Green Fabric Design

Green Fabric DesignGreen Fabric DesignModern day furniture fabric seems to suffer from the same problem that I think plagues walls and curtains in that so much of the, for example, sofa coverings are single coloured. Whilst this architecturally looks nice, it does tend to make the furniture boring and, after a while, appear nondescript and ready for a change.

So, to counteract this, I began by deciding not to make too much change and so I chose a nice, solid green and added mid-century inspired motifs intended to complement the colour and lift it to make it more decorative. I also tried to make the pattern interesting so that the fabric could stand perhaps the test of time. The result is shown here on a typical living room sofa.

Few colours are used but they are from the mid-century palette in use at the time and are mid Brunswick green for the background and then simply chartreuse, Post Office red and brass to complete the motif.

If you would like to see larger versions of these designs and my other work then you can do so on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
