Spoonflower Design Challenge: Murder Mystery Toile

Murder Mystery Toile Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: January 23, 2013

We're big fans of the style of design known as toile de Jouy, popularized in the 18th century, which looks great on both fabric and wallpaper. What we like best about toiles is that, while they come across as classical from an aesthetic perspective, the content of the designs themselves offers a ripe target for modern commentary. For this contest, we asked designers to come up with a murder-mystery-themed toile de Jouy. The winner is Italian designer <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/chicca_besso" target="new">Chicca Besso</a>'s "Who Poisoned the Roses?" Congratulations to her and to the rest of the wonderful top ten!
