Granny chic to the max!
A historic document piece, this 1980s upholstery weight nubbly textured canvas is from the Colonial Williamsburg reserve Collection and was made in partnership with Greeff Fabrics.
The repeating floral motif within vining floral lozenges is typical of the time, particularly in wallpaper. The large central flowers are contained in a speckled field.
With 9 yards available there’s more than enough to do dining room chair seats, a small settee, twin bead headboards, some curtains, lots of pillows, and more — perfect for 18th and early 19th century decor or similar inspirations. Very grandmillennial.
COLORS: Fresh and modern for their 18th century origins! On a creamy off-white background are celadon and a brownish-black.
SIZE: Large flowers in the lozenges are 2.5″ x 2.5″ and the lozenge itself is 5.5″ high x 5″ wide. Fabric is 60″ wide + a 1.5″ selvage on each side by 1 yard increments with up to 9 yards available. Discount of $51 for whole 9 yard purchase (can’t be combined with a coupon). Convo me to set up the special order with the discount.
FIBER: 100% cotton.
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.
By 1971, Greeff’s chief designer was a female, Virginia Nepodal. Lesley Jackson writes in her book Twentieth-Century Pattern Design that, “Virginia Nepodal, an in-house designer at Cheney Brothers during the 1940s, who transferred to the newly merged Cheney, Greeff & Co. during the early 1950s, worked in an accessible modern style, creating patterns such as Mushrooms, Sanderlings, and Seeds (all 1951). Subsequently, as design director of Greeff Fabrics from 1952 to 1985, Nepodal was responsible for the stylings of both textiles and wallpaper, where she juggled the dual requirements of ‘Contemporary’ and traditional design.”
