Another Railway Seat Pattern Swatch

The patterning on transport seats has changed a lot over half a century with the motifs and colours becoming much more vivid and exciting which is not to say that mid-century patterns were dull and uninteresting.

This pattern is intended to join both the mid-century liking for the simple repeat with the modern practice of using bolder and more striking colouring. In fact, the colours are taken directly from the mid-century palette – they are midnight blue and brass.

The intention behind this pattern is to create a seating that is both inviting to passengers and which is also stimulating and likely to create an enjoyable experience. The design is perhaps more suited to short journeys rather than long ones and, although shown here on a train, the pattern would be equally suitable for buses or possibly for waterborne use.

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.
