20+ Stunning Fabrics for a Retro or Mid Century Modern Home

20+ Stunning Fabrics for a Retro or Mid Century Modern Home
Bren Sutton - Ink & BrayerHi fabric lovers!

Recently I had a really exciting brief - finding a patterned textile, for a client, for drapery in her mid-century modern home. At first glance it seemed very challenging and nothing felt quite the right match given it had to tie in with other details in her home, but I soon discovered a host of gorgeous fabric designs. 

Check out some of the stunners I found:

While these may not fit everyone's budget they are still great for inspiration or a 'feature' window. My client is still deciding, but leaning towards a wide-width Casamance textural weave in a burnt orange. It's not the patterned textile that we originally set out to find, but in polyester it is a more practical choice for a sun-drenched spot, and the colour complements her home beautifully. Some of these amazing pattern designs will make fabulous cushions, so we may still revisit them. That Lee Jofa Cascadia is looking like a winner!
I hope you enjoyed browsing through these gorgeous retro patterned textiles. If I can help you source the perfect fabric for your design project, please be in touch.
Have great day.
