Vintage Scandinavian fabric

Here's a wonderful piece of vintage Scandinavian (Swedish?) fabric dating from the 50s or 60s. I've framed a piece for my wall and will be selling some shortly from my fabric etsy shop.
The last photo is a snapshot of my 60s coffee post alongside my Orla Kiely pot (I use it as a vase) that I got for Christmas.

70s wallpaper cabinet renovation

My good friend Alice (Alice Apple) was lucky enough to win some fabulous 70s wallpaper. It turned out I was the underbidder and she very kindly swapped me a piece which I've now put to some use on this old 60s cabinet. The top one had sliding doors too but I wanted to have easy access. I'm using it for my collection of Galt picture dominoes etc.. and lots of my cat toys. I'm still wondering wether or not to paint the unit white as I don't normally go in for dark wood.
