William Morris Holland Park Rug

look at the next design
Blue Holland Park Rug

Alexander Ionides was one of Morris' most important patrons (see The Forest). He owned a magnificent house in Holland Park, London. In the late 1800s he commissioned Morris to produce a large hand-tufted carpet for his home. The design was called Carbrook and the original now rests with the Victoria & Albert Museum. 

Beth Russell, while retaining all the beautiful detail, has reduced the design to more manageable proportions and re-named it Holland Park.
