Tulip fabric from Tonic Living

Here we have yet another fabulous reproduction fabric from Tonic Living, this time influenced by mid century Scandinavian design.

Available in both 'dawn' and 'dusk' variations, this Tulip fabric is part of a Tonic Living's new 60s inspired range, Outside Oslo, from textiles designer Jessica Jones. The medium weight canvas is printed with either brightly coloured retro tulips on white, or more muted tones on brown. Ideal for upholstery or, as with all their fabrics, you can use the custom sewing service they offer if you're less craftily inclined.

$16 per yard (or $1 for a sample) from Tonic Living. Other designs from Jessica Jones, Frond & Picket, are also on the site. See the website for more details.

Boomerang Beat fabric from Tonic Living


Tonic Living create faithful reproductions of vintage textiles. Their website is full of superb examples of retro style fabrics but this Boomerang Beat print particularly stands out. The classic mid century atomic pattern is printed on hardwearing textured cotton barkcloth, making it a perfect choice for upholstery.

You can buy the material by the yard or, if your sewing skills are a little rusty, Tonic Living offer a custom sewing service for curtains and blinds.

$14.95 per yard from Tonic Living.
