This collection defines the relaxed elegance of British country living. With a look that is comfortable, timeworn and casually elegant, the English Manor Collection lends a definite hallmark of flawless good taste to any room. These classic patterns bring the beauty of the country-side indoors with lush blooms, intricate vinery, flowering branches and orderly palmettes. As practical as they are beautiful, these rugs provide decorating solutions with a look that is comfortable and durable.
In the late 1800s, the Arts and Crafts Movement swept through England and America. Architects and designers alike created environments with a new perspective, incorporating furniture, wallpaper, textiles, and carpets into highly decorative
interior spaces. Morris and Co., influenced greatly by its chief partner William Morris, became famous for intricate floral and foliage motifs inspired by both Persian design and vintage European textiles. This dramatic homage to the Wm. Morris style is adapted from Morris vine and pomegranate motifs, with an acanthus leaf border inspired by a Morris and Co. tapestry. The versatile color palette of our William Morris Red includes accents of deep indigo blue, medium blue, soft green, terra cotta, caramel, saffron yellow and ivory on a soft, warm red ground. Each of these colors has been specially dyed to achieve graduated shades of each hue on the wool yarns. The result when woven is a visual texture and depth of color that simulates the effect of aged vegetable dyes. And because the same color palette is used throughout the collection, finding coordinating rugs is easy.
