1980s Jay Yang Sclamandré Chintz Floral
1 in stock
A rare and sumptuous 1980s Jay Yang Design Ltd. floral chintz that was adapted from the archives of Scalamandré. Lush colors beyond your wildest dreams, this floral foreground on an alternating stippled and plain wide-striped background allows for a truly remarkable grandmillennial statement.
Large flowers include peonies, stock, bellflowers, stylized bearded irises, asters, mums, and more…the expressive foliage is as richly detailed as the multi-hued and illustrative flowers.
A medium weight stiff glazed chintz cotton that’s suitable to upholstery — pillows, shams, table draping, café curtains, Roman shades, chair seats/backs etc. Large enough to be the back of or seat of a settee, top of an oversized ottoman/fabric coffee table, as a giant throw cushion, a fabric-covered twin bed headboard, or some other great design idea.
COLORS: The background stripes are off-white/creamy alternating with stippled taupe on off-white. The flowers are bubble gum pink, millennial pink, raspberry, white, mocha, teal, periwinkle, lavender, and dusty plum, with foliage in chartreuse, teal, mocha, and periwinkle with dark plum-black lines. Colors even more stunning than the photos show!
SIZE: 54″ wide + .5″ selvedge on each side x 88″ long (or 2 yards + 16″). Flowers range from .5″ buds to 4″ Irises, to 3″ x 4″ mums, to 8″ stock stems, and with foliage ranging from 2.5″ leaves to broad and lush 6″ leaves.
CONDITION: Superior! Uneven cutting at top and bottom is EXTRA fabric…measurements for length are the smallest measurements, there is a little extra in these uneven ends.
MAKER: Here’s a great New York Times article from 1979 about how Yang took the fabric design world by storm: https://www.nytimes.com/1979/02/15/archives/young-innovator-in-fabric-world-an-innovator-in-the-fabric-world.html
