....Of Botannical Prints and Pool Table Felt
So I have been convinced rather thoroughly that tartan is not a good idea for the pool table, so it was back to the larger samples I ordered. I've edited my 10 first round picks down to two, a brick red and an orangey red called paprika. Here they are in the context of other fabrics and a piece of the oak pool table.
And I saw this print on a design blog. I am looking at two over each daybed in the front room downstairs, and have found four that depict plants we have right outside our door in the woods---pine, oak, mistletoe and moss. They hang on black dowels and are suspended by a cord to hang on a small hook. The one below is hanging on an exposed electrical cord for a sconce, to stretch out from its rolled up journey in the mail. I only ordered one to assess the size and quality. ID doesn't care for the hanging system and would rather see it framed....I am not married to either look but do like the casualness of no glass. The downside is that these have been popping up in the most unlikely places and on other design sites, at at $200 each they are in danger of becoming ubiquitous. But I do like them!
Here are close ups with the fabrics that will be seen directly underneath the hangings (pillows on daybeds). The front room has ceilings of almost 10ft so these will fit nicely on those walls. They are quite large at 36" width x 44" tall (I think).
