Paper Patterns, both Modern and Contemporary
Art & Design
Patterns this pretty deserve a place on the wall. But Scottish designer Diane Allan has parlayed her formal training in textile design to a line of paper products meant not for walls, but for wrapping presents. Via her company Deesigns, Allan showcases her well-honed design sensibilities with a range of lovely repeat patterns that invoke the best of Mid-Century Modern motifs with thoroughly contemporary flair—and in color schemes applicable to any occasion. If only there was a way to keep these artful Deesigns out of the dustbin.
