Robert Stewart midcentury cloths at Classic Textiles


Whilst flicking through the current edition of Elle Decoration, I noticed a piece on the upcoming Lana MacKinnon textiles, which sadly aren't online as yet at Classic Textiles. But the work of another interesting designer is available to buy, Robert Stewart.

Stewart was a contemporary of Lucienne Day, who was responsible for paintings, tapestries, graphics, ceramics, murals and of course, the textiles you see here. In fact, he produced work for the likes of Liberty, Pringle and Donald Brothers in the 1950s.

Eight examples of his work from the '50s have been digitally reproduced by the Centre for Advanced Textiles by kind permission of his widow, Sheila Stewart, all of which are absolutely stunning.

The Raimoult above is available in red or blue, selling for £75 per metre. The Kilmun below in in khaki or plum, also at £75 per metre.
