I found some very interesting books in the library and also an unexpected one, the Tibetan rugs that are very inspiring. I looked for books that talked about pattern, different layout styles, natural fabrics and colour. They are also full of references about different designer that I looked for.
My favourite book is ‘The Power of Pattern’ by Susanna Salk. it is very contemporary with different designers and design companies references and it has a very useful table of contents where it divides patterns by style.
