FAB50 Vintage 1950s Handmade Yellow Kitchen Wall Design Set of 4 Curtains

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Fabulous Fifties

The fifties were fabulous for so many reasons ... the war was finally in the past, everyone stepped out of the 40’s and could see hope on the horizon. With this hope came happiness and colour which was greatly reflected in textiles and home wares. Lucienne Day a British textile pattern designer started to make her way onto the scene creating a new and more abstract style of pattern making. These bolder colourful prints, brighter floral patterns and more adventurous fabrics started to make their way into the home and still bring us much joy to this day.

These gorgeous curtains, with a kitchen wall design in a bright yellow shade are sure to brighten up your home for the cold, dark winter.

Some of the hems of the curtains have come down but they can be easily sewn and the longest curtain has been made form 2 parts of fabric so the pattern isn't continuous but this is part of its charm and history. One of the curtains has been slightly faded by sunlight but this doesn't detract from the amazing beauty these curtains hold.
