This stunning one-of-a-kind 1980s chintz comforter/bedspread offers grandmillennial style through the roof! Will make a timeless style statement in a stand out room!
The owner of this piece had it completely custom made in the 1980s — a comforter, headboard, drapes, and fabric-covered window valance box — though we only sourced the vintage bedspread/comforter for our shop.
Made of Bassett McNab’s (Stout’s) Honeycomb fabric ($105.+ / per yard) on one side, with that same fabric forming the border on the other side around the vibrant floral chintz quilted inset. Expressive flowers in the chintz inset — peonies, sweet peas, carnations, and richly detailed foliage. Custom craftsmanship executed to the highest standard.
FABRIC/FIBER: 100% cotton chintz with subtle sheen; Hypoallergenic polyfill.
STYLE: Appears to be heavy poly-filled and extensively baffle quilted. Self-welt finish on the sides and bottom.
SIZE: Clearly oversized for completely covering a bed or for tucking large scale pillows the dimensions are 91″ wide by 118″ long (can fit a queen through a California KIng depending on the look you’re going for) . The central floral chintz inset on the front is 46.75″ x 74.5″.
COLORS: Stout’s Bassett McNab Honeycomb fabric is plum, lavender, white, and black. The chintz floral inset is white, sky blue, teal, olive, avocado, millennial pink, dusty rose, cranberry, and plum.
CONDITION: Excellent overall and for its 30 year old age. Two small stains (see pics # & # — very inconsequential given the busy pattern and may come out with aggressive treatment).
ALTERNATIVE USE: Could also be deconstructed for tons of fabric.
SHOP NOTE: I’m all about sustainability. ALL of my packaging (boxes, envelopes, tissue, ribbons, padding) except tape is 100% reused. To avoid using more paper and ink, I only include invoices by request — your invoice is available digitally in your account. Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
With my products, together you and I help reduce earth impacts since I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on the planet, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. And since Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, this approach is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
