Fun fabrics

usual shop august 014usual shop august 015My mother still has the largest collection of tablecloths known to humanity – especially considering the fact that she has only one table in her house – but parted with three as a sort-of boat-warming gift. The first two, from the same swatch of fabric (wish that had not been divided) have a nice ’50s feel to their design; not quite Lucienne Day, but rather fun. They might make curtains for the rear doors. And secondly, a swathe of ’60s-ish geometric print, courtesy of near-contemporary IKEA and now covering the little drop-leaf table in the boat’s front cabin. There’s a slightly Scandinavian vibe (via IKEA and Habitat) developing there, not least due to the floor-to-ceiling natural wooden panelling and the lighter wood-effect (but still convincing) new laminate flooring.
