Railway Seat Pattern Swatch

Mid-century trains had some really nice patterning on the seats and a lot of it was made by well-known and influential artists, many of whom went on to become household names in the 1950s and 60s.

The set for this pattern uses a rather nice carriage that I got from Daz 3D and represents the sort of corridor train that would have been a common sight mid-century. The pattern is a strong one, probably too strong to be used as curtaining or as cushions but as a seat in a train it is ideal. The carriages were not particularly well lit and so bright colours could be used along with bold patterns. This pattern uses Post Office red, a mid-century British Standard colour which makes the seats look inviting and interesting for the passengers.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns on my fabulous and ever-growing Flickr page which is here.
