Coarse weave polymer

This newest faux polymer experiment from France’s Sylvie Peraud may take you back to the 80’s. Didn’t you own a sofa made of this material? With roman shades to match?

It makes me smile to think that the coarse weave is back in fashion and that Sylvie has mastered it in polymer. When you zoom in, you’ll swear it’s real.

Go to her site and her Flickr pages. I think we’ll be seeing more. Have a nostalgic weekend.

      Thanks Cynthia !
      You know what? The funniest part is that part of the inspiration to this coarse weaving came from the sofa we had when I was a kid and we were living in the states….but that was back in 1977. I still remember the fabric and lately my mom bought a cover that looks exactly like the sofa did. Funny that my memories meet yours.
      Have a wonderful week-end!
