WHERE CAN I FIND FAB­RICS THAT WILL SUIT A SEV­EN­TIES SCHEME?

Homes & Gardens - - ADVICE -

I’ve pur­chased an apart­ment in a Sev­en­ties build­ing and I’d like to fur­nish it with a nod to that pe­riod. Are there any plain cur­tain fab­rics used then that are still avail­able now? EB, Leam­ing­ton Spa, War­wick­shire.

A fab­ric much used for cur­tains in that pe­riod is hes­sian. Fabricuk, 0121 359 2349, fabricuk.com, has the Hes­sian fab­ric coloured jute cloth, W150cm, in 16 colours, £4.99m. Lush Fab­ric, 0151 427 9839, lush­fab­ric.com, also stocks Dyed jute fab­ric coloured hes­sian in 16 colours, W150cm, £9.50m. As all these hes­sians are light­weight, they will need a colour-re­lated lin­ing. Weaves for cur­tain­ing in the Sev­en­ties of­ten com­bined yarns to add in­ter­est. Scion, 020 3457 5862, styleli­brary .com/scion, catches the mood in its Plains Six book of 29 colours, which in­cludes Moss, Gold (top) and Spice, 75 per cent cot­ton, £38m. Dra­peable Eg­mont in wool/linen/vis­cose comes in eight colours in­clud­ing Cin­na­mon (mid­dle), £95m, Mar­vic, 020 8993 0191, mar­victex­tiles.co.uk.

Sev­en­ties colours mix per­fectly in the wool Huck­le­berry Fire­fly (bot­tom), £199m, de Le Cuona,
