“The details are not
the details. They make the design.” - Charles Eames
If you love the look of modern decor,
the pioneering modernist industrial designs of Charles and Ray Eames
will appeal to you. The Eames's iconic textile designs translated
abstract art into useful, everyday objects.
Crosspatch Primary is a
quintessentially "Eames" decorator fabric. The Crosspatch design
originated as the Eames's entry into a textile competition held by the
Museum of Modern Art in 1947. Four designs were submitted - the other
three being Dot, Small Dot and Circles - but only Crosspatch went into
production at the time.
This fantastic fabric has a vibrant and
ever fresh retro design of x's and dots within blocks. The solid blocks
measure about 5/8" x 5/8" while the outlined boxes are slightly
smaller. Keep in mind that the block sizes vary. The fabulous colors in
Crosspatch Primary include light orange, scarlet, navy blue
and teal over a cream background. The fabric has a Teflon finish with
an acrylic backing.
Crosspatch Primary by Charles
and Ray Eames can be used to make pillows, wall-hangings, seat
cushions, slipcovers, table covers, draperies, curtains, handbags,
garments and more.
