William Morris Carpet MouseRug from The Met Museum


One of the founders of the Arts and Crafts movement, William Morris (British, 1834-1896) designed beautiful, handcrafted household objects that elevated decorative pieces to the realm of fine art. Using nature for his inspiration, Morris sought to “turn a room into a bower, a refuge.” The English countryside, with its hedgerows and native field and garden flowers, served as his touchstone and is reminiscent in the carpet from the Museum’s collection on which this design is based.
