Designed by Sven Markelius for Ljungbergs, 1952
Hand printed with a double repeat and requires 18 screens. 15 colors create this dramatic design. The orange colorway hangs in the U.N. (71″x57″)
Buy it here, if you have money to burn. (And if you have enough cash left over, buy one for me, too! I’ll take orange, thx.)
It’s like the secret love child of Alexander Girard’s “Checker Split” fabric and that door in SoHo I’m crazy about:
Newburgh got a mention on “Mad Men” tonight….
Oh yeah? What was the mention?
I love that door too 🙂 see
and those patterns are fabulous!
ha ha, ‘secret love child’. That’s SO what it looks like!
Reminds me of these on 20X200 (but a little different)… http://www.20×200.com/art/2009/09/nonsensical-infographic-no-1.html
That door is pretty rad.
Magchunk, I love geometric textiles and design — thanks for the link! 🙂
Did you see this post on AT? These backgammon boards look a lot like that SoHo door!
*GASP* Those backgammon boards are GORGEOUS! Wow.
Anna, I think you will like this bedding:
I am in love with that door too!
Oh, that is my favorite pattern of all time! Everytime I visit our http://www.designmuseum.se/ I just have to go and see it. Thank god it’s a part of the permanent collection.
oh my goodness, this is crazy expensive! poor college students cant afford such luxury, lol. great pattern though. =) i think i like the blue myself. now, if they had purple, i MIGHT be willing to trade in a couple of classes for one… =P just kidding.
Beautiful! I read on Elisabeth Dunker’s blog about this book:
Maybe start with that first if you don’t have money to burn… 😉
Back gammon, bed linen and crazy expensive wall hangings, oh my! All gorgeous. Can I add my coffee table to the link love? http://www.homebug.net/2008/04/before-after-hand-painted-geometric.html
You should check out some of Todd Chilton’s work, you would probably like it! It reminds me of this. http://www.toddchilton.com/portfolio.html
These were in my dream last night! Ever since I saw this post I’ve not been able to get them off my mind!
And those backgammon boards, now I want to learn to play!
Ironically, I was looking at Marimekko fabric online today, and came upon this. It is stunning! If I had the cash, I’d go for it. Really exceptional.
so, so good!
