This was one of those unexpected surprises that make Market such a treat. David Textiles has never really been on my radar, but their full-page ad in the Market program for their collection of reproductions from the V&A Collection made me drop what I was doing and head straight to their booth. They are reproducing William Morris prints and several iconic midcentury modern prints, though I’m embarrassed to say I can’t identify them myself! Maybe you readers can come to the rescue here …
Now that I look at the photos, I’m not into some of the colorations they chose, but I liked them when I was sitting there so maybe it’s the fault of my own color correcting skills. I do think the more neutral ones are great and they’ll definitely become part of my stash when they’re released in March 2011.
(I meant this photo to show the print up close and in action, but now I realize it reads as a “heaving bosom” shot! I never say this, but, “LOL.”)
And the William Morris:
