William Morris tapestries are a distinctive style of wall décor which makes a remarkable impression in any room or home.

They are unique in their designs as wall hangings because of their sense of movement and majestic composition. They show scenes from legendary stories or even religious events.

Morris, born in 1834 in Walthamstow, England, his movement in the decorative arts of the Victorian era begun the revival of the decorative arts in the 19th century. Morris and Co from 1875, produced furnishings, stained glass, tapestries and wallpapers that people desire, to this day.

It was his Pre-Raphaelite ideals of beauty in home décor, shared by Edward Burne-Jones, that inspired him to make a leap forward in décor which defied the industrial Victorian age, and instead were unique and original.

William Morris tapestries uses natural elements such as the acanthus leaves and vines to create pattern and sumptuous detail.

These Victorian tapestries such as in the Forest, Tree of Life, The Peacock, The Adoration of the Magi, Ehret die Frauen, Orange Tree, Flora and Pomona tapestries and more, have inspired the movement of art nouveau.

"Tapestry is a bright dream" Morris said, and his tapestries are truly distinctive pieces of art that display his exceptional artistry. Browse our great range of William Morris theme tapestries here.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!
