1970s sofa chair fabric pattern

I created a new pattern for the fabric shown on the 1970s sofa and chair and this pattern is displayed in the images above in a little more detail.

The 1970s period was full of innovation in patterns, much of which reflected the forward-looking artwork of the day. However, in my view, the patterning on furniture remained less innovative and drew more on classic, mid-century styling. For that reason, I created a pattern which is a simple, mid-century floral.

Have I make the pattern larger, and perhaps bolder than would have been appropriate in the early 1970s? Perhaps I have because I also had an eye to making this product look more appealing to a modern-day audience. Does that mean that it would have been less interesting if it were being offered for sale at that time? In my view, purchasers would be just as excited by the look created by the pattern and the way it emphasises the dimensions of the sofa and the chair. However, perhaps you might say that I would say that wouldn’t I!

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.
