An unusual sample in that this piece runs full width at 55.5″ while it’s a short length at 23.5″. Still, “Printemps,” a 1980 Bassett McNab 100% cotton broadcloth, #7122 in the archive, designed by Naida McSherry, offers more than enough fabric for a chair back and seat, or even a small settee back or seat. This design has such clear and bold illustrative technique making each flower and vine pop from the background, creating a stunning visual focal point.
COLORS: A clean brown background with salmon and millennial pink rose-like flowers, blue lotus-like flowers, and yellow trumpet flowers share the limelight with multi-toned green foliage and blue berries (or buds).
SIZE: 55.5″ wide x 23.5″ long
A set of scraps of this fabric is also available.
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.
