This early 1960s piece is a feast for the eyes. Everything is a standout — the firm hand of the fabric, the vivid richness of the colors, the statement-making lines in the feather detail, the leaves, and the flowers. The illustrative style has Indienne elements. Will remain classic for generations and perfect for grandmillennial style, cottage chic, granny chic, and naturalists.

MAKERS: Bailey & Griffin was founded in 1923 as an importer of textile designs coming from the UK firm Arthur H. Lee & Co., but by the mid 60s was sourcing raw textiles and designing their own line of traditionally inspired prints, all handprinted! Like so many other fabric houses there were plenty of mergers with the B&G archive ultimately ending up in the Duralee family of fabrics.
What Can You Make With This? A pillow, Roman shade for a small sized window, piecing for quilts, piecing for fashion accessories, more. Large enough to cover a small-med dining room chair, lamp shade, a couple of message boards, or for the back (or other part) of a chair or settee when a different fabric is used on other parts of the piece, such as this designer is doing: https://w9yards.com/custom-chairs/
