William Morris Blackthorn Placemat Set from The Met Museum


Our cork-backed placemats are printed with a detail from William Morris’s (British, 1834-1896) kaleidoscopic Blackthorn (1892), a woodblock-printed wallpaper in The Met collection. Morris was a prolific designer of lavish botanical motifs for wallpapers and fabrics. As the Arts and Crafts Movement’s leading figure, Morris believed that beauty, imagination, and order were the necessary components of a strong design. He frequently looked to the English countryside for inspiration.
