Golden Lily and Willow Patterns

William Morris Tiles from Textile Designs

Whatever you have in your rooms, think first of the walls; for they are that which makes your house and home; and if you don't make some sacrifice in their favour, you will find that your chambers have a kind of makeshift lodging appearance about them, however rich and handsome your movables may be. ~William Morris

Golden Lily

The Golden Lily tiles are based on detail from fabric on display at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California. This pattern is taken directly from that fabric. The lower left tile is closest to the colors of that fabric.

This tile is seamless on all four sides. Six-inch tiles are also available, but are not seamless

After the dissolution of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. ('The Firm'), Morris founded his own company, Morris and Co., setting up shop at 449 Oxford Street. By this time, Morris's attention had turned to woven fabrics. He employed Louis Bazin, who created the first pattern, Willow, in 1977, using a Jacquard Loon in a workshop near Queen Square. Willowwas first implented in fabric but late became one of Morris and Co.'s most popular designs.

I have several variations available. The original colors were green on a bisque cream. Willow is a seamless tile in both directions.
