This Piece: Own a piece of 20th century design history with this fabulous 1960s Robert Lester “Ripple” fabric, #6894 in the Bassett McNab archive. Hand printed to boot!
A very clean and simple design of minimalist, rippling rows, iconically representing Mid Century Modern style.
COLORS: See the last picture for the truest take on the brown color — otherwise it’s white, black, russet, and a cool, modern gray.
Sample Size: 27″ wide x 52″ long
What Can You Make With This? A pillow, Roman shade for a small window, backgrounds for message boards, and more. Large enough to cover the seat of a small dining room chair, or for 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/
MAKER: With its roots in Philadelphia as early as 1894, Bassett McNab was officially incorporated in 1921. Always a traditional design house currying in the finest textiles and historically based designs, Bassett McNab was a leader in fine American textiles of the 20th century. The company has had many mergers and changes in ownership over time, while retaining ties to the original family and always maintaining the original finer design aesthetics and archival references that define its style and making them relevant to successive design ages. By 2019 Bassett McNab was acquired by the American firm Stout Brothers Co., Inc., which was founded in 1927.
Why High-End Vintage Fabric Samples? Because the large over size sample and superior manufacturing quality make it possible to access a very high-end fabric for a smaller scale project without the high cost of these classic vintage fabrics, which often begin at over $150 a yard, if they can still be found at all. Other reasons are to access a small amount of discontinued fabric to match or to repair an existing piece in your home.
