William Morris The Pimpernel Design
We are delighted to bring you a new and fresh colour-way from Amanda Joy designs for William Morris' The "Pimpernel" design. This colour-way is called 'Tea Party', as Amanda envisaged this design would make the perfect curtains, table cloth, table linen or upholstery on her morning chair, to enjoy whilst having a cup of tea.
This is an iconic design by William Morris, a leading figure in the Arts and Crafts Movement. This pattern features intertwining foliage, flowers, and intricate, stylised motifs.
The Pimpernel design, created around 1876, showcases Morris's distinctive style characterised by natural elements, repeating patterns, and a sense of balance and harmony. The design was initially used for wallpapers and later adapted for fabrics, adding richness and a touch of nature to interior decor.
Much like many of Morris's designs, the Pimpernel pattern reflects his passion for craftsmanship, medieval influences, and a celebration of nature's beauty. Its enduring appeal lies in its timeless elegance and the meticulous attention to detail that characterises all of Morris's work.
