Striped Sofa Fabric Pattern Swatch

Stripes and similar patterns are very useful because they both look decorative and help to show off the lines and dimensions of the furniture to which they are attached.

Stripes, too, have been with us in most decades and are a staple when it comes to both fashion, home and furnishing fabrics. For this pattern, I have used a stripe that could have been found mid-century and to help with the mid-century look I have used colours from the British Standard palette that would have been in use at the time.

The background is lovely montella, a colour which you tend not to see used much today. In fact, montella is a nice background since it is not dark like chocolate and neither is it too light like, for example, Congo brown. It tends to sit calmly out of the way which makes it a good foil for the foreground motif. Teamed with this are stripes of tawny red, Baltic blue, moss green, jasmine and brass.

As a pattern used to cover a sofa it is, I feel, both eye-catching and sophisticated and seems to give a lift to my rather everyday living room.
