June 17th, 2014


Full of optimism and energy after the dark period of the 2nd World War the 50’s era reflected celebrations, high spirits and razzle-dazzle. The fabulous fifties threw up many a glamour icon, but none as captivating as Marilyn Monroe herself.

Embracing this current key trend, Monroe is a simple yet stylish dobby weave upholstery fabric. It’s textured woollen bouclé creates a pre-worn bobbled effect reminiscent of fifties apparel. It conjures up an eclectic, nostalgic mix of retro memories from an optimistic feel-good decade.

The Monroe colour palette is both kitsch and happy reflecting the post war celebratory lift including candy pinks, retro blues and pop-art inspired tones. The product is named quite simply after ‘Marilyn Monroe’ who was one of the most celebrated iconic figures of fifties Hollywood stardom.
