Aff418 Upholstery

Patterns on furniture such as sofas and armchairs seems to be either extremely bold and eye-catching or else they are quite sombre and subdued.

The thinking, I have always assumed, behind this is that furniture should not be overreactive to the environment since that does make it difficult to change the colour scheme in the room. Only other hand, of course, furniture which has a more restrained pattern can often remain unnoticed amongst the other elements.

I have created this pattern in an attempt to make an upholstery fabric which is neither eye-catching, gaudy or difficult to match and yet which is not the sort of pattern which passes unnoticed. The elements that make up the pattern are, I hope, both good from a distance and also interesting from close to in order to provide interest for the visitor sitting, for example, in the chair.

The colours are from my extended, mid-century palette while the motifs owe their origin to the kind of motifs that would have been used in the 1970s.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
