The brightly patterned curtain fabric uses bold colours and spiky, abstract patterns to create a modern 1950s look. This particular fabric also featured in an article entitled ‘Setting Up Home’ in House & Garden magazine. Publications such as The Curtain Book and House & Garden were hugely influential among British consumers during this period.
