V&A 1950's Textiles 2017 Calendar

The 1950s saw an explosion of textile designs for furnishing fabric, borne out of the need for exciting new designs to cover outdated items of furniture, especially as the 1950s saw the fabric rationing restrictions of 1940s Britain come to an end.

This calendar with patterns from V&A collections features furnishing fabric designs from designers such as Kenneth Rowntree and Sylvia Chalmers.

Informative text accompanies each work and the datepad features previous and next month’s views.
