Morris Forest Roman Blind
Designed by Alison Gee in 2013 this printed fabric has been inspired by Morris and Co.’s The Forest Tapestry. Drawn by William Morris Philip Webb and J.H. Dearle in 1887 The Forest Tapestry depicts scrolling acanthus leaves a lion peacock hare and fox amongst bunches of wild flowers. Some of these charming elements have been combined to create a stunning repeating pattern and digitally printed on velvet and linen.
“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” said William Morris (1834-1896) in his most well-known quotation. The prolific member of the Arts and Crafts Movement is celebrated today in his decorative natural motif designs of timeless quality that never lose their appeal.
