This design was used frequently "back in the day" for vinyl upholstery, and was featured for the end-flaps of the Atomic Ranch book. Any information on it would be appreciated - I'd like to replicate it for a dishwasher door panel in my kitchen, or purchase the design, etc. This scan is from the aforementioned book:

Thanks!

It's a classic Formica pattern known as Boomerang and apparently it's been reissued

Yes, that decoration is similar to the vinyl pattern atomicarmidillo is looking for -- and "filled in" in the same way, perhaps. The vinyl pattern was monochomatic, of course. I can still see the little parallel ridges of the portions of the "squiggle" that were textured (ie, "colored").

I've posted this on DesignAddict to see if anyone there can help.

I saw this vinyl on the seats of an early 50's Buick that was in a junk yard. Original? Don't know. Could this be a clue? Hope so!
