Super lucky to of found this amazing sample book of vinyl upholstery for transport and upholstery trades just last week.
Dating from the 1950’s the book contains 60+ samples of vinyl showcasing different textures, patterns, colours and finishes.
See just a small selection below.
It’s amazing to recognise so many of the patterns and colours from the book on different pieces of furniture I’ve dealt with over the last 10+ years. However I must say my favourite was towards the rear of the book, and appears to of been a late inclusion as it is fixed differently to the other samples.
As you can see, this finish is called ‘Satellite’ and definitely has a strong atomic influence. Reminds me very much of those 1950’s French coat/cloth/hat racks by Roger Feraud.
