The pattern is designed to show each seat individually since that is what travellers boarding a bus will look for first and for that reason the sense is ‘up and down’ but the pattern also takes the eye along the seats.

Buses, for the most part, are short duration transport allowing patterns to be quite obtrusive although I have designed this pattern to also be suitable for a longer journey. Hopefully, to demonstrate this, I have included on my Flickr page an image of this pattern applied to the train set showing the design on seats which may, perhaps, be used for a longer period. The effect here is to provide a more restful and inviting seat to encourage the passenger to enjoy the journey.

You can, should you wish, also see larger versions of this and my other work on my Flickr page which is here.
