1950s Lounge Curtain Fabric Swatch

Developing my 1950s theme and as a companion to the mid-century wallpaper that I showed yesterday and the day before, this is a surface design for a textile shown here as curtaining.

Floral patterns pre-war tended to be quite complex and this complexity began to unravel during the early mid-century period. This followed a general trend in art to make elements much simpler and to strip away any excess ornamentation.

The background to this textile is Atlantic blue while the motif is in either Post-Office red or alternatively canary yellow. The motif is stylised and the design is a simple one without any excess ornamentation and without any extra colouring. The effect is to produce a strong pattern that would have caught the eye of a visitor. In keeping with the trend of the 1950s the room also has a strongly patterned wallpaper. I have moved the camera a little closer to the wall so that the wallpaper is not quite so obvious.

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