10 Galesburg Refliste^Moij, Ggtesburg, Friday, Sept. 20, 1963 it By VIVIAN BROWN NEW YORK (AP) — A new look in home furnish ings may well be black fur niture and paisley fabrics, says fabric expert Zelena Brunschwig, of the American Institute of Interior Designers. She bases her forecast on a trend noted in Paris. "Black lacquer furniture and especially reproductions of Boulle (cabinetmaker who worked in the Louis XIV style) furniture is very popular there, and it is only natural that this type of furniture will find a vogue here," she predict. "It is difficult to find original pieces of Boulle, but the reproductions are very good. It is charmingly used with adaptations of paisley motifs, oarticularly those done on black grounds." Mrs. Brunschwig, who was a decorator with one of the best known houses before she became a style leader in the fabric field News for and About Women 20 years ago, has an eye for noting new fabric trends. Fabric Long Popular "Paisley has really been in vogue for about 150 years. But what has been so interesting about it has been the adaptations made by many countries. South of France fabrics described as provincial took their inspiration from paisley motifs, interpreting them in their own way to get fresh allure." She found many original blocks in Provence and Alsace, adapting them for screen printing. Britain turned out rich, opulent colors and designs, also using Kashmir designs as inspiration. The town of Paisley in Scotland gave them their name. Paisley is the type of design that lends itself to any room .n the house, she points out, and to curtains, furniture covers, pillows. It is a good fabric for amateur decorators because there is less chance to make mistakes. Has New Paisleys Originally paisleys were printed on red, she says, exhibiting a beautiful red paisley-bordered table cover. "I liked this so much that I had it adapted for yard goods with a border on each side," she explains. Typical of the 11 new umuure an paisleys in her collection, it is a rich colorful design. The resurgence of paisleys in recent months indicates a cycle that hasn't been felt since the Victorian era, she says. "Since paisley designs were really taken from Persian and Indian motifs, it is even successful with Queen Anne and earlier periods of furniture because these prints were brought back by the East India Company in the early 18th Century," she explains. Many Motifs Though there is a general likeness and color, most paisley prints arc unrelated to the true Kashmir shawls imported by the company. Small sections woven on looms were sewn together in a patchwork construction. Today's paisley designs arc printed from European wood blocks or adapted for screen printing in modern dyes. There are many popular striking motifs in paisley design including dates, iris, rosettes, seaweed, ferns and shells. The pine cone motif of the Kashmir shawls is usually bent like a windblown cypress with a lower section suggesting the rondel form popular in Persian art. The lotus is a popular motif and when shown from a side view resembles an open fan. The motif dPalsL. 9 A PET PAISLEY. . . .Zelena Brunschwig shows off new fabric. known as honeysuckle is really derived from the palm tree, rather than from the honeysuckle we know. Many of the smaller patterns, often classified as Indian, are actually taken from 18th Century prints with a Chinese influence. Recounts Travels Mrs. Elizabeth Sinclair, a member of the club, told the Knox County Social Service Club of her trip to Europe this summer, when the group met at the American Beauty Restaurant this week.
