I am always looking for free knitting and crochet patterns. I saved the pattern associated with the photograph to the left on my Crochet x Knit Google+ page. I was captivated by both the pattern and the plaid sofa. As you can see, there are plaid curtains to match the sofa and a hot pink chair behind the woman. I love that sofa fabric and the rich tones in the room. I began to wonder how plaid would look with different curtains; should a plaid sofa always match the curtains to look its best? I was consumed by curiosity, so I decided to make a render.
I could not find fabric online that was similar to the plaid in the photograph. After looking at various tartans and other plaids, I realized the width of the stripes was key to the sofa not appearing to look like a shirt or skirt. The fabric needed to be durable home decor fabric as well. I eventually found Navy fabric by Duralee. The fabric does not have the same colors as the one in the photograph, but I like it just as much.
Links to the fabric and other items used as models in the render are below. The woman figure in the render is a configured Manuel Bastioni humanoid.
