Pattern: William Morris with a Twist

Art & Design

Anyone who’s a fan of pattern must surely be familiar with that jack of all trades, William Morris. His wallpaper and fabric patterns were prolific, and to choose a favorite would be like trying to choose which one of your kids you love the most. Truthfully? There’s nothing really new to talk about any of these patterns we’re showing you today, we just liked them so much we’d use any excuse to republish them.

But now that we think about it, you know what we’d really like to see? A couple of special editions of some of our favorite contemporary furniture pieces reissued in William Morris patterns. Not the real classics–that would be a bit blasphemous. But say like one of Blu Dot’s sweet couches, like their Bonnie Sofa or Clyde Sofa. Or maybe some Gus* chairs like their Truss chair or Carter Chair. Or even some sweet ottomans, like Jennifer Delonge’s Gliding Ottoman and Ava Ottoman.

What do you think?
