Chances are you would have come across mid-century patterns if you’re into interior design. Very popular in the 50s and 60s, minimalism and simple repetition ruled with this trend.
Even today, they’re still very much in vogue. You can understand the appeal for these designs. They’re striking, geometric, reminiscent of things we can all relate with and at times nostalgic. Nowadays, it is more common to find people seeking interesting modern interpretations.
What’s not to like about the sheer simplicity in the patterns used? The bold contrasting colours are a staple which means they’re nothing but bold and beautiful. A perfect match for anyone who likes full on colour.
One very popular design is the Dandelion clocks pattern which was designed by Fiona Howard for Sanderson in 2008.
Going down memory lane, a textile designer well known in her days for brilliant designs was Lucienne Day. The ‘Calyx’ which she designed for Heal’s in 1951 was the fabric that brought her fame.
Orla Kiely is another lady whose name rings a bell when it comes to mid century patterns. Her designs are literally on everything.
Even some designs like this Aquila wallpaper design in our Stellar collection have been said to have mid-century feel to them too albeit a modern take. We sure didn’t see that coming but we’re more than happy to take the compliment.
With applications on wallpaper, fabric, wall art and even custom headboards, you’ll agree that these designs are very versatile. Inspired? Why not look to infuse this into your home?
