“…we have never looked upon ourselves as ‘dealers in textiles.’ We regard textiles simply as one means of artistic expression…” — Theodore Greeff, President, Greeff Fabrics, Inc.
MAKER: Greeff Fabrics, Inc was founded in the US by Theodore Greeff in 1933 to make a wide range of mostly traditional style interior fabrics and wallcoverings, grouped in collections, for high-end interior designers. Jackson’s book points to Marion Dorn, John Little, Dan Rasmassen, and Dagmar Wilson as key designers from the 1940s and after.
1966 Greeff “Regatta” Fabric Sample
RARE! We’re so excited to present “Regatta,” an amazing 1966 lightweight canvas broadcloth cotton in an abstract, hand printed sailboat or yachting theme that was part of Greeff Fabrics’ mid-century Sun, Sea, and Sky Collection.
The piece has a painterly quality, and is such a stunning size! With its abstracted boats an evocative mood is created making it uniquely suited to being stretched over a canvas for use as a wonderful piece of art for a beach cottage, lake house, resort home or AirBnB, seaside restaurant or hotel — or any place with sailing decor.
If not used for wall art it could instead be made into the top of an oversized ottoman, the back or seat of a booth, for reupholstering part of a boat, a dog bed in a seaside or lake home, a kite, or even cutting out the individual sailboats to craft into a mobile.
