William Morris Panel

look at the next William Morris design
The design for this unusual sofa seat is attributed to William Morris and his apprentice and successor Henry Dearle. A watercolour of the design (1880-1890) is at the William Morris Gallery. A panel was woven in about 1910 by Morris & Co after the death of Morris and while Dearle was running the company.

William Morris Panel laid out as a piano stool

Beth Russell's needlepoint adaptation measures 15 x 48" (38 x 122cm). It makes a superb cover for a piano stool, window seat, headboard, foot stool or carpet runner. There is sufficient canvas around the design to allow the stitching of a border, which can be ordered separately.

William Morris Panel Rug with border

The design, doubled and mirror-imaged, is now available as a one piece rug.
Again there is sufficient space around the printed canvas to stitch a 3" (7.5cm) border.
This is not printed on the canvas, but may be purchased as a separate needlepoint kit consisting of coloured charts and wools.

Beth has recently designed a cushion to partner this design. You can see it by clicking here.
