Here's a picture of our sofa's upholstery fabric.
Over the last few years I've been noticing it in television programmes such as Jeeves and Wooster, Sherlock Holmes (with Jeremy Brett and co) and on Foyle's War. Possibly it's an ITV / Granada / ITV3 thing. I've been trying to find out what it is.
Anyone watching Casebook of Sherlock Holmes on ITV3 - do you know the name of the upholstery fabric on the sofa? (!)Here's what looks like an extremely similar pattern on a chair that Edward Hardwicke's sitting on (as Dr Watson), episode 'The Priory School'.

It's the same fabric isn't it?
I have now found out what it's called, from a fabric supplier - "Jacobean Tapestry Fabric, Teastain". I feel I can rest easy now ;)
Illustrative picture showing the full-colour pattern pinched from their website follows... (our version is less colourful)
Here is a clipped bit of an image of some curtains
December 2014 - I also spotted it (below) on a YouTube video of the children's television programme from the early 1980s, The Box of Delights.
August 2015 - just spotted it in a video clip of A room with a view in which the lovely Rupert Graves portrays Freddy Honeychurch, while apparently sitting on one of our chairs ;)
