George Nelson (1908-1986) was one of the foremost industrial designers of the 20th Century. Both his designs and writings garnered him lasting acclaim as a founding father of American modernism.

His innovative design concepts caught the attention of the then president of Herman Miller, D. J. De Pree, and in 1945 he was invited to join their roster of prominent artists. While working for Herman Miller, George Nelson collaborated with such renowned designers as Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi and Harry Bertoia.

Among the most outstanding designs produced by his design studio are the Marshmallow Sofa by Irving Harper, the Coconut Chair, the Platform Bench and the Starburst Clock, also by Irving Harper. He articulated his design philosophy with these works and in the process became a seminal influence in the world of industrial design.

The China Shop textile design executed for George Nelson's studio is a quintessential example of Mid-Century Modernist design. More than fifty years after the China Shop design first saw the light of day it is still fresh and inspiring.

This George Nelson designed China Shop: Coffee/Chalk fabric is an impeccable example of Mid-Century design. China Shop: Coffee/Chalk has a design of abstract pottery-like shapes in chalk white, silver and cream over a dark brown background.

George Nelson's China Shop: Coffee/Chalk fabric has so many possibilities... draperies, wall hangings, seat cushions, pillows, lampshades, slipcovers and table covers are just a few of the items that can be made from this designer fabric.

J&O's selection of George Nelson's perpetually modern China Shop: Coffee/Chalk design is the perfect starting point for your decorative projects.
