Woodland Weeds Tiles

William Woodland Weeds Tiles

Art will make our streets as beautiful as the woods. ~William Morris

Woodland Weeds is based on a Morris and Co. wallpaper design. This design has the medieval millefleur look that William Morris was so fond of but with a late Victorian repeating scroll form.

The design for Woodland Weeds wallpaper is attributed to John Henry Dearle for Morris & Co. It was first printed in 1905, nearly a decade after Morris's death in 1896. It is interesting, though, because, although it has the tidy millefleurs look that Dearle does very well, it has several characteristics that are uniquely Morris. Morris incorporated natural "imperfections" in his designs; he would design elements based on what he actually saw. A leaf might curl under, or he would present the backside of one flower, giving his designs a depth that was not commonly seen. Dearle has also done that in this design.
