This weekend we went to the Alameda Point Antiques Fair. Besides having one of the best view of the San Fracnsico Bay Area, the Alameda Point Antiques Faire is the largest antiques show in Northern California. Held on the 1st Sunday of every month, the Faire boasts over 800 Dealer booths. All items are 20 years old or older.
We fell in love with some awesome large-scale vintage graphics from the late 1970s. They have recently come out of storage and brought to life by Michael Cahn, who bought the entire collection from San Rafael-based company, Graphilia.
Graphilia (Vintage Graphics) From the designer circa 1970: Graphilia textiles are a new concept in interior design. Bold designs have been individually serigraphed on fabric to create a series of dramatic wall hangings. They may be used individually or grouped to provide a strong visual focus for any interior. They may also be used to coordinate various styles of furnishings. Used in a sparsely furnished room, they add a feeling of completeness. Each design is professionally stretched on a sturdy pine frame and ready to hang. All colors are matched and approved by the original designer before reproduction. The colors are heat set and permanent, and an application of Scotchgard to each reproduction makes it easy to clean and maintain. Available from Vintage Graphics
We walked away with three amazing designs and hung them up immediately. See below.
